Down stairs there are dark polished wood floors. I think that feels like an Aussie touch. We feel very welcome and relaxed.
From the only in America department, this lady arrived at the door today:
Can you see the letters on her top? She works for PooperTroopers.com. Yes, she's here to pick up the dog poop!
The bus trip from Vancouver to here was very scenic. I was surprised to see that even in the height of summer here the surrounding mountains are still capped with snow. Lots of lush greenery, fun to spot plants that grow in our part of the world.
We're having a few quiet days at home then we go exploring this lovely location.
