Internet access in the wilderness is hard to find. That is my excuse for not keeping this blog up to date. I am sitting in the public library in Williams Lake taking advantage of the free WiFi.
We went to a few local events including Discovery Days at Deer Lake where we enjoyed some canoeing and kayaking.
Deer Lake is a great spot in the middle of the city. The boys are delightful and after many adventures, we had to head out for the next chapter in our roadtrip.
We stayed to watch the giant maple tree in the backyard taken down and on Tuesday headed up the Fraser River.
Soon after Boston Bar we turned onto the Nahatlach Forest Service Road.
On the hillside, just above the bend in the river, stands a couple of benches placed there in memory of Larry Burke. I love the poem on the plaque written by L. Burke.
I could feel his desire for adventure.
“Reach up, stretch yourself, don’t be contained. ”
I feel a rush of excitement when I think of stretching myself, of reaching up, trying new things, looking for adventure. This poem is inspiring me to reach higher.
“Soar on the wings of your dreams” !! Yes.. I will, Larry.
