In July we went for a quick trip to Canada. Well 'quick' is not an apt description. It is not easy getting from here to there. It takes a few flights and two days. Oh well, once we were there, it was a whirlwind endeavor.
We left Placencia on a Tuesday and arrived in Victoria on a Wednesday. First things first, vehicle rental and to my brother Ken's place to pick up our 'stuff' stored there. Thursday morning we were on the first ferry to the mainland on our way to Edmonton. We stopped overnight in Hinton and had our first 'steak' in a long time. Friday, it was on to Edmonton, where we met up with some friends and more friends. Saturday, there was a barbecue and we saw lots more friends that came out to visit us. Sunday morning, we were on the road again back to Victoria with a stopover in Merritt. Monday afternoon saw us back in Victoria.
We had a lot of people to see and shopping to do, so we tried to organize it.
Tuesday was a 'us' day, we wandered around the city, did some shopping and went to dinner. Wednesday, out to see Bob's eldest daughter and her family. Thursday dinner with my brother Ken and his wife Deb followed by drinks with my two nieces Alice and Rowena. Mom was supposed to come to dinner but declined. Friday we saw Tamara and Matt (it was Matt's birthday), and went to a his lacrosse game that night. Saturday we were back to the airport for the trek home to Placencia.
