Update added – 22 April 2008
What I didn’t mention previously is that Vince and I went exploring a little – for a drive. We were in the Highlands (one of the small municipalities usually lumped in as “Victoria”) and on a road when we came to a fork in the road. We had two choices really. Turn around or go left. The left one was interesting to say the least. Signs posted were: “Two lane traffic, one lane road” and “Local traffic only”.
It was a white-knuckled adventure for Gayle and an adrenaline rush for Vince. It was steep in places, twisty with blind curves, barely room to pass in more than one spot and was slippery. The melting snow pummelled the van at times and I jumped when the snow hit.
All in all, it was an adventure!
