|A photo Jeanette and I took at Belmont Golf Course when motorcycling last Thursday|
|Coquihalla Highway north towards Kamloops, BC|
|Fantastic summer like weather for mid-September on the high mountain highway.|
|Nearing the small city of Merritt, BC.|
|Riding along Nicola Lake on Highway 5A|
|Nearing Kamloops, this farmer was busy haying and bailing.|
|Barriere is when we left Highway 5 and rode east through the town and for another 35 kilometres to the lake and cabin.|
|Soon to leave the pavement.....|
|...for this smooth gravel road.|
|Pleasant 5 hour ride up to the cabin - with breaks, lunch and fuel stops.|
|Our view from the deck during dinner.|
|The sun setting at the western end of the lake.|
|Back at the cabin, Jeanette and Ginette were up and breakfast was being prepared. Easton is mixing the pancake batter.|
|A neighbour flew his float plane in and tied it at his dock. The next morning he took off back for wherever home is.|
|Fun time with Easton in the sand. What's not to like about that. It's so touching to watch him discover so many new things.|
|He amused himself for quite a long time.|
|Mister boater at the helm....|
|Cruising at high speed....|
|"Hey....whatch er you doing dad?????"|
|The dock below the cabin|
|A view of the cabin from dock side...|
|I handled the steaks.....Jeanette handled the other fixings....|
|Sunset on Saturday night...|
|Once breakfast was completed, and dishes washed, mother and daughter headed off in the kayaks while Trevor, Easton and I busied ourselves with loading the boat onto the trailer to return it to the Lower Mainland for winter storage.|
|Trevor is giving the boat some final touch ups....|
|Just leaving the cabin in the woods.|
Lunch had, we continued our journey south on the Coquihalla Highway and home. We were in the garage and unpacking by 6:00 pm.
What a fantastic long weekend we lived up at the cabin on Barriere Lake. Talk about a 'peaceful, easy feeling.......while there!
|Easton had a blast...... Here he is enjoying corn on the cob!|
Oh....and there is no Internet or cell service at the lake. If not for a land line phone, we would be completely out of touch while there. Not a bad thing!
Thanks for dropping by.
