Day 57: Sat., Aug 8: Cranbrook to Grand Forks, BC

I cain't believe it! I finally met up with my own Big Daddy (mind you, he kept me waiting for 2 hours in Grand Forks -- what's new, eh?)

Had a fab ride from Cranbrook -- not much traffic, be-oot-iful weather -- what more could yah ask for???

We've just got back from a great dinner at a local pub -- be sure to visit the Station Pub here if yah get the chance -- excellent food and good beer as well as friendly quick service.

It was within walking distance of our very reasonably priced motel 'Western Traveller' and so lovely on the walk back - dusk, the hills looked purpley-grey and a fragrant breeze -- thinkin' this might be nice retirement country???

Off tah bed now folks, for the final leg home -- escorted, no less by the Big Daddy!

Finally you are back home safe and sound with big daddy!!!! Glad you fulfilled this part of a dream, and that we got to meet you. Maybe someday we will meet up with you and big daddy in your neck of the woods, but until then come back for a visit anytime !!!

One more day of riding and this one with your own DH (Big Daddy), instead of friends. What a lovely way to end this cross Canada adventure, a good meal, a stroll in the evening through beautiful Cranbrook with your sweetheart, and thoughts of being home tomorrow.

I hope your last day of this adventure is wonderful and care-free. I'll miss following your daily posts but plan on staying in touch. You are welcome back here with us ANY time.. and bring along Big Daddy. I think my John would just get along with him right famous.

I would have 2 reasons to go that way one is friends in Midway and you! James is home and he said to make sure that I extend the welcome mat out to you and Big Daddy anytime!
