Plainly said, we have been busy entertaining company from Calgary, Alberta. With the other activities that keep us busy, I have not had the time to blog. I did find some time to sneak some reads from other bloggers though.

|Found on our Friday drive into Washington State|
|Deb and Jeanette in the pumpkin patch|
|Deb and Bob are golfers.....and we stopped by one of my favourite courses - Shuksan GC.|
Many pumpkin farms were displaying their offerings. Very nice!
|The river front harbour at La Conner, WA|
La Conner, WA, is a quaint little fishing port that has made the local springtime tulip festival a must see event. At this time of the year, the rustic town caters to the non-working tourists; such as us.

|A must stop at the Edaleen Dairy just south of the US/Canada border crossing. Deb and Jeanette with ice creams in hand. The extreme background includes an early evening view of Mount Baker.|
Their ice cream is so delicious. We had to treat ourselves. Edaleen Dairy
Apart from other planned activities, Saturday included a visit to the famous Granville Island in Vancouver. Home | Granville Island

|Stunningly beautiful trails featuring tall trees, deep canyons, waterfalls and more.|

|And a parting favourite activity, a nice pony ride through some corn stalks.|
Monday morning offered another beautiful day and once our breakfast was over with, Deb, Bob, Jeanette and I took a long walk around our neighbourhood and into the local park. Back home, Bob and Deb sorted their luggage before we drove them back to the airport for the return flight to Calgary.
Back home, Jeanette and I were quick to change out of shorts and into jeans for a quickly planned motorcycle ride. Our weather continues to offer hot and sunny days so we took advantage to ride out to Harrison Hot Springs. An hour or so later, we rode over the Fraser River and into the City of Chilliwack before taking several back country paved roads all the way back home. What a treat!

|We sat on this very bench and enjoyed coffees while looking out on the lake.|
Fun, fun, fun! No complaints! Thanks for dropping by.
