Part two of a series based on a recent trip to British Columbia in May with my husband.
Our hosts met us at the Abbotsford airport, and drove us to their home in Chilliwack. They showed us a wonderful time, taking us to a new location every day. The five day visit was full of amazing experiences and scenery. The snow-capped mountains, the lush green foliage, and the vividly coloured blooms were a lovely welcome to British Columbia.
At one of our stops we spied this broken carving, which seemed strangely out of place at this location.
And many other interesting sights made these times on the road, travels of discovery.
Stay tuned for more of our visit to this lovely province!
I started my blog on June 24, 2017. It’s been a very interesting endeavour. I thank every reader for visiting, You have made the journey fun! For each like, comment, and follow, you are appreciated more than you could know. Since some of my early posts only had three or four views, I’m reposting one per month that was special to me. Here’s my Memory of the Month for January. (Originally posted on September 22, 2017)
I walked on a hiking trail one lovely summer morning. Several of these rustic benches were situated in spots where the views were particularly serene. Enjoying the beauty of nature is a very satisfying experience, as long as the mosquitoes aren’t biting!
Montreal has a plethora of fine eating places. I was able to try out a few while there for work in October. The restaurant above was in Old Montreal — quaint, with wonderful food, and very accommodating staff. I wish I could remember the name, but unfortunately, it escapes me.
This amazing place is The House of Jazz. There is so much to see here. The chandeliers, the little and big sculptures, the antiques, all the eclectic accessories make the atmosphere really inviting. There is also live music, though I wasn’t able to stay late enough enjoy it. The “Blues Brothers” sit above the windows, and two large “dogs” sit on either side of the entrance. The food is also terrific. I would definitely go here again.
The pictures above are from Les Enfants Terribles. The candlesticks are beautiful, but the view is what makes this place special. From 44 floors up, the city looks amazing!
The last special restaurant I had the opportunity to visit was Labarake. Their pumpkin soup was delicious, and the service was great, as it was in all the restaurants in which I had the privilege of dining.
What can I say about the diverse hues of fall? The splendid display of leaves is a feast for the eyes! Each type of tree has a colour of its own, in shades of gold, red, or orange, and together they present us with a stunning view every year.
