Day 14 – Wednesday 21st September 2011

Our last full day and we left Kamloops with heavy hearts to drive to Whistler, our last hotel for this trip.

The drive reminded us of our first days which seemed more than 2 weeks ago now. We have adjusted to Canadian time, Canadian driving and the Canadian lifestyle and tomorrow we return to reality and resume our lives in the UK.

We stopped in Pemberton to use the rest room (toilet) and there was a coach load of English tourists who had just arrived and were obviously still working on UK time looking at the state of them…. The only worrying question was “did we really look that rough two weeks ago?”  These poor tourists looked shattered and as we walked out of the Gas station laughing, we felt like seasoned veterans!

Today has been pretty much travelling and the only time we stopped was to watch some of the salmon on their spawning run.  It’s a strange life being a Salmon, especially if your female!!!

We have had most seasons of weather in the last two weeks and today we have had our first rain during the day. Not just the first rain during the day, but god knows how many millimetres of rain…  Heavy was one way of putting it, but looking at the long range weather forecast it’s now rain, rain and more rain, so we obviously timed our trip absolutely perfectly..  Just imagine it was 30 degrees celcius when we landed and is probably going to be about 12 – 14 degrees celcius when we depart…..

This is our last Canadian blog, the next will be from the UK when we have arrived home and we have been reunited with our two beloved hoolies!  Have to admit that although we will both miss Canada dearly, we both miss our two hairy German Shepherds more…  I suppose the ideal combination would be to have the two hairy hooligans with us over here, although that would mean getting Michka a passport, as Bailey already has one…

Well thank you all for reading our blogs over the past couple of weeks and we both hope that you have enjoyed them and enjoyed some of the photographs that have gone with them.
