    Great job Lindie.....I've told you before how my daughter loves the west coast....I told her that I wanted to see it and I'd love to do it with her since she's been at least 3 times and knows the spots and the hostels (cheap). She said last night that maybe we could do it in June or July of next year when she's done teaching in Nunavut. I hope so!

    I lived in the lower mainland for over 15 years but only rode that highway twice by Greyhound when I went up to Pembina and Squamish for job interviews. But I grew up in a small town well up the coast amid the mountains. Now I'm landlocked (Alberta) and miss it all Thanks for the memory.

P.S. Have you ever been to the Queen Charlotte Islands? MANY years ago (before yet anothe interview) I got off the ferry and in the am, drove up the coast, had breakfast in Masset, then back to QCC for the interview) It is absolutely stunning! Loved it!

    Hi Friend,

Long time since we have talked. I have been pretty sick, but am on the mend. Don't you love B.C. It is sooo beautiful. I used to spend a lot of time there with my husband. Gross Mt., Capilano, and many many other beautiful areas. We cruised among the Islands under beautiful blue skies, spent time at Lake Louise. I miss all that now.

You did a wonderful job on your first video, I agree. Hope you and your granddaughter had lots of fun. Maybe I will take mine up there by train next summer.

    I JUST WANTED TO ADD THAT THE SEA TO SKY HYWAY IS WHERE THE FOLKS WILL TRAVEL TO GET TO WHISTLER. WE HAD A GREY DAY TODAY, IMMAGINE A SUNNY DAY? THOSE MOUNTIANS, ARE ACTUALLY ISLANDS IN THE INLET - ON THE WAY TO AND NEAR HORSESHOE BAY, I WAS SOO HOPING A FERRY WOULD BE ARRIVING OR LEAVING BUT NO SUCH LUCK. ARENT' THE COLOURS BEAUTIFUL? THE GREEN AND ORANGE AND PURPLE AND GOLD SO BLENDING IN MAKING FALL SUCH A GORGEOUS TIME OF YEAR!

    Lindie, you did an awesome job on your first video blog. Those mountains are beautiful especially when you see the water right there beside them. I love the wonderful fall colors of the trees too. Great job!!!
Blessings and hugs,
Helen
