Our first morning in Gateway Park, Lee Creek! We spent the day getting things ready on the lot, putting out toys and decorations. We drove to Chase to pick up some grocery and banking which was closed due to a robbery that happened this past week!!!! We then drove to Sorrento to get my refund on the truck insurance due to being 65. We got $30 back for 3 months.
We came back to our lot and it was time to go to Marcel and Donna’s lot as they were celebrating her birthday. Their family was there and most of the people from the park. It was good to see everyone and catch up to all the news. The party lasted until 8 pm when everyone went home. We were in bed by 10 pm. It was sunny all day but cool from what we were used to.
As a foot note and because I forgot to put it in, here is one more stat; we travelled a total of 15 454 Km or 9 603 miles on this past trip.
We were up early under a sunny sky. We were soon working around the yard; Val did her thing in her garden and I got the car ready to move it in the compound then changed the air filter and fuel filter on the truck. I then worked around the yard getting more things clean and ready to use for our short time here. In the afternoon, Val went to do some tai-Chi with Gail, Donna and another lady. She was gone for over an hour and really enjoyed her time. At 4 pm, we went to Bob & Gail for happy hour then for dinner, I BBQ’ed some pork chops and Val made a delicious salad and green beans.
It rained overnight and all morning, welcome to BC! Actually it is nice to see, smell and hear I have to admit! More chores today! We went to Chase, made an appointment with the bank manager, did the laundry and bottled wine that we had ordered last fall. Right now we just got back from a walk around the Park and enjoy a clear but frisky evening. Tomorrow, we are going in to Salmon arm for more business.
