It rained hard again today so we went to Santa Land in North Pole. This is a huge Christmas store that has everything Christmas. We didn’t get to see Santa because he takes Sunday and Monday off, but we did see some of his reindeer.

Agassiz, BC which is east of Vancouver and we are going to visit them after we
We are staying at Canada West RV Park just
outside the town of Revelstoke.This is not as nice a campground as we had at Golden and it is
noisy as we are between Hwy 1 and the railroad tracks, but at least there are
not very many mosquitoes. Mariah likes
it because they have a swimming pool. We
changed times zones so we are now on Pacifi…
