Don and I have been going somewhere in September for years now. When we worked traditional jobs it was sometimes difficult, but as we began our own companies, etc. we became better at going away and or working away.
This year we had to work it around my Co-op Board role. So we went to BC for 3 weeks, came home and unpacked the trailer, packed our suitcases, and headed to Saskatchewan. Don dropped me at the hotel in Saskatoon and went on to Tisdale to visit family.
But first - BC.
I just love the southern part of our province and the windmills, and after a summer of driving the boat around as we camped, I was happy to be a passenger again.
We did a lot of exploring on this trip as well. We actually drove to Trail to see my niece Jenny and her boys, and while there her and I had lunch while Don and Ivan went to explore. Oh I forgot to mention Ivan joined us here for a few days.
We weren't really sure when we were leaving or where we were going, but the weather or actually the smoke from the forest fires made the decision easier. We headed to Cranbrook and at the end of the day actually found ourselves back at Abraham Lake.
It was at bit busier than earlier in the season, but just a hint of smoke. We relaxed there for a few days, then headed home.
I had a commitment to work at a golf tournament, then we were headed to Saskatchewan.
This gave us a chance to do some yard work and laundry before heading out.
By the time we got home September was nearing an end.
It was a great month with more memories. Don had a wonderful visit with his mom and family and I made it through my first set of in person Board meetings!
