A Canadian Adventure - Day 57

Going Home, and a Party Invitation

Yesterday's posting was late and hurried after a long day and a lovely evening with Shak and the Pharmacists. At least one picture, of the flowers in Kelowna, was out of order. Sorry about that.

Today is a leisurely one, breakfasting, packing the contents of our nine bags into two large ones and two carry on bags. Shak's friend Paul will be the grateful recipient of our unused bear spray and various other surplus camping items. Then we will be brunching at the Cactus Club, returning Charlie to its owners for a wash and brush up after his 5600 kilometres under our tutelage, and catching an early evening flight home via Heathrow.

Then it's back to some sort of routine at home, starting with Saturday's parkrun at Wythenshawe, where Sue may get a personal best and will have to wait for me as I'll be finishing last.

'Postcard from Timperley' has an important announcement about an event taking place on Sunday:

"You are hereby invited to my Tenth Birthday Party which will take place at Timperley Towers between 10 am and noon on Sunday 1 October 2017. There will be cake and refreshments. I do hope to see you on this auspicious occasion."

Today's picture is a flashback to Lake O'Hara. There will be more 'summary' and indexing entries in due course. We have quite a lot of photos to sort through, despite the smoke.

Safe journey home! I have enjoyed the photos and posts in between travels of my own. Look forward to hearing more...
Tenth birthday? What's that all about?

Nightbird said...

..... Richard reckons it's the birthday of the blog?

Phreerunner said...

Yes, it is the blog's tenth birthday. It hopes you can attend...

Nightbird said...

Tell it to save us a place :-)

Clan Roberts would be delighted to celebrate your decade!

I did a thoroughly poor job of commenting as you went along on this trip, but I was reading and enjoying.

We're heading back out to Europe today, so any comments I make over the coming weeks will likely arrive in duplicate (sigh!).

No problem Gayle, I'll try to send my comments from non-duplicating technology. Meanwhile it'll be no problem getting rid of your duplicating items as we will be at home for a while.

Have a great time in Europe. ..
