When I knew I was heading to B.C. for the Spring thru Fall I started looking for boondocking spots. Well let me tell you, in Canada, they are pretty much non-existent. One has to be very `creative`.
But I did manage to find one in Mission - never thinking in a million years that I would actually use it. I mean after all – it was MISSION ! That’s really out in the boonies. Or so it was during my ‘Vancouver days’.
You see I lived in downtown Vancouver for about 15 years when I was much, MUCH, younger. We used to go to areas like Mission for our weekend get-a-way camping. It was far, far, away ! LOL
Well I am now into my third week here and LOVING it. Joan may never get rid of me !! Joan and her Family (including the four legged ones) have been so nice to me.
There are lots of areas to explore on the bike and the roads are awesome. And still it is just a short bike ride into Coquitlam to visit my EX-EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT or to Chilliwack to see my friend Marilyn.
The weather also has been amazing. We even had several days in a row that were too hot. Can you even believe that ?? Yes, It was in the mid-high 80`s. Now it`s back to more normal temperatures for early May. It will be like this until Sunday and then the RAIN starts again and the temperatures drop.
This beautiful manicured front lawn is the view from my front door.
And if things here were not already great enough, Bennie has many little Pals to play with. Eegor is his favourite of course, but this little guy comes to visit often. His name is `”Mr.” and he follows Bennie around constantly.
Chores still have to be done and off I go to get my propane tank filled. I’ve only had to do this once before (on the bike) and thankfully there is a gas station that sells propane about 1/4 mile away.
Liking my new computer lots ! Especially the very long battery life. I now can once again enjoy the benefits (mobility) of having a laptop.
I decided to go with the 15`` this time – actually it`s 15.6`` and it`s much lighter. The learning curve was pretty much nil because I also decided to stay with Windows 7 instead of Windows 8. All the reviews I read on Windows 8 were not good.
Getting my files transferred over posed somewhat of a challenge but I managed to get it done.
This is the back of the property just as the Sun was going down.
