Canadian Rockies

 Just a bunch of Canada beauty.  They are celebrating their 150th anniversary, doncha know. 

 Come on, people, don't I deserve a whole city?  At least a village, but, okay, let's  start with a street. 
 And a plaza. 

There is always a party, this time at our RV site in Jasper  National Park.  
Teri, Julie, Al, Robert, Willie.

 Then we got visitors.

Like good Canadians, most of them waited until we had tidied up our space.  The most I saw in one spot was nine, but there seemed to be dozens, wandering freely all around the park, apparently not bothered one little bit by all the people.  Food will do that.

A little update

We're now all the way to Banff but I'll be showing you the journey later when I have a stronger connection.  To tide you over, here is proof that Al is Al at every Costco in the world.

North again

We hauled Homer to the SEA airport to pick up Teri and Willie.  That's an interesting experience.  Have you ever seen RV parking at Arrivals?  
Lunch in Everson - doesn't it look like the entire city was waiting for us and saved a huge parking space right in front of City Hall?  Obviously they know who we are.

Back to Canada, but this time the border crossing was easy.  The officer even complimented Al on knowing the routine so well.  Thank you.

There are 126 wild fires burning in British Columbia.  126!  With heavy smoke everywhere, even in Sequim.  finally, just before Kamloops, it cleared, but the people tell us it's the first time in a month, so our timing is good.

It was amazing to see just where the smoke gave way to clear blue skies.  Yes, that is the sun, working so hard to cast a few rays.

Art E. Choke

 It's almost like being in Castroville for the first harvest. They were so big and fresh and tender. 
 How often do you get to scrape your teeth across a thistle that was plucked off the stalk less than an hour ago?  And who was the first fella who thought it would be a good idea to eat this? 

Be sure to admire my blue jean valance in the background.  

Laying pipe -  if you know what I mean. (And I think you do.)

Al truly is amazed by the various cultural options available to us in Sequim. 
 This is how he enjoys Tuesday night music in the park.
