SUNNY SUNDAY OUTING

On Sunday, we decided to go for a Sunday Drive.  Almost every year, we go to see the Rhododendrens  in Manning park.  It is about 190  Kms  on the way to Hope BC.  The plants are native to the area, but they have put a winding path through the plants so people can walk and see them, with out ruining their habitat.  There were still some blooms left, but they had  the rain storms that we had, so, unfortunately the flowers had taken quite a beating and were not as beautiful as in past years.

QUITE FRANKLY IT IS A GOOD THING THAT IT IS RAINING.   BUT, IT IS A STORM, WITH VERY LOUD THUNDER!  SO FAR, I HAVE NOT SEEN LIGHTNING!  IT HAS BEEN SOOO DRY HERE, AND UNSEASONABLY HOT...WE HAVE FORREST FIRES IN THE AREA, BUT THANK GOODNESS, NOT IN MY BACKYARD.  HOPEFULLY, IT STAYS THAT WAY!!!!!
