Planes, trains, and yes... automobiles.....

Well that was quite the weekend! I unexpectedly had to work on Friday... and not a casual shift, either... we're talkin' I rolled home from the ol' salt plant at around 8pm.... Oy! Then on Saturday, I jetted out to Vancouver. One of Chris's youngest offspring moved out to 'Hollywood North', so he drove her and her belongings across a province and a half, spent just enough time there to unload her things, and then turned around and headed back. He picked me up at YVR, and I was able to help break up the monotony of the second half of the 27+ hour round trip for him.

Love plane rides! Although it was only
a one-drink-long flight....

I love the snow-covered mountains!

The big city!

Here she is.... What a beauty! Very creative as well.
She's going to do fantastic in Vancouver!

And the road trip begins.....

Controlled burn?

They're a happy bunch at the
Timmy's in Sicamous!

Of course we stopped at Shuswap Lake.

A mysterious-looking Three Valley Gap....

Approaching Roger's Pass.

I never get tired of driving
through the Rockies!

Seeing the mountains in the rear-view mirror
always makes me a little melancholy...

The drive was actually pretty fun - I love road trips! The scenery was stellar and the company was great. Turns out it was not a bad way to spend a couple of lovely spring days.

Kristen, if you are reading this, I wish you happiness and adventure in your new city. Your Dad is worried silly about you, but I know you can handle it, and I'm confident you will be successful and are going to completely rock it! Look out world! Woot!
