Last days at Peace Arch RV Park

We are coming to the end of our stay at the Peace Arch RV Park in South Surrey. The past 2 weeks have been quieter with most of the stuff I needed to get in place for my Dad sorted out so we have been able to just visit Dad instead of me running here and there. Betty's Celebration of Life will be on Friday, where we will get to see all of her family and mine for several hours. It is sad that you see more of your family and friends at weddings or funerals and not the rest of the year but I am looking forward to seeing everyone.

Last Wednesday we went to the island bright and early, the 5:15 ferry, for the day so Ray could see his doctor regarding pain medication.  We also stopped at our storage locker in Parksville to get out our First Up Tent and return some other things not needed anymore. Then it was off to Ryan and Paul's to pick up the mail and a fire poker.  What a treat when we got there, as coffee and fresh baked cookies were waiting for us!  Thanks guys!  Freya spent the day at Dad's with Larny, Dad's caregiver, who loves her and is always asking to take care of her. I think we will have to check the motorhome when we leave to make sure that Freya is with us!

We managed to get out last Sunday with our good friends Steve and Dianne Colibaba and introduced them to Dim Sum at the Empire Garden Restaurant in Walnut Grove. What a great meal ... we were all stuffed for the day. It turned out to be their anniversary which made it even better!

Fortunately Ray was able to eat as he had been feeling pretty tough the past 3 days due to trying some new pain medication.  He decided he had to stop these and go back to what he had been previously taking.

Sunday we start our summer trip to the Kootenays. Yeah! 3 more sleeps.


  1. Glad things are finally settled for you and you will be able to hit the road again. Safe travels!

  2. I bet it will be good to get your wheels rolling again. Enjoy Kootenays!
