Blue Lake Bound 2013

 

Our first trip of the 2013 camping season has begun.

Destination? Blue Lake Fishing ‘Resort’ about 15 kilometers north of Boston Bar..

We were hooked up and on the road by 2:30. Sure nice to be looking out the mirror and seeing the 'big white box’ following behind.

The road to Boston Bar is along the Fraser Canyon..not a road I have travelled in a few years.. mountains..

and tunnels, aplenty..

.the promise of a nice weekend was looking dismal for a few miles..

..yes, that is rain and big black clouds?

not to worry it was only for about 10 minutes..

The road into the ‘resort’ is a gravel one..

..more like a ‘goat trail’..good thing we didn’t meet anyone coming down the hill..

We are in site 34..

..the word ‘rustic’ comes to mind..but we have a power and water service site..so I guess it isn’t too ‘rustic’..

All went well with the set up..that was until we filled the hot water tank..within a few minutes we had water leaking everywhere!..one loose connection?..

We mopped everything up..one roll of paper towel and a few other towels..

..just a small ‘set-back’..

..all is well this evening..dinner is done..the campfire is lit.. IMG_0924

..and the Disaronna is poured..

We have come to accept the fact that water is not our ‘friend’..first the dishwasher and now our ‘six gallon hot water tank’!

Cheers Everyone!
