Kamloops, here we come…
Hi, it’s Giaan again. Thanks very much for commenting on the blog, everyone.

After a looooong drive from Jasper, we finally arrived at our friends’ house. Our friends’ names are Barb and Brian. They are veeerry nice people with a beautiful house on the river. On the 1st day, Brian, Mum and Angus went on a 2 hour hike while Barb and I made chocolate chip cookies. Yummo! Later, all of us except Brian and Angus went looking for my Halloween costume but were unsuccessful. The next day, we discovered COSCO – a wonderland of food sold in bulk only and everything but the kitchen sink (actually, I think they might have a sink in there somewhere). While we were 8n town, we finally did get our Halloween costumes. Angus is going as the killer from Scream and I decided to be a witch Hee Hee Hee!

Thursday was a beautiful day so Brian drove us all up to Isabel Lake. It was stunning. We’d brought a picnic and some hot dogs to cook over a fire. Yummmy! While Barb, Brian, Mum and Angus walked around the lake, Dad and I organised the fire. The picnic was delicious and eating in front of the lake topped it off for me.

On Saturday, we went horse riding with our friends from the cruise. Yee Haa, cowgirl!! I rode Dori, a look chestnut brown horse, while Angus rode Sonny, a chocolate brown horse. Isabelle rode Sparky, Anna rode Juny and Claire helped everyone by leading the horses when they got restless. I learned how to walk, trot and canter my horse. It was great fun. They have a beautiful spot up in the hills where they are building their house. It’s going to look wonderful when it’s finished.

Later in the afternoon, Barb and Brian had friends and family over for dinner. Angus and I looked after Kirsten (5) and Peter (2) for their parents. They were really sweet kids and behaved very well.

The next day we left and can’t wait until Halloween because we’ll back in Kamloops.
I’ll write next from Vancouver Island. Hope everyone is well.
