I flew to Quesnel on Central Mountain Air from Vancouver to visit my daughter, Melinda and her family. I even managed to take her Mom's sewing machine which she wanted desperately. So after a day of relaxation, good food and drink we met granddaughter Andrea the next day and drove to Nazko....the site of a First Nation Reserve and in the heart of an area of soft wood lumber harvesting. This is a remote, backwoods, hunting, fishing and general recreational part of the province. So we took a picnic and followed that up with a visit to a famous.....I'm not kidding......truck stop that specializes in home made pies. What a treat !

Then Melinda and I headed for Williams Lake to see the new film "The Great Gatsby". Driving between Quesnel and Williams Lake is very dangerous at night because there are so many deer and even during the day we saw a huge brown bear at the side of the road. This is cattle and horse country so there are also a great many cows and horses in the fields. The country is green and rolling as well as quite heavily wooded. Anyway we stayed overnight, had a steak dinner and were about the only people in the theatre for the movie.

Tomorrow we are taking great granddaughters Makenzie and Erika to McDonalds for dinner and a swim at the Recreation Centre after which I will catch the evening flight home.

Arrived home last night(May 16th)after a wonderful time with my great granddaughters and a breathtaking flight. Hopefully the pictures I took do both events justice. And I am practising with captions of a sort. The iPad is a little tricky but fun.
