(I can't believe it - this is two posts in a row where Blogger hasn't hidden my update)
It was still early August as we followed a course from Vancouver Island across central British Columbia, following the Fraser river. It was still very warm at around 33C (91F).
It sounded like a good time to head for the lake! Around this time, I got a call from a potential employer, wanting to know if I was still interested in a fire warden job in BC. I was interested, but more interested in spending some time at the lake - and out of internet! A friend has a waterfront cabin up on Seymour Arm on Shuswap lake, so that's where we headed. Covid protocols were in place, but we still managed to get caught up on the last few years, and we got to spend some time enjoying the water.Houseboats are very popular on this lake.
We even visited this floating store!
Home again for a while, Hailey went to the local vet clinic for an injection. By giving her a mild tranquilizer at home first, no one got injured in this attempt! Although it was now late August, most of the swallows nesting under the house eaves had started to depart, and a few flocks of Sandhill Cranes were seen practicing their formation flying.
It was fairly close to the road, and another camper did pull in nearby later in the evening.
New riverbanks for Hailey to check out ...

So, of course there was no choice but to move in and stay a few days!
