A visit to the old home town

On Monday we drove back to Salmon Arm for a 2 day visit.

We stayed with our good friends in Sunnybrae,
about 20 minutes west of Salmon Arm.

It was wonderful to share time with them again.
We really appreciated their generosity and the delicious meals!

Meg, one of their daughters, was home for a visit
so we all gathered for games and laughter in the evening.

Octava, my writing group, met for lunch
and reminisced about our many gatherings.

Later in the afternoon I met with Karen, a very good friend,
for a coffee chat visit that was too short!
Next time we will definitely have to stay longer.

Over breakfast on our last day we joined our daughter Megan
for a breakfast catch-up on her life in Sicamous.

It wasn't long enough but it felt okay for the first return visit to our home town. 

Today we moved from my sister's home in Surrey to the "communal garret"in Vancouver's West End.
My sister and brother-in-law have been amazing...we are eternally grateful to them for welcoming us into their home for the past two weeks. It has been almost 7 months of travel along with suitcases and a variety of beds since we sold our house. We are looking forward to making this apartment our home for the summer with walks to the beach and time to reflect on our choices. How long will we be comfortable with this gypsy life?
