This would have been a painful departing, however, knowing that we are returning to this beautiful environment in 3 weeks or so puts the pain on the back-burner for a while.
Lori took us along the ever changing and beautiful scenic route until we joined the main highway to Ladner. One cannot get enough of the magnificence of each scene. The ultimate … we saw a bear … in the wild … sadly no photo.
On reaching Lori’s home we found that Anni Lind and her husband, Brian, were waiting for us as we had organised dinner at a Japanese restaurant in Ladner. Anni was a teaching colleague from Champlain Heights in ’86 and a very close friend of Lori’s. I had had much fun with Anni whilst working and socialising with her in ’86. For the past 8-10 years we have kept in touch so that tonight we took off where we had left off and shared many a story and laughs.
It had been a long day for all of us but particularly Lori, as she drove us down and was returning tomorrow morning to Shuswap, 450kms away.
