|A great back road ride heading up towards Mount Baker, Washington State.|
|We love riding in these canopied roads.|
|This beautiful, clear, lake only permits motorized boats with less than 10 hp engines.|

We found a good lunch place in Burlington. Later, we dropped into the huge Camping World nearby to price out some RV services. With the motorcycle heated grips at the end of their useful lives, we ordered a new set from the motorcycle shop nearby.
Seven hours after the start of our ride - crossing the border into the US, and enjoying a wonderful fall day on some amazing back roads - we returned to the Canadian border and back home near 6:00 pm.
Shortly after arriving back home, our Calgary visitors 'texted' that they were well into their 9.5 hour drive from Calgary to Langley. They were not tired, traffic on the Trans Canada Highway was light, and that precipitated the decision to make the drive to our home in one shot. They arrived at our door shortly after midnight. We visited for a good 90 minutes before calling it a night.
|Jeanette's sister Deb gets to share some time with Easton and Ginette.|
|Jeanette and Deb ran some errands on Saturday and they chose to stop by Trevor, Ginette and Easton's house for a visit. Easton was busy in his play station but offered a smile and hugs to his great aunt and his nana.|
|Easton is changed and ready to party! Love that cute hat!|
Bob and I kept busy driving around the Langley countryside. Following a coffee at Krause Berry Farm, we purchased a blackberry pie for dinner and drove into Fort Langley before heading back for home. Krause Berry Farms
|Deb and Bob....working on dinner preparations.|
Sunday morning saw Bob and Deb drive to the Vancouver Airport South Terminal for a quick flight to Powell River. They had planned a three day visit with life long friends who retired there a few years back. It was a great day for flight over the mountains and for crystal clear views of the Pacific inside ocean passage. Discover Powell River
After Deb and Bob left for their flight, Jeanette and I prepared to move the 5th wheel out of its resting place and on to the front driveway. We did just that. The fiver will house some pre-wedding guests (part of the wedding party) for a pre-wedding party this Tuesday and Wednesday. Once the wedding party head for the downtown Vancouver hotel, the sheets will be changed and the fiver will be ready to receive two nieces with children. They will occupy the 5th wheel while my two sisters and a nephew and his wife occupy a local hotel The spare rooms in our home will house two of Jeanette's sisters, spouses and kids. It is going to be a busy time!
|Fiver set up and ready to serve as sleeping accommodations.|
We received a telephone call last night with news that Deni and Courtney had arrived from Edmonton, Alberta, They were at Courtney's mom's house in Surrey - about 20 minutes west from our home. They drove out yesterday. We will see them at our home this Tuesday evening.
|All set. B&B anyone?|
That's it for now....but as the visitor traffic increases, and the activities begin, we'll keep you updated.
