Mooseless in BC. 8-24-16

Looked all day, still no moose sightings. Im begining to believe its all a Canadian Tourist Bureau hoax.

We left our not so nice motel and went to a small but very good coffee shop/breakfast place.  It is a great place, good breakfasts with a variety of there own baked goods.

We rode on to Prince George as the day really started warming up.  We stopped at the Harley dealer in Prince George and picked up a chip and for the first time had a look at a couple of 2017 bikes.  One had the new 8 valve, water cooled, 107 c.i. engine.  Had a good talk with the salesman who confirmed that our choice of a route to Vancouver was a good one.

We went South out of Prince George on PR 97 in route to Clinton, BC.  We were in more farm and ranch area with lakes that were more like what we see in Michigan with cottages and boats.  As we approched Clinton the mountains started again with a river in the valley.

We got to Clinton at a little after 6:00 and checked in at the Cariboo Lodge.  We have a good room attaced to the main building.  They have a restaurant and bar, very handy with good pub fare.

We checked on the ferry out of Horseshoe Bay and it appeared to be full on all the scheduled sailings.   Our waitress at the restaurant that used to work on the island told us just go to the ferry you’ll get on.  She said she never made a reservastion.  Were going to give it a shot.

On to Vancouver tomorrow.
