We got up at our usual time, had breakfast, I blogged, then we said goodbye to mother’s friends. After that we were on the road.
We first stopped at the Manning Park Lodge, we weren’t really hungry for lunch, but it was a nice half-way spot to have a break.
We walked around the shop and learned that the park is named after someone who worked diligently and was high up in the forestry department and was a champion of recreational parks.
After that we drove on to the Hope Slide, and I gotta tell you, compared to the Frank Slide, this one was a bit of a letdown, all there was was a parking lot and a sign explaining what happened. I suppose in essence, what else do you need? Here are some pictures.
After the Hope Slide we drove on to Hope and splurged on Subway for lunch. For a small shop in a small town, it sure was busy. After that we fuelled up for “cheap gas” at $134.90.
Then we drove on to Harrison Hot Springs. This is a place that I have been a number of times, and it has changed a great deal over the years yet still retained its small-town charm. Here are some photos I took this morning while the town was still.
Today is an exciting day where I go to mothers, do laundry, and clean up Wanda; oooh, exciting. Tomorrow is the day of the BBQ and I will post some pictures (day after tomorrow).
It will be interesting to have a chance to see and explore my own hometown and see what has changed and what has not.
I am not sure if I will disconnect from Wanda or not. It depends on where I can park her. As well, there is so much that I leave in her and get when I need, I know that I will go, oh yeah I will just change . . . wait a minute, I don’t have Wanda with me.
As well, I also know that I will have to take Wanda into downtown Vancouver just to get some pictures of her in town (or she would never forgive me). As well then she will have earned her “Vancouver” sticker.
Well, time to start the day now.
