September 20: Rain and Awning Tales

Surrey, BC - where the ferns grow on the trees

Surrey, BC - where the ferns grow on the trees

I have observed in the past that RV awnings are the invention of the devil.   They trap fingers, break at the slightest provocation, and in winds they act as a sail, until they tear away doing enormous damage.   So I avoid them as much as possible, by parking in the shade, and avoiding rainy places.    

We had not used our awning since we bought the trailer a year ago.   But Vancouver is wet, and yesterday I weakened.   Lo and behold.  It worked, and so far it has not blown away.

The awning was necessary so we could attack the crabs without spreading bits all over the carpet.  It may be wet here, but not that cold so far.  

Today is a chore day, and we are attacking some of the tasks we have put off for a month or so!   

The CBC says that it may be sunny tomorrow … with showers,  of course!

Took another walk in the Tynehead Park, this time with the camera. 

Moss growing on huge trees, and ferns growing in the moss.  A green and damp environment, and the green road was a far cry from a path we walked last February in Fort Clark Springs, Texas! 

 But this place has charm too, in between the rain showers.
