May Long Weekend
They are out hugging the curves of Highway 3. I am certain that the beauty and openness will drink into her soul. I am envious but not jealous. Yesterday they wended through the Nicola Valley, roads that hug arid land and abandoned farms. The spectacular is constant at each round of the bend - perhaps a herd of cattle drinking at a lake or the immense tailings ponds that remind me we do not all see the same things of this land. They will follow the river along Old Hedley Highway today. The road has no dotted lines because of curves, but is also a road less traveled because for most it is the destination they are getting to, and not the journey itself. Daddy and daughter moving fluidly as one, enjoying the purr of the engine, the vastness of the sky and the wind in their face.
