Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Wednesday’s Photos

Finally Home After Sixteen Days of Evacuation

First of all, a big thank you goes out to all my blogging friends for all the compassionate comments that you sent out to me while my wife and I were forced to leave our home first, then also our travel trailer on the other side of the Arrow Lake. I am sorry that during our exile I was unable to write comments even though I read most of your posts and left a like. We have been allowed to come back to our small community with the understanding that we should be vigilant and be aware that while the evacuation order has been rescinded the alert is still in effect. We are very happy that our home has not suffered any damage. Some of the flowers have wilted, but the garden has not suffered too much under the dry and hot conditions. Today, we took the ferry across the lake to visit our beloved beach and check on the trailer. Everything looked just the way as before. Here are a few photos of our little vacation spot at the lake. You can see that there is still smoke and haze in the air from the nearby forest fires. We hope that the wildfires are beginning to ease. Two days ago, we had our first substantial rain in more than six weeks. Thanks again for your patience!

  2. Peter, so thankful to God, that your home and travel trailer are intact. You and Biene will be able to enjoy your own home and the garden produce. There is nothing like enjoying your own home! Glory to God for his preserving you and your home. Abundant blessings!

      1. You are welcome! I understand how devastating forest fires can be. We have been completely surrounded by forest fires in past years and had more than 6 million acres burn. This year has not been bad due to having a rainy summer. May the forest fires calm down in your area!

  4. I’ve been waiting for your report, and it’s wonderful news that you’ve been able to return to an intact home and ‘just slightly wilted’ garden. The photos are delightful; it’s especially good to see your smiles!

  5. Peter and Biene, what a relief to hear that your home and all is safe by now, upon the returning at your home. You both look great and happy in your swimming suits in front of your kajak. I am happy that outlived this horror of flames. Be well now. Greetings from my coast
