Sunday, now this is what I thought Canada would look like.

We ate last night in a motel near the B & B, which was absolutely fine. This morning dawned cloudy and raining but boy do they need it, so you can’t be upset. First the inside of the bedroom; we haven’t asked what the fish is for! But their mail boxes are no where near as fascinating as those in New Zealand.

So off then to Wells Gray Provincial Park. Park! It’s the size of a small country; 1.3 million acres.


So many lakes, rivers, waterfalls; we are having a proper guided tour tomorrow. So we just toddled about today, hoping to catch photographically a jumping salmon; failed but another chance tomorrow. BUT we saw our first bear, didn’t capture it on film either but it slowly sauntered across the road in front of us. Next time.

Had lunch in a tiny little cafe right at the end of the road. And watched some canoe folk going about their business.

Back to the B & B, really lovely people and an excellent breakfast this morning. The water lilies are stunning and Mary was soon in her element when we got back.

Tomorrow they tell us the sun should shine for our proper all day guided tour round the park. Bring it on because this is proper Canada.

Malcolm and Mary

Malcolm worked for LWT. Mary worked for TRL. They live near Camberley in Surrey and did achieve their life long ambition to visit New Zealand. They have two daughters Laura and Hannah and two grandchildren Zach & Safi. Having done the big trip they then went to Canada, which was amazing. Scroll down it’s all here. They have visited Venice that they both so fell in love with in 2009 again. And recently returned to Lefkada for one week in glorious sunshine. Where next? Well, Canada is calling again in 2019; this time including Alaska. So stay tuned if you enjoy the ups and downs of travelling.
