|RV Friends - Hector, Diane and Chico - were visiting from Vancouver Island|
The other reason why they traveled in the motor home was to show it, and possibly sell it, to a Langley based couple who had been shopping for a high end motor home.

Wanting to take a second look at the coach - and with Hector and Diane coming over to our Langley home for the surprise party - they drove their coach onto a BC Ferries ship and showed up at our home. The interested buyers live about 15 minutes from our home.

While hiking, Hector called our cell to inform us that the couple had made a formal offer and that Hector had agreed to their price. The Travel Supreme motor coach was sold. It was a sad moment for Hector and Diane but they had resolved to move in a new direction with their winter snow-birding adventures.
Friday evening had the four of us drive about 30 minutes east and into the Fraser Valley to attend a surprise 75th birthday party for another RVer we met and have become fast friends with. Trena had long planned a surprise party for her husband, Lucky. As it turned out, he had no clue about the party till he arrived at the lovely Yarrow Community Centre, tree canopied park where a very nice group of friends had gathered on a beautiful summer evening. While approaching the party area, we all began singing 'Happy Birthday'. Lucky was completely surprised to see so many friends out for this celebration.
Not big on formalities, Lucky sure was thrilled to see Hector, Diane, Jeanette and me. Having met over five years ago at the Seven Feathers RV Resort in southern Oregon, we connected and have stayed in touch ever since. What fun!

I will quite likely see Hector, Diane and Chico very soon. The Sockeye salmon are running on the west coast of Vancouver Island and I have been invited to go fishing for a few days. And I look forward to that. As of this writing, I plan to motorcycle out to Nanaimo - on the Island - this Thursday, July 2nd - following our July 1st Canada Day holiday. More on the fishing trip when I next blog.
Sunday morning had me riding off to Tim's House of Knowledge - better known as our Sunday morning 'Open Mic' session at Tim Horton's coffee shop - where we learn and share so much wisdom. LOL.
And that covers things from here for now. Thank you for dropping in.
