A few days ago, we went on a bear hunt. Deanna is always talking about seeing bears at Minnekhada Park, so my dad wanted to go out there and show Lee the teds. But we were too late. The blueberries are finished and the bears are gone. They had seen bears as they toured around BC this past month, but we disappointed here.
We did have a nice walk and climb up the hill. I was already starting to get a cold then, and the the short hike up the steep hill almost killed me! But the view was worth it. It amazes me how we can walk along a flat field and then all of a sudden there is a wall of rock. no gradual elevation just "BANG!! here's the mountain!"
The day started off quite overcast, but I noticed a little blue space between the clouds as we were driving there. I said "See that little patch of blue? It's going to magically expand and turn into a gorgeous sunny day" Sure enough, the clouds started rolling away. How's that for the power of positive thinking? If only I could wish this cold away so easily! I love how we get these black clouds on our mountains. Scenes like this remind me of Maui. Less the palm trees.
We found Deanna's little red bridge.
She has posted photos of this little bridge often on her blog and I never knew where it was. It was by the Minnekhada Lodge on the hill. Its gorgeous up there. We got to meet Vern the groundskeeper, who was a super nice guy. When he heard our English accents, he burst out into a fine rendition of Rule Britannia!
And for all you nice folks who have been asking about Kayla...
She is home again now and feeling much better.
She goes in for her results Monday.
Keeping everything crossed for good news on the lung biopsies.
