Eric and Monique were moving into an unfurnished apartment in Kelowna from the furnished one that they started out with in the fall. The "new" apartment is bigger, cheaper and much closer to school and work for both of them. Altogether much better. But they needed their furniture, which was taking up space in our basement. Needless to say, we were quite happy to get it out of our basement, which meant we had to get it to Kelowna. We rented a cargo van from Budget, loaded up and took off for Kelowna.
My Mom is 80 and has played piano for most of her life. She has an ARCT, which is like a music degree, from the Toronto Conservatory. She taught piano for years, and years, and years and has some very interesting experiences to share about her early years travelling by bus and train in rural Alberta to teach music. She has played organ for church choirs, lead choirs and accompanied them - all at once. She has formed, lead, and accompanied community choirs for fun and with them has raised tens of thousands of dollars for charity.
I took the up-coming pix on the way home. Same mountains we went through in the fall (see Sept road trip posts) but with spring weather. So still some snow. It was mostly overcast so there is some interesting fog and cloud. Mountains are always interesting because the weather is constantly changing. Driving can be quite treacherous so this is probably about the earliest we would ever venture driving in the mountains.
