Victoria is a wonderful city...with the harbour, fisherman's wharf area and the floating village (you MUST eat at Barb's Fish and Chips when in Victoria!!), and the wonderful downtown core. We couldn't tell anyone that we were home because we got word that Jay's parents were going camping near Revelstoke....a surprise was in the works! After spending some time with Dad in Nanaimo, we rented a car and started on the last leg of our journey....Home. We timed it perfectly. It was supper time when we pulled into the Blanket Creek Campground with only a tent and a couple utility blankets...in hopes that Jay's parents would have the rest of the supplies we would need. Expecting a wonderful campfire dinner to be ready when we arrived, we drove around looking for their site...and around...and around again. Hmm..there's only a few sites, and they are nowhere to be found! We couldn't get cell reception, so we went further down the highway to the next provincial campground...they weren't there either!!! So, here we are...it's now almost 9pm, we only have a tent, and nowhere to stay since Jay's parents were nowhere to be found!! There was only one thing to do...head into Revelstoke for the night!
After a disguised phone call to Jay's sister, we finally got her on side with our plan....only one flaw...she thought they were at the same campground that we thought they were at
We took our time driving home, stopping in Golden to eat at Heather Mountain Lodge, where our adventure first begun...only to find out that they don't serve lunch! haha. We carried on to Canmore and ended up staying in an awesome condo for the night!...Definitely must go back there!
Most of you can probably guess what we did for our First Anniversary on July 31....yup...that's right....the good old Comedy Club! We spent a wonderful evening at the Comic Strip, doing what we do best....laughing
The last couple weeks have been super busy and unorganized! We managed to get our house back on August 1...after two weeks of mooching off of the parents...haha. We've been stuck without phone and internet so far....currently at McDonald's to use the WIFI in order to post our blog~! lol. Both of us lucked out and work came searching for us. We were both suppose to start on August 2, hence the early return...but are now on vacation until August 15...if you can call house renovations and sleeping on the floor in an empty house a vacation...haha. I have my cat back and we are super happy to be home!...and excited for what's to come in the near future! Thanks to everyone for staying in touch with us on our travels. It was great to be able to share them with you... and we look forward to seeing you all soon!
