In the morning we went for a little walk around town to stretch our legs and let it get a little warmer.
The next morning we toured around Gibsons and had scones as suggested by a local and found Molly's Reach from the old show "Beachcombers."
June 17 - Friday
After a short visit we headed down the island to check out sights along the way.
|It's great that we get to see each other a little more.|
|Carol's beautiful garden and ocean view.|
|It's nice that my sister owns a beach house!|
Along the way we saw some deer and a bear and a few eagles.
June 18th - Saturday
Ron and I took a walk around downtown Victoria and enjoyed the beautiful flowers and buildings along the way. The weather wasn't sounding too promising but we decided to get on the ferry to go to Port Angeles, WA and hope for the best.
|Notice the heavy clouds...and there was a lot of thunder rumbling.|
June 19th - Sunday - We went to a church in Olympia and drove around to see the capitol building.
We drove to Wenatchee, WA and stayed the night. This was our only day of the trip that we didn't have any rain! We drove 356 km.
June 20th - Monday - only a few sprinkles on the bike just when we were getting ready to leave and then it got hot. We drove through prairie landscape again but nice windy roads. We crossed the border and stayed in Rossland, B.C. We drove 500 km.
June 21st - Tuesday - We drove north towards Revelstoke over great roads and saw more beautiful scenery.
We continued along the mountains, driving in and out of rain.
