Camping at Waters Edge Camping Ground, Dease Lake

Day 5.
Perfect location, great dinner, limited facilities.
A scouts own kind of stop.
No rain, a bit chilly and a good chance to try out our camping gear. It worked out well.
Most campers bring their motorhomes-hence the limited facilities for tenting.

Bears? you ask... There was a family of mother and two brown bears on the property by the roadside and a three year old that had been cast out of the family. We were assured that they wouldn't enter the camp.
In the morning a neighbouring camper showed us his mace that he carried everywhere on site and his mini cannon which made a loud noise and also used flas which both would scare off bears.
We weren't scared!




DIck is a master chef whenever we go camping. His reputation is intact.








Evening by the shore. The sun was up until after 10pm.

hi diana & dick - kim wallace here (daughter of your cousin jude!) what a couple of great adventurers you are. i totally admire what you are doing. my partner pete and son lennox and i are heading to belize & mexico at the end of the year (hoping to pop over to tikal in guatemala and possibly zip over to cuba as well but we only have 6 weeks so we shall see) mum suggested i check out your blog. i'm not much of a blogger so not even sure if you will get this! you must be mad keen to be doing it all on a motorbike... travelling lightly is not a real strong point of mine (i try!) anyway i will be following your journey with great interest and am sending some warm thoughts your way xx regards kim
