After a rather more raucous night than we intended (featuring raving Sushi at the 'Eatery' and a white themed party - none of which is remotely internet friendly!) we woke up to a crisp, sunny morning in Abbotsford (about an hours drive from Vancouver and home of two of our favourite people) - Perfect for being outdoors - but the groaning noises coming from J's direction suggested that he and Mike might not be feeling so fresh - so we dosed them up with tortilla chips and breakfast burritos before we headed to Cultus Lake water park for a bracing walking and, for the boys, a head clearing dip.
British Colombia remains astonishly beautiful. Our friends assure us it's completely miserable for 75% of the year but we've seen no evidence of it - and are planning our relocation immediately!
The noises that emanated from him as he hit the water persuaded Jon to stay firmly on dry land.
And so we waved a sad farewell to the most beautiful place we've been in a while and flew South before the worst of winter happens here.
