Well, we made it! We drove right through Montana last Wednesday and Alberta on Thursday to arrive in Marwayne at 5:01pm - just enough time to head out to our new home - a cabin - set within Jubilee Regional Park.
L O T S of snow! A winter wonderland to be sure. We have great pics but they will have to wait.
We don't have wifi there - no internet at all at the moment - so I couldn't post our pictures of the rest of the trip up - hopefully I'll be able to do that at some point but - when - is a mystery. We called the local internet provider but found out that because we are in a bowl - landscape wise - we can't reach a tower. Some research is definitely needed - or $1,300 for a new tower! Yikes!
Following three days of enjoying our new place and being out of the van, Cassia and I flew to Vancouver Island - to Victoria - to visit with my mom and sister. Ahhh - an escape from the cold to very pleasant spring temperatures here on the West Coast.
I've posted about this trip the two of us take each spring and fall a few times - which is good because I can just link them here. When visiting my mom I use a computer in their building and so I am not able to post pictures - just words.
Victoria is a beautiful city and fun to walk the streets downtown. Today, I enjoyed my solo visit there as Cassia and my mom spent the afternoon together. I took a ton of pictures to show you during my visit last April so you can see them there.
So - here is how it is for us here in Victoria our visit from September 2011 - Island Vacation - and from April 2012 - Cassia and I go to Victoria.
I can't say when we'll be back to the blog ......... ahhhh nothing like living out in the middle of not much - but our park is in a very beautiful and tranquil location - it should be a GREAT summer (as long as it is dry and there are hardly any mosquitos!)
We also have a VERY exciting plan for next winter so I'll have to get back to let you in on that!
TODAY'S INTERESTING LINK: Well, that sure isn't very nice of me to leave you hanging - again! Ok - here is a hint on where we are headed next fall - this is one road we definitely plan to take! We're SO excited we want to leave now!
