Life’s a Picnic…

Yesterday we went to Victoria to say good-bye to Jessica, my step-grand daughter!  She leaves on Friday for her job in Northern Alberta…to a remote town called High Level, Alberta where the temperatures can get as low as –40C in the dead of Winter and the snow can start flying in early October!!  Why would a young girl go off to northern Alberta to spend the Winter?…money of course!  She is a cook in one of the camps there and she is earning $$ to pay off her student loans!  There’s big bucks..in them, there towns!

So we had a picnic by the sea…and it was gorgeous!  Jessica took tons of pictures as many of her new friends in Alberta have never seen the ocean before!

A perfect day…that even the dogs enjoyed!  And a nice memory to take back ‘home’ to Alberta!  It doesn’t get any better than this!

On the quilting front…I’m still stitchin’…:o)   All’s good!

Have a Picture Perfect Thursday and Happy Quilting!~P

  1. really... -40 C. is not so bad...it is a dry cold!! Living on the prairies does have its challenges! Hope she enjoys her time there.

  2. Lovely pictures to get her throught the harsh winters. Hey Alberta can have snow in any month of a given year!

  3. My daughter moved to Alaska and experienced those temps this past winter - her first one there. She didn't think it was so bad. (She lived in Texas prior to that, with it's extreme heat.) Good luck to the yound and daring!
    Your pic is so beautiful!

  6. ahh the smell of "gold" has lured many to northern climes. I wish her well...I grew up in Northern Canada where -40 was a regular occurrence. It really is not that bad.

  9. What a wonderful way to spend the day, would love to visit your area, someday. It is wonderful that your grand daughter will do something like that to help get herself out of debt, too many kids now, think they world owes them something.
