|Just past Hope, BC.|
|Snow at the higher elevation nearing the Coquihalla Summit.|
|20 minutes after the snowfall, we were back at lower elevations and in the rain.|
|Once past the city of Merritt, in the the BC Nicola Valley, the snow returned.|
|All was quiet in the Shushwap Lakes region in the North Okanagan Valley.|
|A mountainside resort along the Trans-Canada Highway near Revelstoke, BC.|
|It will not be long before the mountain peaks are covered in the white stuff.|
|Several of these wildlife overpasses were built to keep the animals from being hit by vehicles. They prove to be most effective in reducing unnecessary deaths or injury to beasts and humans.|
|Jeanette and I were on the road for the drive north on Wednesday morning.|
Being the Thanksgiving weekend, we've been invited to two turkey dinners. Yeah! We love turkey.... and we love to enjoy that with family. We will be at my sister's home for Saturday turkey dinner then another turkey dinner at Jeanette's sister's place on Sunday.
Before that though, there is work to complete before Jeanette's family farm is ready for the handover to the new owner.
|Beautiful weather here in central/east Alberta.|
|Jeanette's uncle and aunt's farm - very near the family farm that is being sold.|
|Jeanette's mom was apprised of the 'Offer To Purchase' and understood her responsibility to sign the document.|
|Mom is signing the 'Offer to Purchase'.....while the buyer, Darcy, looks on.|
Back at the farm, Bob and Deb joined us in mid-morning to begin to complete the work we had begun this past summer. Only a few major projects required completion and the girls got busy with cleaning and detailing the house. Darlene, who has a day job, joined in later in the afternoon to move stuff too.
Some furniture was moved and more will be moved in the days ahead. Some family members are taking some important (to them) things and some stuff is being recycled.
|On the drive back from Vegreville, this small lake was wall to wall with snow geese flying south. They were taking a rest here.|
|Sister, Darlene, claimed this old radio.|
|Jeanette found this old shot gun. It will reside at her sister's farm.|
The new owner is coming by next Tuesday morning for a walk about. We'll explain the operating systems - as best as we can. When the title transfer is completed, he'll receive the keys and the girls (all four of them) will no longer have to worry about the house wintering another year.
|Three of the four sisters: L-R Deb, Jeanette and Darlene|
|During one of her walkabouts at the farm, Jeanette captured the photo of this incredibly large wasp nest. It is quiet now....but it was a busy, busy hive during the summer.|
Thanks for dropping by.
