Driving that old logging truck

Counting rings - now how old is this stump?

Don't worry Anika, I can get this thing running again

Mighty hard & skinny tires - not made for a smooth ride

The whole famiily with Poppa and Oma

Anika's cuddly bear

Just a bit wet outside

Rrelaxing after a long day

Hello Everyone!

Today was another rainy, yucky, cloudy, wet day – a great day to spend it indoors at the local Museum. We enjoyed viewing the native masks and artwork. Next we headed to the logging section where the kids climbed on the antique logging truck. Brody decided to check out the engine and see if he could fix it and make it work again! LOL! We tried to count the thousands of rings in the huge log that was sitting in the middle of the room. Then we took turns pumping the old water pump outside the log cabin. After ringing the logger’s dinner bell and the train bell – only once – as per the instruction sheet we receive as we enter the gallery, we head to the fishing gallery. Here we find the old Willows hotel as well as a genuine float house, complete with outhouse! We learn about fishing from pleasure to industrial.

Just before we leave the gallery we stop in the 20 seat theatre to watch the 18 minute movie about the Ripple Rock explosion from 50 years ago. We stay a bit longer to see the 7 minute cartoon explaining how the Big Rock arrived on the shores of Campbell River. As the parents stop to check out the gift shop the kids noticed the 60 power binoculars as well as the huge Museum bear that sits in the foyer. We even stopped to get a family photo with this cuddly bear. All in all a great way to spend a cold wet autumn day. Till next time, Peter & Connie
