A "ferry" tale road trip day 5, June 6 2014

Up to an early start this morning as we were heading the the BC Home School Expo being held at the Tradex in Abbotsford, about a 25 minute drive from out hotel. We attended a couple of sessions with this year's keynote speaker, Andrew Pudewa. He's a very engaging speaker who clearly enjoys what he does and is very confident in his presentation, definitely not one of those speakers that has you looking at your watch every ten minutes. Although we're not from BC we did see a couple of friends working their booth.

We said goodbye to the expo and headed east for the first leg of our trip home. After a stop in Hope for a quick bite to eat it was on the road northwards up Highway 5, aka the Coquihalla Highway, to Merrit BC and then eastward on Highway 97C to our overnight stop in West Kelowna.

Typical Fraser Valley scenery in the Lower Mainland of BC

What's a road trip without a stop at Tim Horton's? This one is in Hope BC.

All in all an enjoyable day with a great hotel at the end. Tomorrow we're off to Revelstoke via Nakusp which will have us taking a couple of ferry rides! Stay tuned.
