We are starting our six week long trip with two nights in Abbostford. M, our daughter, is convocating on Saturday with a Master’s in Counseling Psychology from Trinity Western University. A small group of cheering family is gathering to celebrate her accomplishment.
We are flying into Vancouver on Friday, will rent a car and drive out to Abbotsford and then fly to London from Vancouver on Sunday. M&G arrive at the Abbotsford airport late on Friday and leave early Sunday morning. A very quick trip for them.
Murray and I will get to play tourist in Abbotsford on Friday and in Vancouver on Sunday. I now have a short list of touristy things to do in both places.
Near Abbotsford there is Clayburn Village, an historic village built in the early 1900s to support the employees of the Clayburn Company. Looks like a worthwhile place to stroll through. Here is the link to their website:
In Abbostford, there is an historic downtown and an abundance of walking trails, so we will be go for a walk to stretch our legs.
Murray and I love art galleries, so on Sunday after we take M&G to the airport, we will head into Vancouver to visit the Vancouver Art Gallery. I also found Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden that looks inviting.
We are going to walk lots on Sunday as that evening we start our extremely long haul to Tanzania and we want to be tired when we get on the airplane.
We have a plan for our first stop in Abbotsford and Vancouver. Stay tuned.
