 So I decided that the week had enough stress so we thought that we should take off for the day :)
 The weather man lies and we started off with this :D
  


 This is Kilby lake, Pulled in here for a bit.
  


 This is a pic on the way, really nice going through the valley where the memories of farming come back to me :)
 


 This trip was a bit of a short one for us, just over 400 km. On the way there's many of these on the way up.
  


 After Kilby we went to Harrison Hot Springs, my brother is getting married there in August :) I'm pretty sure that this is glacier water as the colour is blue and green.
  




 I think it was 1875 that this guy was in his canoe and stumbled along this hot spring and he turned it in to a spa. The spa burnt down a few years later and it was never rebuilt.
 The hot water is piped under the lake now and is used for a therapeutic spa for like them rich people :D
 Here are the pics of the captured hot springs.
  




 This is my other wife, she knows directions 8) 8) 8)
  


 The eagles along the way really helps take me away from it all...............
  


 This is on the other side of Harrison Lake.
  


 We stopped at Vedder River on the the way to kick back and stretch our legs.
  


 It's been a very long week and it sure was nice to have a day to myself with no customers in my ear 8) 8)

Really nice pics, certainly a nice back drop to the lake, I would like to get out on it in my canoe.

  As we woke up to a wonderful sunny morning we thought we would go to the U.B.C Forestry Research Center 8) When we got there we were told at the gate that there's no dogs or mountain bikes allowed :o Like what a joke, can a dog do damage to waterfalls and designated trails for walking on ::) ::)
  So we headed out down to here :)
   


 This park is huge, great big lake all the way along it :)
   


  I go sailing here lots, it's a very big lake and there's always a perfect wind :)
  Here's our dog Willow :) Looks like he just woke up :)
   


   We rescued him, he was abused and so frightened of every noise and I wish that.........no that would be bad to think those things about people that take their frustrations out on those that don't have a voice.......
  K like he can't go through a doorway unless he's on a leash, don't know what that's all about but I'm sure he will figure it out :)
 He loves to swim, after a few months of being with us he comes when called and does very well on car rides :)
 Can you say fetch :D
 


  And swim for that stick 8)
 


 This is Gold River in the park.
   






 And here's the pooch in the river. It was funny as he's no idea what a current's all about but he found out today that it dragged him down river for a bit till he figured out that swimming to shore works great :D 8)
 




  On the way back there's a lake that has no name, it's a cool place to just relax.
 We saw these geese with their little family :) :)
