A few of us decided to go to Skookumchuck Hot Springs (aka St Agnes Wells) for the Easter Long weekend... and as a belated birthday trip for Reece (aka MurDoug). The weather forcast looked horrible but we didn't care. So we packed the truck and headed up to the hot springs for the weekend... which turned out to be a really nice weekend. Sunny breaks and only periods of light rain all weekend and a decend amount on Sunday when we left. Couldn't have been better!!!

Note: I wanted to take pictures of the actual tubs but there were people who like to bathe in the tubs the 'natural' way. So instead, I attached pictures of a couple of the tubs that I took last year.

Mmmmm bacon.... had lots of bacon

105106
Smoke-e (yes, that's what it said on his dog tag), one
of the dogs that lives at the campsite, a res-dog. One
of the sweetest and cutest puppies I have ever met!

105107
Andrea wanted to take Smoke-e home so bad...
I wanted to too!

105122
Smoke-e... what a cutie!

105108
Nemesis, the other camp dog and Smoke-e's buddy.
He was so well behaved too, and a sweetheart. These
two were so well fed this weekend by us...

(Sorry, forgot to take an after picture, but it was
delicious!!!)

An osprey perched by the riverside

105117
We got to watch the osprey hover motionless in the air
and then swoop down along the river, trying to cath a tasty
fish. We watched him for about 20 minutes before he left.
