Today I started the day with a swim in the lake-BRR! I could only stay in for a little bit because it was so cold! We had some oatmeal for breakfast (Mom fired up the camp stove again). Once we packed up the tent, we started out but not before we said goodbye to a cute puppy Mom and I met yesterday. She is an Australian Shepherd and so cute and soft with blue eyes. Her Mom calls her "See-Sue" which is probably a French name that I mispelled. See-Sue was so happy to have visitors and we didn't want to say goodbye! Somehow, we forgot to take picture.

So after some more driving we stopped in Hazelton at a First Nations (that is the term that Canadians use instead of Native Americans) village and got to see inside their long houses. There is a lot to learn and we took a guided tour of 3 of the houses. There was some interesting art and totem poles. In the gift shop I got a totem stone. It has an elk on it and is a symbol of strength and independence.

After even more driving we got to Terrace, British Columbia. At first we booked a motel on the way there that turned out to be disgusting. Mom said it looked like a place where criminals would hide. One clue that it was on its way out was there was a "motel for sale "sign outside. We asked to look at the room first and then decided to look for something else. As we drove away I noticed a random lady staring at me through her hotel window. Icky.

We ended up staying at a place called Inn of the West which is very nice. We had a hotel room with a clean bathroom, a good TV and a mini fridge. We ate dinner at a Pizza Hut, which Mom and Dad thought would be only so-so, but turned out good!

I have never been to Hazleton, but Mr. Boundy lived there for about 2 years when he was a kid. His dad was a minister, and that was one of the first churches he worked at. I can't believe all the interesting places you are visiting!

LOVE the description on the creepy disgusting motel. Especially the part about the random lady peering out the window as you drove off. Gave me goose bumps! I wonder if you'll be a writer or reporter when you choose a profession. Love to all.
