Nelson and the Flagpole

I had a list of chores for Nelson – and completed them! Yay!

But, since I had to go all the way to Nelson, I figured I might as well make it fun too. So I packed a lunch, put Abby in the back of the car and headed off with my backpack. By 11 a.m. my chores were complete, items on the list ticked off, and we drove to the parking lot for Pulpit Rock. The rain was done. The day was sunny. The sky was blue. The air was warm.

Abby thought it was too hot but, like the reluctant trooper that she is, she kept plodding after me. Yes, she almost rebelled twice when we met people with dogs who were just hanging out. She thought that “hanging out” was the way to go.

But we went to the top. We met Dave and Don coming down. They’d attempted to go past the flagpole but found a forest of trees down – impassable. Not a surprise.

At the top we sat and had lunch – Abby’s favourite part of the day and clearly the only purpose for having done all this work.

Love sitting at my desk in my newly furnished office – love the sun pouring in through the skylight. Excited about gardening tomorrow.

And my head is plotting hikes for next week.

Simon is utterly done after doing cement and step work at Sheila’s place and weeding here with a pickaxe (yeah – we have badass weeds!). Thinking – he’s going to be very happy about the cold ciders I bought today on the way home.

He deserves them.

(he just discovered the ciders – pear – his favourites – I am a hero!)

  1. Cranbrook gets los of sunshine. I think it is the sunniest place in BC.

    “Cranbrook gets 2,191 hours of sunshine each year, ahead of Victoria which gets 2,109 hours. “Victoria is very high because they are in a rain shadow from the Olympics,” Doug explained. Fort St. John gets 2,095 hours; close behind are Princeton at 2,087 hours and Kamloops at 2,080 hours. So there you have it.Sep 30, 2013
