Day Five: Travel to Edmonton

*You might want to go and make a cup of tea now... there are lots of pictures today!*

Today we travelled from Vancouver to Edmonton, a 12 hour trip without stops... Don’t worry we definitely stopped!

Today I just expanded on yesterday’s bracelet with Henry (silver Owl bead) this might be classed as cheating on my mission to make different combinations, but we left early – and I am definitely not a morning person!

The rest of the post it just pictures of how beautiful the view was...

First View of a Mountain, about 5 minutes from home!

(Iced) Coffee Break! :D

Worlds longest trains are all in Canada

The water looked so refreshing, especially when it was 36'c outside

Old barns, felt like I was in a Western

And then I wanted white water raft!

Stopped by the river (might have dipped my toes in)


Waterfall through the trees

Moose Lake

My feet... in Moose Lake

Jasper National Park

Jasper Village

Words of Wisdom


And the sun was setting at we rolled into Edmonton

Straight to work when we got in making Indian Sweets for the Wedding

Day Four: Shannon Falls and Squamish.

Sparkling Star, Milky Way, Mountain Crystal, The Eye
Today we went on a day trip to the old mining town of Squamish. On the way we stopped at Shannon falls and explored around Britannia Mining Museum (Unfortunately we didn’t have time to go in) I went with a simple blue bracelet, with Mountain Crystal because we would be driving through the mountains. I also broke my rule of odd numbers on a bracelet, I think that a few like this looks pretty good too!
Love how moody the clouds look over the mountain!

Bulrushes in the pond in the car park

Lots of Gemstones at the Mining Museum

Jade Bears. East Asia meets Canada!

Wanted to run across here!

A beautiful old Post Office!

Shannon falls. I heard it was the largest
waterfall in British Columbia

Selfie Time!

No Zoom on this picture, you can follow a path quite
 close and then trek the rest of the way to the top!
In Squamish, found a friend!
and his hotel!

A frame shop, covered in wood!
My first ever Slurpee, felt like I
was on the Simpsons!
