First eversMay 7 in Canada
We were like kids in a chocolate shop, set free to sample the different shapes, sizes, colours and smells… and parents weren’t watching! What freedom! What delight! We will worry about the tooth decay a little later!
Hang on a moment... gotta a bit carried away. But seriously Canada, and the Rockies in particular, was like a chocolate shop extravaganza. So many amazing things, unique things, off-the-scale things… and most of all, ‘first-ever time’ things.
For the first time ever both Sheree and I…
walked upon a frozen lake
came within metres of a grizzly bear in the wild
came within metres to a black bear in the wild
saw our very first hummingbird [small yet magnificent]
drove an RV on the RH side of the road
ate poutine [an eastern Canadian cheese and potato delicacy]
gazing at the tallest mountain in the Rockies [rarely cloudless, ‘xept for us]
seeing the largest river system on the west coast of Canada [Fraser River]
walked to the top of a snow-covered mountain
sat for an hour in a mountain valley… and listened to silence
celebrated the arrival of our fourth grandchild [our Seattle bubba!]
So often it’s not till you stop and think about what’s happened that you realise how special the moments have been. For each of our firsts we are so thankful. And we share them with you… not to boast… but to encourage you to take the blessings in front of you and celebrate your socks off!!
Blessed :)Read more
