We toured around Atlin Terminal while waiting for the scooter rentals to open. I found a cool stationanery that you write on, fold up and mail off. It has Nancy Drew book covers on it!! We picked out a few magnets for family and drooled over the beautiful art. Then we rented scooters for an hour, and toured approx 10 kms of the houses and bay. It was awesome, except for the rain and wind at the end. I tried to make my scooter for up to the 60 khm mark. But no such luck.
We returned then and it started to pour rain. We rounded off the eveing at The Rain Lounge. Where we had yummy drinks, filo pastry baked appy like foods! It was a beautiful place with cool lights and decor.
When we arrive home, I learned that I missed a thunder & lighting show.. Aww, oh well.

We had beautiful weather, and I was able to take part in a lot more activities this year! We went to the opening ceremonies on Friday night and heard the Spirit of Terrace preformed by the Terrace Band.
We also heard Dixieland play, they where really fun sounding.
We also enjoyed the fireworks, which turned into a long night because we went out to Caleb's birthday which was slightly insane.. bumping down a road crossing my fingers that we are going the right way. It was beautiful spot. Totally surrounded by the mountain range, with the stars and moon illuminating it. Sunday we listened to some music in the park and watched the volleyball games.
Monday we watched the duckys jump from the heli-copter and looked at the model trains. With a small walk in the sunshine, it was a great ending for my riverboat days.
As a kid I love to pull them apart and lick out the white center. Well today I purchase a pkg, and totally blew any healthy eating plans. But as I'm walking back to work and crunching away. I'm barely tasting the white filling and feeling mostly black sawdusty cookie. All I can think is "great, now my teeth are full of black muck" Eww..
Then I turn the package over, 9 cookies equals 130 calories. I stop reading right there. I think these cookies will be donated to the childern, at least the calories will be well spread out :)
