We arrived back at MamaYeh on Thursday, 07/15 to this welcome signOur week here is flying by, Saturday we went to PG’s Summer Fest. We then met up with our Kelowna neighbours, Mags & Steve for a delightly time at CrossRoads Brewery. We are having fun keeping track of each other’s travel adventures.
Today, Barkerville. It’s 2 hour drive and we soon find the construction. This was caused by a rock/mud slide.
Very curvy road with many “Watch for Wildlife” warnings
Made it, arriving at 1025
Main Street, Barkersville
First stop the brewery! Unfortunately, this is not one of the functioning buildings
Next stop, super early lunch as we didn’t have breakfast. Love having a private restaurant, feel for the restaurant though. Allan is busy planning our walking tour. First stop: Doctor’s office, oh the tools… Dentist’s office
Hightlight of the visit? Allan will be panning for gold!!
Dude is teaching Allan how to pan. We learn gold is more dense than stones. The idea is to fill the pan with water, shake & shake to bring the stone to the surface, dump the stones & repeat, ends in nuggets-you hope.
Quesnel is close by (pronounced: S is silent) Head there to take a peek
Back home we see this beauty on our grill
