Mother Daughter Camping By The River

On Thursday, we were invited to visit or join my daughter’s friend’s family on their camping trip by the river.

WeContinue reading “Mother Daughter Camping By The River”

Wondrous White Rock, British Columbia

We arrived mid afternoon and cruised most of Marine Drive looking for a vacant parking stall! Once parked, we wandered from the far parking lot along the sandy beach enjoying low tide all the way to the pier.

As we waited for the Ferry,Continue reading “Paradise On the Other Side Of Kootenay Lake- Crawford Bay RV Park”
