Kids, my sister and I are hitting the road - heading to the Okanagan to attend our cousin's wedding. We plan to make a full circuit, going via the Fraser Canyon and returning along the Hope-Princeton. This is familiar territory for us, as we grew up in Kelowna and made the trip so often between there and Vancouver, as I did again when I returned there to raise my kids.
The last wedding was my sister's and my cousins, my daughter and I were all lined up in a photo, dressed in black....we called ourselves the First Wives Club. THIS time it is our cousin who is getting married, my sister is divorced, and it's a whole other lineup. Rather hilarious how much things change and how much they remain the same. The only thing certain is change.
I am excitedly looking forward to seeing all the scenery, and will blog photos on my return. I'll try to remember to take some pictures of the humans too, though I generally prefer my scenery without people in it.
I'll try to catch up with all of you when I get back. Summer has been so hectic, I have had a hard time trying to keep abreast of the blogging world. I am hoping the pace will slow in September. Till then, will do my best, my friends, to visit as often as I can.
I took a photo of my little windowsill of treasures, with Pup's memorial corner, my jade and stone inuukshuks, eagle feathers, sage, abalone shell, soapstone eagle, and amethyst crystals, candles and incense, as a beacon of home to return to. Going away is always exciting, but coming home is the best!
Lori's friend Warren has come to look after the menagerie...........so we wont have to worry about a thing.
Yay! ROAD TRIP!!!!!!!!!!
