We did not have a fire pit so we just sat around and talked and visited until the wee hours...10:00 when everyone turned in.
The next day being Sunday we had breakfast of scrambled eggs and sausages and ham, a truly lovely breakfast. Afew people left and the ones that stayed had a dinner of fried chicken and salads on the last night and door prizes were given out and Abe and Betty handed over the reins to Rick and Irene.
The next morning we were delighted to pack up dry as it kind of looked like rain and then I left for home alone. I hit a few showers at the top of Bonanza and Kootenai Pass and of course there is still snow up there. I did not stop to take a picture of the young bear striding determindely toward the road. I also saw bighorn sheep, elk and deer. When I reached Creston I tried to find Al Holgate but he has been sick and is spending a few months in a home in Kimberley so was unable to connect. When I reached Cranbrook I tried to see John and Dorothy Wetherell but again was unable to locate them so I stayed at the Lazy Bear Lodge and had dinner at Mr Mike's Steak House.
The next morning I headed for home and arrived in a downpour but before the hailstorm that swept through here a little later. Wonderful weekend with friends. Looking forward to my next adventure on the motorcycle. In the meantime I will be with 50 youth at camp. Sure hope the weather improves.
