Day ‘Tripping’

 

Our ‘long weekend’ is but a distant memory..the fans and dehumidifier left this morning..

..all is quiet finally and the dishwasher is repaired..$182 later but at least I don’t have to do dishes the ‘camping’ way anymore..

Now we wait until the insurance adjuster does the paper work and then we can choose our new flooring material..

To escape the noise of the ‘fans’ this weekend there were a few walks..

..our local lake  is pretty this time of year, even in the rain..

..a lovely day for a stroll..if only Tucker would walk in a ‘straight line’..

While we were downtown, Doug had his own adventure..a ‘boy’s day out’..two men making a ‘break for it’..IMG_0573

…it was an early start as the sun came up over the mountains..

  1. That looked like a great weekend daytrip alright. Especially liked all those country places. Getting out & dealing with winter first hand is sometimes the best & most enjoyable way to do deal with it.

  2. Loved your picture of the church. Looks like a nice get away from the noise at home. I hope the camper gets moved before the thaw too.

  3. I remember those days. The weekends were way too short and the weeks seemed way too long. Soon ... soon .. your time will come.

  4. We enjoyed our time at Stanley Park in March, 2006. We rode our bikes and then I visited the aquarium while Dave went golfing and got a hole-in-one! He has a certificate to prove it! :)

  5. Quite the contrast in countryside: You in urban and Doug in country. Lovely shots from their trip out into the interior.

    So, it seems your lives are returning to normal with the dishwasher fix....and repairs?

  6. I'm betting your kitchen floor came up a whole lot easier than ours! ;)
    Looks like fun was had by all!!! And Dean hasn't changed a bit...well maybe the hair colour!

  7. Nice to see your repairs are progressing well and that things on the home-front are getting back to normal. Looked like a nice weekend for you and Doug both. Enjoyed seeing all the beautiful pictures. Have a great Wednesday.

  8. Taking a trailer on the ice? Hmmm ... I'm not sure I'd want to risk that, but the solitude sure looks good.

  9. SO you can have fun in the cold and snow. Like that self washing trailer...

  10. You sure live in a beautiful area...We loved British Columbia when we drove the Cassiar Hwy back from Alaska...stopping at Hyder along the way..Now that's another story!

  11. Boys always like to play in the mud, even if it's only on the outside of their truck. Those snow scenes are beautiful. Hope that trailer didn't leave any water in their tanks! Looks like everyone had a good day.
