Heading Home

After leaving the Queen of Alberni, we camped two days at Hazelmere RV Park near White Rock in B.C., Canada. The USA border is very close so the one day we went to Bellingham to do some shopping.

The US border is quite busy. ©

After leaving White Rock we drove via  Osoyoos to Nakusp, where we camped one night at McDonald Creek Provincial Park. © Edit: I believe McDonald Creek now has hot showers. 

“Situated just south of Nakusp, McDonald Creek Park is one of a system of four provincial parks on the Arrow Lake reservoir.” – McDonald Creek Provincial Park.

We found the campground, beautiful, private and very quite. ©

We took the ferry from Galena Bay Across Upper Arrow Lake to Shelter Bay. ©
This beautiful free Ferry ride runs year round.

Apparently people have too much time on their hands waiting for the ferry. ©

    I enjoyed these a lot, but once again they took ages to open. I find that I can get away with under 50 Kb for most, and even 100 is usually overkill. One of yours here is over 600! No problem for a supacomputa and excellent lines, but a bit of a bind for the sort of connection people like myself have..
