Beautiful Squamish

It is time to hit the road and we are squeezing in those last special moments. My camera is active again to capture the amazing surroundings and the special times. The last walks and hikes, a flight tour of the Garibaldi Range, driving lessons on the Tonka, and soaking up the town of Squamish on Farmer's Market Day.   It'll be so hard leaving!

Saturday Farmer's Market.. 

We leave Squamish this Thursday and head to Victoria as our final stop in Canada before our homeward  (and southward) journey.

We have given ourselves 5 weeks - drive down the Washington, Oregon & California coast, San Francisco, inland to the Yosemite, Death Valley, Vegas, Grand Canyon, Painted Desert of New Mexico and then straight home through the Niagara border. It's a tall order so we'll just see  how much ground we cover before our time table dictates we shift into high gear and hit the interstate system home.

I hope  everyone had a great Labour Day Weekend!

.........And the Back to School shift is going well (for those with kids).
