We returned just over a week ago from a delightful road trip.
There isn’t a better time of year for a roadtrip than the fall, and certainly no better reason than visiting family!
So with Jim’s seasonal work having fallen away we drove off for the triangle tour to visit the far-flung grands and their parents ( : and assorted aunties ( :
And it was beautiful–the weather for traveling, the trees turning, and our favorite people to get to spend time with…
The first wobbly side of the triangle– 425 miles to Prince George
Segment two of our wobbly-sided triangle–550 miles to Powell River
Home to our newest grand one–JAXON! who has just turned 5 months old, and has already had two hair cuts!
The weather in Powell River was stunningly unseasonable for October; we even got out for three tandem rides, including the daunting rigors of Wildwood Hill.
And it was a great treat to get to spend (Canadian) Thanksgiving with all three of our girls, and their men…
And to take a walk all together to one of my favorite destinations–well, that was just delicious soul food!
The final leg of the triangle home
This stint was the longest; 645 miles plus ferry waits, which thankfully were minimal (whew!), makes for a long day.
But it was oh so worth it!
And the hillsides were painted in fiery reds and oranges, more stunning than I recall ever seeing them! But then again, that’s one of the perks of old age, isn’t it?–you forget things and get to experience the wonder all over again!
God has made everything beautiful in its time.
