This family sure can sleep! I awoke about an hour ago to a heavy frost and the camper was pretty nippy!! I plugged in the ol furnace, and it has been running constantly since. It’s warm but not cozy. We may actually find we have a temperature limit in this Poppy (maybe 15 degrees). It’s not a problem of comfort at night—we are all cozy in down bags and flannel sheets and polar fleece blankets. It’s just the getting up that is hard!!!
We are on a gorgeous lake with loons and a kennel full of Husky sled dogs. Our campsite is on a grassy bank a few feet above the lake. There are trails everywhere for mountain biking and it begs a week at least. But…..even better things will happen today…Mom and Dad are flying into Vancouver! Yay. We will return here I am sure…It’s called Fir Crest Resort. Just North of Lac la Hache on Highway 97. It’s about 4 to 5 hours from Vancouver.
We are all a bit sick….it never fails that the kids get colds right before a visit with their grandparents. I think it was that bus on Denali. We’ve been very healthy til then. Or maybe it was 3 days on the ferry. Anyway….time for sourdough pancakes. Did I mention that sourdough starter we keep in a ceramic urn in our sink? A woman in Whitehorse gave it to us and we’ve been feeding it and making outrageous sourdough pancakes every morning or so. Hmmm…could be our eating habits!
