Driving Miss Donna - what does this mean? Whenever I want to go somewhere, if Don is home he will usually drive. He always says he is driving miss Donna! This blog is for our travels, usually with our truck and fifth wheel trailer, but sometimes in our Journey. Don retired October 2011 so hopefully the travelling part will increase! When we are not vacationing check in for updates about our life at home and our wonderful family:)

Watching Salmon and Fun Times in Surrey!

We arrived back in Jasper on Tuesday afternoon and went in to town for a light supper and a walk.  Wednesday morning we were up bright and early hoping to camp at North Thompson campground in Clearwater.  The trip there is so majestic, I inserted a photo of Mount Robson.

We found a beautiful site right on the river and set up.  #26 for $21 (just for me as I forget by the time I get home where we stay).

This is a beautiful part of BC to stay in.  One of the attractions for us is being able to go and watch the salmon trying to swim upstream at Baileys Chute.  I’ve shown a few sample photos of this, simply amazing!  On Thursday morning we were on our way to Stewart’s in Surrey.

What a great time we had.  On Friday we took the sky train and ferry to Lonsdale Quay and shopped and ate a little.  We ordered in Chinese for supper and visited.  Saturday we went to Army & Navy – what a place to shop.  Then we headed to White Rock for a walk along the ocean and of course, eating.  We seem to have our favourite bar there, and as always was fabulous.  That evening we met Rick and Deb at a Greek restaurant and enjoyed a lovely supper.

Sunday we lounged around and in the early afternoon went to Uncle Ed and Auntie Ethel’s for supper.  I was hoping for turkey and she didn’t let us down!  It was really good to see them and know they are still healthy and happy.

We had a great visit with Stew, all his kids and precious grandchildren, and were so happy to meet Susan, his girlfriend.  Susan is soooo nice – good choice Stew!  Stew is such a great host.

We left Stew’s bright an dearly today and are headed to Seattle for a few days, hoping to visit Pike Place Market.

Till the next time…
