As a new year begins and we say so long to 2012, it is often a time to pause and reflect on the year that has passed..366 days..12 months..52 weeks..8784 hours?..
Where did all that time go?..Some of that time was spent working, sleeping, eating , watching TV, shopping, on the computer..oh and of course doing some fun stuff too..
I was off work for the first few months of 2012 with a ‘foot injury’….spent a lot of time rediscovering an old hobby of knitting..
..before we knew it Spring was here..
..and we welcomed a new ‘orange four -wheeled jeep’..
..a spring picnic at our favourite beach..Birch Bay, Washington
..and then it was the first camping trip of the season..
..June was a rainy month..we had one four wheeling trip..heading north to the town of Squamish and the Britannia mines..
..before we knew it, July was here and were Monck Park bound..our last trip with our old tent trailer..
..mid July we purchased a brand new tent trailer..
..and then the next day we headed south towards Kalispell, Montana..
..and so began the adventures of Bart..
..not to worry..Tucker is still a common topic..
..while staying Montana we met up with Jim and Sandie Dixon..
our summer vacation also took us to the city of Nelson, B.C..and the home of our friends, Brenda and Ken..
I spent a week at Brae Island Regional Park..just me and Tucker..
..we celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary..
September we went to Manning Park, Coldspring Campground..
it was a bit chilly, but the furnace did a fine job of keeping us warm..too bad we had no running water?
..our last trip of the season was in mid September, Monck Park again..
..sunny and warm..and our friends, Robbie and Bob were camped right next door..
…it was a lovely weekend and a very nice ending to our camping season for 2012..
October was yet another month that went by so quickly..Thanksgiving weekend we went for a drive to Ross Lake..we should have taken the trailer..a perfect fall weekend..and an empty campground!
..November is my least favourite month..the days are short and the weather is not that good….dark before we even get home from work..rain and more rain..not one photo was taken?
..December..Christmas was the highlight..
..and a turkey dinner with all the trimmings..
..so if you made it to the end of my ‘highlight reel’ for 2012 I just want to say thank you!
..as we head into 2013, we just want to wish all our blog readers a very Happy New Year, may 2013 bring you much happiness, good health and safely travelled miles and of course, a beautiful view out the windshield!
