Where I stayed
Rolley Lake Provincial Park
Normally the trip from Banff would have taken about 10 hours I think but Allison wanted to stop and get a picture in Hedley, BC since the band of the same name is one of her favourites. That took us about 2 hours out of the way but hey, we're on vacation! After lunch, I was feeling really tired so Allison drove from Kelowna to Hedley. She has been a real life saver (literally) on this trip! I think I was a bit optimistic about my driving stamina. At Hedley we got the photo and I took over.
By the time we got in to Abbotsford it was around 10:30
The next day Randy showed up and pitched his tent on our site. We drove in to town for groceries and had lunch at Fatburger. The plan was to go to the Capillano suspension bridge but that was going to cost over $100 for me and the girls and that just wasn't in our budget so instead we had a fantastic afternoon at Stanley Park walking along the Seawall.
We finally were able to have a camp fire so it was dogs and smores over the fire for supper.
Day 3 in BC was spent at Granville Island where they had a Kid's market that appealed to Melissa AND the other girls. They even had kid sized doors to walk through. Dinner was fresh prawns and steak on the grill.
3 days is not nearly enough on mainland BC!
