What a difference a day makes…

November17

It’s hard to believe that this view yesterday was filled with lush green grass and a brilliant blue sky.

Happy Halloween!

October31

Always a much anticipated event, we had a fun Halloween. The girls each carved two pumpkins all on their own. Thankfully the rain stopped for the trick or treaters. Later that evening, Simon played drums and a DJ set at a local bar.

Salmon trip

October25

We went to the Adams River to see the spawning salmon. Adams River sockeye travel from their spawning grounds to the South Thompson River, then into the Fraser River, and enter the Pacific. From the Strait of Georgia, they spend three years in the open ocean following Arctic currents to Alaska and the Aleutian islands. They then retrace their route back to central BC; with one in four thousand fish completing the round trip of over 4,000 kilometres (2,500 mi). The number of fish returning to spawn go in a 4 year cycle; this was not a big year but we saw about two hundred Chinook salmon and a few sockeye salmon.

The Chinook are huge.

Banner Painting 2016

October23

Well, it’s that time of year again where our little artists create beautiful banners to be put up on our light posts downtown. This year’s theme is “Weather and our Environment”. Emily and Maddie are seasoned pros now; this being their fourth banner. It was a great way to spend the day!
