Road Trip – report 1

Hope – The Blue Moose

My favourite restaurant here was kitty corner to this one but is closed. Note to travellers – even if there is no sign saying “free wifi” it doesn’t hurt to ask. Especially when they do not have an open connection and you need a password to log in. And just becuase there is a line up does not means it is necessarily especially good. In this case it means that there are two bus loads of English lawn bowlers ahead of you. But the Blue Moose is OK even if the bowlers seem to have cleared much of the pre-prepared food.

The skies were overcast with a steady drizzle all the way to Abbotsford, when a thin stream of sun burst through and I got a shot of Mount Baker. My first stop was near Chilliwack where I learned about the drained lake which explains why the interurban route is not as direct as it could be. When it was built it had to go around – not straight across as the freeway does.

I am also beginning to see why people will pay for satellite radio
