Prince Rupert, Burns Lake and McLeese Lake, British Columbia

Hi Everyone,

We are making tracks through British Columbia. The trip on the ferry to Prince Rupert was mainly in fog. But, at one point, we saw pods of whales breaching the water. We almost missed the ferry because Jerry thought it left at 7:30 a.m., but it was scheduled to leave at 7:00 a.m. (And here we were debating whether we should first run into town to get a mocha or some coffee before going to the ferry. Had we done that, we would have certainly missed it.)

After getting off of the ferry in Prince Rupert, we spent one night at an RV park in that town. The weather was misty and damp.

Then, on Wednesday (Sept. 16), we drove 300 miles to Burns Lake, BC, and spend one night in that town.

Today (Sept. 17), we drove another 300 miles to McLeese Lake, BC. We are at an RV park right on the lake. Jerry even bought wood and made a nice fire. We ate outside. It is almost a shock to our systems to be back in warmer temperatures again. It was 76 degrees when we got here. See pictures we took along the way and at the lake.
The one thing we were reminded of was that we cannot get Jay Leno in Canada. Even if we try to catch the past episodes on the internet, the computer knows that we are in Canada and the program is blocked. Go figure!

Still aren't using our cell phones, but we have had free wi-fi at each RV park so far.

Next stop will be three days at one of our Coast-to-Coast membership parks, still in British Columbia.

Until next time, have a great weekend, everyone.

Jerry and Mary
