Dawson Creek, BC, Day 2, May 29, 2010

This morning at 10 am Dave and Jody who live here in Dawson Creek were to come to our RV, pick us up and give us a tour of their town. In 2008 on a Rick Steves tour in Harlem, near Amsterdam, is where we first met them. We were on the Best of Europe in 21 days Tour together.

031Stopped at a local Farmers Market, and a Museum at the Visitor Center. This is where we saw this clock, off by 2 seconds, fast.

We then had lunch at this small cafe called Under the Willow, where the menu is written on a large chalkboard. Great food!


Dave was so kind to take our photos at the Mile Marker “0”.

066016 Also stopped at a local butcher shop. Look at this huge roasting chicken, 7.81#.

We then took a drive out of town to see some wind turbines up close and personal.




Standing as close as we were, you could hear the wind sound as the propellers (not sure that is the correct word) turned. They were huge!!

We then stopped at McQueen Slough, saw a little wildlife, Canadian Geese and a muskrat swimming in the water and this beautiful bird (don’t know what it is-Grant or Kathy any ideas). Beautiful day for sightseeing.



We are not done yet, for dinner we attended a delicious BBQ with the car club that Dave and Jody belong to.

021 Everyone is standing beside of Dave’s red Mustang convertible.

These lovely flowers are from Dave and Jody’s flower garden. I am going to title it “Dare to be Different”.

040 We had a great day seeing the Dawson Creek area, thanks Dave and Jody. Tomorrow, another day of exploring at Tumber Ridge and Kinuseo Falls.

I am thinking that looks so nice and warm there...but the weather widget says it's in the 40s. I am hoping it's not that chilly when we are on our way north in 3 weeks!
