Visiting Quesnel for my daughter Melinda's sixtieth birthday

A flight from Vancouver over and through the mountains to the relatively remote and former gold mining hub of Quesnel in northern British Columbia.

overcast 5 °C

My granddaughter Andrea told me she was planning a special birthday for her Mom so I said I would love to come to Quesnel for the event.


This picture shows the approach to Quesnel at the confluence of the Quesnel and Mighty Fraser rivers.

On my arrival we went to Andrea's where she had prepared a birthday lunch....tacos, apple crumble, candles, champagne and "Effie's Cookies" sent by my friend Susan. Then we went to "The Quesnel Escape Room" where, following clues the seven of us, with some coaching managed to escape. What Fun!


On finally getting to Melinda and Wayne's place on Dragon Lake I snapped a few pictures of their newly expanded living room, the bed with two of my Grandmother Ida Williamson's hand stitched quilts, the deck and a still frozen lake


And the following day Melinda and I had a great walk along the river ending up at the Cariboo Hotel which faces the Fraser River for a cowboy lunch of a Cariboo Burger and Barkerville Beer.



So,with lots of laughs, some reminiscing and good conversation Melinda, Wayne and I concluded our usual very happy, contented visit.
