I am excited, tomorrow we are leaving on vacation. It is a trip I have wanted to take for a very long time. i love the Rocky Mountains on the West coast of Canada. The mountains are just awe-inspiring, humbling and enough to take your breath away with the sheer beauty of what is to be seen. We are going to drive, taking our time as we go. If we see something interesting along the way we will stop and check it out. When feeling tired will find a motel and just stop.
I have a lot of family, cousins in Alberta and will be visiting with them for a few days. unless we out wear our welcome before that. I received a very pleasant surprise last evening. My dear Aunt Isabel, cousin Carol with hubby Garry will also be making the long drive so we can all hock up in Red Deere. I can only imagine the crib boards will be out and cards flying all over the place.
From there it will be a nice relaxed drive though those beautiful mountains. I am going to enjoy every moment of it, taking in every breath-taking view. We will end up in Victoria BC spending some wonderful time with Vi’s children and grand kids. Then back to Vancouver were I will get to see my two little princesses. Billie and Rob I am looking forward to seeing you also. Then the drive home.
This trip was in my bucket list when I first filled it and I did make that trip years ago. I am blessed to have been given enough time to do it again.
I want to make firm mental images in my mind of all the wonders I will be seeing. It is different looking at something knowing you will very likely never see it again. You want to treasure the moment and hang on to it.
So, I will be gone for 3 weeks and enjoying every moment of it. Vi is a little nervous about it all. The fear of something happening while we are out on the highway possibly miles from a hospital. I am confident this won’t even be an issue. This trip really is important to me, something I really want to do.
While we are gone, I am going to put it all out of my mind but when we get back I will be doing some heavy thinking. I am starting to think it may be time to shut down the blog. Ah, we will see.
