An Inuit Inukshuk on top of Mt. Whistler, Canada

I took a trip up to Canada, taking the Amtrak Cascades line, for a weekend (leaving Monday evening). I flew into Whistler on a seaplane and took the Rocky Mountaineer back to Vancouver.

Elroy on the stairs

It was great to see this little fellow. He’s such a sun dog, and soaked up the rays every chance he got. He spent long days on the driveway, lying in the rays that Seattle only seems to emanate in summer. Even if it was a little overcast, he’d stay on the verandah. Unusual for him, as he certainly likes the sun, but he likes his comfort more!

Between Yakima and Kennewick, Washington State

We visited Dave’s uncle in South-Eastern (? – central? ) Washington State. Strikingly different landscape to the North-West. Beautiful weather and scenery.

The motor would not start. We’d pulled into a MacDonald’s just on the outskirts of Zilla – a fair way from the next big town, Yakima. We needed a tow back to that town, then Dave’s uncle came all the way from Kennewick (a fair drive) and picked us up. It was the starter motor. We were back on the road the following day.

Elroy couldn't fix the starter motor, but he made sure that we got to where we needed to be

The best little navigator out! No need to fear while he was on the look out.

Kennewick Sunset

The bridge in the distance really was quite prominent. Not in this photo, though. The i-phone is not good at definition, especially when dusk falls. That’s the Columbia River, by the way.

Seattle from the Gas Works Park

Dave and I went here because I hadn’t visited it yet. The weather was great, too. He’d bought a kite in Tofino, Vancouver Island (Canada – pictures in another post), and we were hoping that the wind was up. It wasn’t, but other hopefuls were out. In the Zilla carpark, though, while waiting for the tow, the wind was blowing a gale and Dave had some kite-flying fun.

People Floating on the Horizon

Dave, and Elroy and people walking along the highest point in Gas Works Park. Elroy and I had just returned from a walk around. Dave had given up on the kite.
