Yesterday was another sunny, hot, windless day. It seemed a shame to not do something when looking outside and seeing it looking so great. Opening the door convinced us otherwise. As I said previously the only hikes I had left were very exposed. We took the day off and stayed in the RV.
I did however get in wading (I can’t swim).
The water by the shoreline was still covered in pollen but after you got out about 5 feet out it mostly cleared up.
Our RV is in the background, below.
I took our waterproof camera.
Some fish came to investigate.
No wind and flat calm.
This guy had his own inflatable kayak.
He went over to the other side to explore.
Just to prove that I did get in. The water was very warm so it was easy. This is certainly the earliest I have been in the water in Canada.
Today we did one of our longer moves of this summer, to the Wild Rose RV Park in Hope.
Some pictures to remind me what we drove through.
Along a wide valley on the Coquihalla Highway.
We climbed two passes, one to 1400 m and another to around 1200 m going down to around 800 m in between. In Hope we are at about 200 m.
Finally some big snowy mountains.
The campground is a long narrow strip with some high mountains right behind us.
Unfortunately, it is situated right between the Trans Canada Highway and a busy rail line. I think we are going to need ear plugs.
Looking across the road from the campground entrance. So far this afternoon, there seems to be a train every 20 minutes or so. I hope it calms down at night.
Behind us is a long ribbon falls working its way down the mountain side. I think there is a short hike to it.
They do have a great garden of rhododendrons and azaleas. I love flower pictures.
Another train whizzes by in the background.
We are here for 5 nights.
