A road trip through British Columbia.
Day three of my vacation consisted of driving. A whole lot of driving. Luckily I wasn’t the one behind the wheel on our road trip through British Columbia. This time and I learned that it is a whole lot easier (and perhaps a whole lot safer) to take video and photos while being a passenger.
We woke up early in the morning, checked out of our hotel in Seattle, Washington, and hit the road in a rental car for the Canadian border. Our destination for the night was a motel in New Hazelton, British Columbia.
Can you believe that this was my first time ever in Canada!?!?!?
The day really did consist of nothing but driving, gas station stops, and lunch at a cute little hamburger joint (I got a fish sandwich and strawberry shake.) While we had no actual stops planned along the way I did manage to see a whole lot of Canadian roadside attractions out the window of the car! From a big marmot to a big toy man (Mr. PG) to a giant chicken on the roof of a restaurant! How awesome is that?
After driving through British Columbia for about 16 hours we didn’t get to our destination until well after midnight and, by that time, despite doing nothing but sit in a car all day long, I was pretty exhausted.
