Mom's vacation photos: White Rock, B.C.

Now that Mom's officially "back at work," her vacation's over. Sigh ...

We thought that we'd share this slideshow of the photos that Mom took during her day trip to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. She drove from Seattle to Canada on Friday, June 27th ... an' spent about five hours in the Great White North at a beach community called White Rock.

Mom marveled at how clean efurrything was there at the beach. Being from San Diego, she knows that 'beans aren't the best at keeping things clean an' neat ... so she was furry impressed at the lack of tagging and garbage.

The two things that were disappointing were: the Canadian border dood (okay: Mountie) didn't stamp her passport AND the wait to get back into the United States took more that two hours (an' it was really hot outside).

Anyway, there are forty-four school days 'til her next vacation, but she's likely gonna hafta teach intersession ... BIG sigh.

What a lovely spot! My mom would love to take a vacation there, where it's nice and cool (compared to Texas) and clean!

That beach is kinda part-park, part-beach. Very different to Aussie beaches, but beautiful nevertheless. The photos at the border were very interesting. I've never crossed a border. That's what happens when a mancat lives in an island state in an island country! Love those flower flags!

What a great vacation and thanks for sharing the photos.

Mom is going to San Diego for a meeting in August and will stay a couple of days for vacation and then go up the coast for a few days. The Pacific Coast sure is different from the Atlantic Coast.

Your mom's vacation photos are beautiful. It looks like she had a good time. We hope her first couple of days with the kids are uneventful.

If your mom isn't too tired, we are having a BBQ for Southern CA kitties this Sunday at 1:00. The information is on our blog, or you can e-mail us.

How lovely! Our Lady wants to check out Canada too, but we won't let her go anywhere. Well, we're letting her go to the BBQ Sunday - does your mom want to go? She'd love to meet her.
