May 3 - My daughter headed off today with friends, all piled into a 91 Volvo station wagon, off on "Kath's Excellent Adventure". Headin' down the highway, lookin' for adventure. And eventually Whitehorse, and west to Kluane National park. A month in the woods, at a field camp that's part of the Arctic Institute of North America.
She sounded upbeat before she left, in an email to all -
Well, here we are again, with summer knocking at our door! The sun is out til eight o'clock and the sandals are creeping out of the closet and on to the streets. I hope that this summer holds many adventures for all of you, and I'd love to hear about all the crazy times. I am on my way to the Yukon in the morning, and will be back for Canada Day in Ottawa. I am driving up to Whitehorse with some friends, then I will take the ferry down the west coast from Skagway (Alaska) to Prince Rupert, then to Port Hardy on Vancouver Island. I will camp my way down the Island to Victoria then hang out there for a week or so and fly out from Vancouver (I'm only crossing Canada in a car once a year, thank you).
I wish you all the best adventures this summer and let me know if you are all over the country and maybe we'll have tea in a small town somewhere!
Love, sunshine and morning dew to you all, Katherine xxo
