Beautiful Canada!

Wow, it's been a while since I last posted eh. Ive been busy with work and life in general, that I havent taken the time to post to my blog. This pic was taken the weekend before last up in Harrison Hot Springs in BC, Canada. Such a sight up there. Tree's and mountains surrounding. It's beautiful up there. Living in the NW is pretty dang nice itself, but man this place is somewhere you need to see if you can make it. It's only 3 hrs away from the Seattle area. Not too bad of a drive. It's a great drive really. The beach there is really really nice. Like having the ocean beach right there on the lake and the water wasnt too bad. It was a little chilly due to it being glacial water from the mountains. Mid Aug is not too bad, considering it was 90 degrees up there too. It felt good to get in the water.

The also have some great sand castle building up there. Coming up very soon in September they have a sand castle building competition. I think I may have to take the family back up there to see that. They have a website which shows some of the past exhibitions. Pretty dang sweet what they can do what that sand. Here is the link Harrisand.org

If you follow the pic above there are a couple of other pics that I took while up there. Some good ones of some of the sand castles they have on display right now.

One plus is that the American dollar is worth more than the Canandian dollar so our money is a little easier spent there. Another plus to Canada is the chocolate. :P I had one of the best candy bars Ive had in a long time up there. I heard someone say that they put a waxy like substance in American chocolate. Im not sure if that is accurate or not, but I did notice a different taste to the chocolate up there.

Anyways...Take a look up there if you are in the area, it's worth the trip.
