Williams Lake to Prince George, BC, 150 miles, May 25, 2010

We drive today was broken up by a stop about half way here in Quesnel.  They are known for their  23 painted fire hydrants.



Here are just a couple of them.  Very unique!!




Also toured the Quesnel & District Museum and Archives.  I always try to spot at least one new item in a museum that I have not seen before.  It was very easy here.  Below on the left two medicine dispensers (probably 1 t and 1 T) and on the right a bell and candle used in the local hospital-the V shape behind the candle is a crutch.











This is a Green Onion Holder with salt container in the middle.  Circa 1890.



This is especially for our grandson Zach, he loves anything about the Titanic.029


The above brushes and mirror were in the possessions of a Helene Baxter Douglas, she was on the Titanic with her Mother.  The two women were rescued by the Carpathia and these items were saved. 





 142 Here I am next to the bucket of an authentic steam shovel manufactured by the Vulcan Iron Works Co, Toledo, Ohio (probably around 1882).141


Enjoying the view of the Fraser River in Quesnel.




Our drive from Quesnel to Prince George had it share of road construction.  This power shovel was tearing up the pavement right along the white line as we passed by.  I was very glad he was highly trained and very accurate!

Here we are tonight right along side another HR Endeavor and a few other RV’ers at the Treasure Cove Casino.
