Fall 2008 - Winter 2009 travel blog

Friday Dec 5, Connie and Jill braved the Christmas shopping crowds at the mall in Burnaby while Shiloh and I walked from the RV Park to the Peace Arch located about 2 kilometres west of the park.

Saturday Dec. 6 we went to Langley to complete our Christmas shopping. After fighting the Christmas crowds we headed into White Rock and took Isla for a long walk around White Rock. In the evening John, Jill & Lucas enjoyed a swim and a soak in the hot tub while Grandma Connie & Isla played at the trailer.

Sunday Dec. 7 we walked again to the Peace Arch. In the afternoon Connie had her first dip in the pool and the hot tub. It was actually fun because we had the pool to ourselves and Connie was able to stay afloat using both pool noodles to swim around.

Monday Dec. 8 started out with a call from Lucas wondering if we could pick up a free used fridge that he had found on Craig’s List. The fridge was in Delta which is not too far from White Rock. We picked up Lucas, Jill & Isla and headed off to pick up the fridge. The old pink fridge was waiting for us when arrived at the location. The fridge looked a lot better once Lucas cleaned it up and it even worked. We loaded the fridge and then headed back to White Rock to stop at Wal-Mart and get some Christmas pictures of Isla. Well that is another story as Isla is very busy and did not sit still for pictures. It took both Jill & Lucas to keep Isla in place long enough to get some pictures taken. Once we finished the pictures we dropped Jill, Lucas & Isla off in White Rock and Connie and I headed across the US boarder to check out the surrounding area immediately to our south. We stopped at a couple of local bars one in Blaine, WA and one in Custer, WA. and then headed back to the 5er for the evening.

Tuesday Dec 9 we took the pets to Hazelmere Kennels to board them for the next week as we travel back to Alberta and Saskatchewan to see family prior to Christmas. After dropping the pets off we headed into Langley to an RV dealer to pick up a few parts that we needed for the 5er. Then we stopped in White Rock for some last good byes with Jill, Lucas & Isla before flying to Edmonton tomorrow.

Wednesday Dec 10 we got up early and had the 5er readied as we would be away for the next week. The shuttle bus picked us up at the RV Park at 6:0am and took us to the airport as our flight was at 8:05 to Edmonton. It was great to see the sun shine versus the cloud and rain we had been experiencing recently at the West Coast. Doug & Judy Leflar along with Connie’s mom were there to greet us and take us to Stettler where we had a visit and spent the night.
