British Columbia Walkaboo

In August, Daphne Rose and I (Noel "Snowflake" Chompsky) went walkaboo with Jenn and Jim. We had a seven hour drive, and then all spent a week at Jenn's paroonts, where Jenn and Jim had their Wedding Reception.

Here Daphne Rose and I are on the trip down, on the wooden bridge at 108 Mile Ranch. Daphne Rose is wearing her Riding Bonnet, which Leone knitted for her.



The first few days at Jenn's paroonts we prepared food, cleaned, shopped--it was a flurroo of activitoo. Then on Wednesday, lots of people came over to celebroo Jenn and Jim's Wedding Reception.

They had a yummy cake.



And got lots of prezzies.



Daphne Rose and I enjoyed the festivities. Here I am telling the guests a story. Daphne Rose is wearing her Party Bonnet, which Leone knitted for her.



The next day, Jenn and Jim visited the Gray Monk Winery. (Which Jim kept calling the Monastery.) They went on a tour, did a tasting, and then had lunch on the patio overlooking Lake Okanagan.



We had a great time at Jenn's paroonts, and everyone agreed it was a wonderful reception. But eventually, we had to return home. Daphne Rose and I sat in the backseat on the drive back. Daphne Rose is wearing her Journey Home Bonnet, which Leone knitted for her.



On the way back, Jim tried to get a beaver shot.

Why is everyone laughing?



As you can see, Jim missed the beaver shot.

Why does everyone keep laughing?

There's a statue of a beaver holding a beer, and Jim tried to get a photo of it while we drove by. I fail to see what's so funny about a missed beaver shot.

Stop laughing!

Hmmmph!

Anyway, Jim did get a pictoo of Castle Cariboo, which you can see is spelled properly: CaribOO!



And so Daphne Rose and I returned home safe, and the two of us and Jenn and Jim had a great reunion with Leone, the kitties and all the Bears.

OK Bye

Wow Noel! Even though you told me all about your trip when you got home- getting to read about it with so many pictoos was great! Good job!

Looks like fun!

Leone must have been very busy knitting bonnets for Daphne Rose before you left. They're all lovely!

The only place the girl takes us involves cages, and smells funny. You've got a much better deal.

Dear Bears,
Thank you for sharing your trip with us, I think it sounded lovely. I am concerned, however, to see both of you travelling in the car without any seatbelts on. Although I suspect Daphne's bonnets would provide excellent protection in case of an unexpected event.

I love the first picture, with you both on the gate, and the one of Noel telling the story.

Nice post, Bears!

As a health care provider i feel it is imperative to have both the safety riding bonnet and a seatbelt. Whiploosh is a bitch.
