Ladner, where Wayne and Lori’s home is located, is a small suburb of Vancouver and is part of the Municipality of Delta. It began as a fishing village and is named after two Ladner brothers who began large farming and fishing operations in the area in the middle 1800’s.

However, the highlight of today was that we travelled with Lori to Shuswap Lake, where they have their ‘holiday’ house, which reaches right into the waters of the lake. It is a sensational place. Before I rave more about our abode for the next 9 days it must be said that the drive through the cloud and misty covered mountains, the deep valleys, along the many lakes and the powerful, fast flowing Fraser River, brought back many memories of our time in BC in ’86, 32 years ago! The railway line for the Rocky Mountaineer was visible for much of the journey too. More memories. We came from the ‘heat’ of England and in our stop for a coffee and a bite to eat in the town of “Hope”, we sat right beside the Fraser … and … nearly froze! Lori had a good belly laugh. It warmed up pretty quickly
once we left Hope. Wayne rode his motorcycle to the lake.

Lori and Wayne have enjoyed 9 awesome years on the Shuswap. We are going to enjoy the next 9 days here. The ‘planned’ outdoor activities are right-up-our-alley. We also end our stay in Beautiful British Columbia by staying here for our last 6 days before heading home. Spoilt we are.
