Sunday 29th May 2011…on the road again!!

Had a great sleep and actually woke up to sun!!!!!

Larry was kind enough to finish off caulking my shower and I now know it is done properly and a completely professional job.

Gail cooked another great breakfast and by 11.30am I was on the road…thanks Gail and Larry for all your kindness to me it is like coming home when I see you and you always make me feel so welcome!!!!

I wanted to visit another provincial Park and a waterfall so I drove the 40 km to

hail and thundershowers with the occasional lightening strike!!!!

It was good to get off the mountain pass and back to dry roads and decent weather.

Over the Winter one of the blogs I follow is Wondering Willey

 

I have never met the writer, Bill, but knew he lived close to where I was passing by and I had e mailed him yesterday to see if he was up for a visit and he was and I stopped by to visit with him late afternoon.

Bill is a neat guy who has been RVing Mexico for years but a few years ago his wife got really sick and she is today in a care facility and not in a good way….. but Bill’s family encouraged him to continue wintering down south and he still does.

Even though he is a Canucks fan we had a great visit and it was good to put a face to a fellow blogger!!

I then continued on towards Vancouver and stopped here at the Visitors Centre in Mission for the evening.

We parked beside Bill for several days near Mission, Texas this winter. Yes, a great guy! Perhaps we will all be back in Mexico this year!
