After we recovered from our long walk we got ready to take Erica to the airport so she could fly off to Calgary to visit her friend. This is her first time flying alone but I think she will be just fine. Tanya took her through into the secure area to make certain she had the correct gate and then left her as she was close to boarding her plane. On the other end she will be picked up by her friend's Mom. I think Erica is going to have loads of fun. Tomorrow it sounds like they will be attending the Calgary Stampede. My little girl is growing up (which is disturbing) but she is getting quite a few experiences in life already. She is such a great kid and I'll miss having her around over this next week.
We are off to Victoria tomorrow.

Hopefully I can get some nice shots of our trip south through the Cariboo and down into the Frazer Canyon.

On Sunday a bunch of us (twelve) headed out to the old homestead on Ootsa Lake where Tanya's grandma Alice did some growing up. It was begun in about 1910 but they were forced to move when Alcan gave them a "fair price" when the lake was flooded for a hydro project. The old house is still standing but his slowly developing a lean, and has been home to foxes and other small animals for years now. The view over the lake is spectacular but the wind blowing off the water is enough to cause the eyes to tear.
Tomorrow we will be heading off to Prince George to visit my family for a few days.
