Kimberley, B.C.

On Aug 2 we continue on through the spectacular scenery. Pat has phoned Bryan that we are on our way. We follow the #3 and then 95A to Kimberley. Bryan drives us around the area and we have dinner at a Bavarian restuarant. Everything in the town is trying to be Bavarian. The mine shut down 10 years ago and they are looking for tourist traffic in skiing, fishing, trekking, etc. Joan has gone visiting for a couple of days, so we do not get to meet her. They have a lovey home. Bryan has redone all the floors, walls, ceilings and is now working on his boat. He does very very good work. It seems quite a few of the people in our age group are renovating at this time. The general attitude seems to be to get the big ticket items paid for now and be considering downsizing in 10 to 20 years. Don and Debbie have, in fact, bought their retirement home out in a smaller community and will be looking to sell their home in the city in a few months when he is finished working.

At home I am reading The Kite Runner. I am half finished it already. A very good book.
