We had breakfast in our room this morning and checked out of the Hotel. We left for North Vancouver, after the traffic had died down. We felt like competent Canadian drivers now that we had 2 days driving on what felt like the wrong side of the road.
We found the RV again much easier this time with a decent map and after checking out a few things offered $18 000 which was accepted and we paid a $1000 deposit
We had "our" RV !
To celebrate we went down into the local mall to a "Zellars" store (similar to a Kmart) and purchased all the things we needed. We quickly discovered that this was going to be expensive so we just put our heads down and got everything we thought we needed. Sheets, pillows, duvets, towels, plates, glasses/cups, cookware, bowls, kettle, utensils, outdoor chairs, BBQ, cleaning equipment and tools, etc - 2 very full trolleys worth - over $500 worth. We even had a shop assistant all to ourselves for the shopping.
We packed the stuff in the car - it only just fitted and headed off to find a new main battery for the RV. We ate dinner at a local restaurant "Kelseys" the waiter was a nice young chap who had been to NZ. We then drove back to the Hotel. On the way we discovered an Ikea which we just had to visit. We again purchased more RV equipment - some a repeat of what we had already bought which was either better suited or cheaper. We decided we would return things to Zellars.
We got back to the Hotel quite late, 9:30 pm and hit the sack - tired but relived.
