Yup, It’s SKEETER Season here in Beautiful (but ALWAYS raining) British Columbia.
Of course with me it doesn’t matter if there’s one or a hundred !! They love me !! I have about 10 bites all over my arms and ankles – yes they’ve even bitten me on the ankles through my socks.
These bites turn into welts and lasts for days. I have a product that takes the itch away thankfully.
I can’t imagine being in a forested Provincial Park right now – you definitely would not be able to sit outside at all.
ENTERTAINMENT HERE AT THE PARK
Pretty much every day, and especially on weekends, I see all these hand gliders. One day I saw 7 of them. Now THAT is something I’d LOVE to do.
I haven’t figured out yet where they take off from or where they land but I’m going to try and find out. I’d like to see that.
Also on the weekends the rich Folks go to the SANDPIPER GOLF RESORT (which is right next door to this Park) and take their own private airplanes out for a spin. So I get to see an air show every weekend. This Golf Resort has its own landing strip !!
I haven’t been able to get a pic of that yet. But I got these pics from the Internet. Gorgeous huh !!
One day I took a spin to Harrison Hot Springs. This little Town was a favourite weekend get-a-way spot for us back in ‘da day. But, like everything else, it has changed a lot and is now very ‘Touristy’.
It is still a gorgeous spot but the day I was there it was oh so busy – there was even a Wedding on the Beach.
I decided to head out of Town and towards the SASQUATCH PROVINCIAL PARK. I wanted to see what this Park was like but the Camping areas are 6KMS/4MILES further into the Forest and on a dirt road.
The road was in good condition and I rode in about 3 KMS and then decided to turn around. Too much wiggly wobbly on the bike for this old gal.
I found an awesome day use area (that is also park of the Park) which is described on their website as “a quiet alternative to the main beach and swimming area in town”. I couldn’t agree more !!
I ‘specks Bennie and I will ride out there again packing a lunch and bringing a book to spend a few lazy hours there.
I saw this pic on Facebook. Just had to post it !! OUCH !
