This old car performed it’s promotional duties for decades at Keromeos in the okanagan, pointing the way to the fresh taste of corn, cherries and other produce.
It also served, for us, as a time marker during our twelve hour trips from the East Kootenays to the Fraser Valley. It became an achievement to reach this point of the trip and it was always a welcome and uplifting sight.
For many years, dozens of adventurers journeyed from BC to Mexico each fall in this old bus which had already been retired once. Each trip was more tenuous than the last but no less joyous…Fort Langley – San Francisco-Mexicali – Mazatlan – Vallarta have all felt the rumble and vibrations of this old girl.
Now parked and entwined in blackberry bushes and grape vines with the motor long gone it now serves as a dark cool getaway for a summer read
I volunteer at a breeding centre for endangered animals and get to see and work with an amazing array of endangered animals.
This is a page of sketches of Ivan an Asian Greater One Horned Rhinocerous and is an amazing critter, very calm and peaceful but you get the feeling he is taking your measure. Loves to have his upper lip scratched and I can never feed or clean up the results of the feeding without smiling. He is a treasure.
