what we have been up to for the past little while...
these beautiful pics were from the first camping/fishing trip with Breann & Dave
with the wet, cool summer we'd been having it was so fantastic to see the sky like this
the two days in july that we decided to hit up a rec site on the kispiox river were wonderfully sunny and warm--and it never really got dark all night...it kind of hit a dark twilight then the sun came back up...
gettin the rods ready to practice casting...
jon got a bite on his third cast...there's Bre goig in with the net
trying to identify the fish (thanks to picture books)
first time out, no fish...
but beer waiting.
Lucy's first camping trip
Lucy out cold after falling in the river and having to be saved by Dave
Lucy loves loves loves puddles, especially those filled with mud....hosing her down was tough, she didn't like it too much, so we came up with what we thought was a brilliant idea...buy a kiddie pool and fill it with shampoo--perfect Lucy sized puddle that'd she'd for sure jump in...
not a chance.
quick trip to Valemount/Mount Robson to meet up with our best pals Gillian and Jordan...(edited: see new post)
came home from Robson to find another warm showers guest awaiting us on the porch...
Greg (from North Carolina) stayed with us for two nights and Salva (from Spain) stayed for one...we had a wonderful evening chatting and feasting!
then we camped and played at the Kispiox Valley Music Festival...super fun!
nascent state playing our friday night show on the side stage
me lugging jon in the cart to lug gear (there may or may not be some alcohol in that camping mug)
we played our main show on saturday evening, but have no photo...so here's a pic of jon at the festival
then we went camping and fishing again...
Lucy on Pentz Lake
me, waking up Lucy by the campfire
Wayne, fishing out our lost spoons (brave soul...the water was frigid!)
Bre, Dave and the trio of pooches
Jon caught a rock
Lucy, crashed out again
and now summer has finally come!
a mellow day at chicken creek
Lucy...tired of us not catching anything...ha!
looking forward to tomorrow...Tom, Sue and Claire should be making it here at the end of the first leg of their cross Canada tour...we have a wonderful week ahead of us, i'm sure...can't wait!
