Another Day

This morning brings another day of travel, this time back to our home to collect things needed for a longer stay in Kamloops.

The sun is shining, albeit from behind a veil of smoke. Fires burning elsewhere have left their mark on these skies, providing a grey cast to the air and a red filter for the sun.


The travel will take the better part of 7 hours and on Sunday I will do it again, retracing my path to return here with a carload of belongings.

I’m not sure how long my stay here in Kamloops will be, could be 6 months or more. The verdict is also still out on my feelings toward it. Only time will answer both.


  1. Looks like you’re getting settled in there in Kamloops Dwayne. Good luck with the new job! Is Maureen still working or does she have the summer off? Hope you enjoy your new “temporary” digs, I understand it gets really hot, weather wise, in Kamloops. The air is really smokey here too. We had a bit of rain a couple of nights ago but even that didn’t clear the air. Take care, talk to you again soon!

    1. We/I am getting there. So far the weeks have been very busy and the learning curve quite steep. I like the area though and the people have been nice and friendly for the most part. I will say thought that many of them drive like Calgary drivers, fast, on your tail, and seemingly impatient.
      Maureen is here now but going back home in the next few days, sharing her time between there and Kelowna.
      All in all it’s an adventure and one I’m largely enjoying. Ultimately that’s the point I guess.
