Today was a travelling day. We set out from Jasper late after a late breakfast and going to the Post Office to send Lucy and Sam presents for their birthdays. We then drove towards Kamploops. We stopped for lunch at a small town called Blue River. We had a great lunch there at Saddlelodge restaurant. We continued to drive along the Thompson River. One of the observations we have made is of the huge freight trains that run through here. Today as we were driving there were at least 12 trains which each stretched at least a kilometre in length. I managed to count the number of carriages and it was 100!!
We drove through Kamploops and on to Highway 1. We decided to stop at a small town called Lytton. It is a very run down type of place and it seems it is populated by a large number of indigenous Canadians. We drove just out of town to a Chinese restaurant for dinner. When the food eventually came it was great but we did have to wait over an hour for it.
Tomorrow we go to Vancouver where we plan to stay for a couple of days.
I will add some pictures to this from our experiences yesterday.

Waiting for my present!
The ice fields look amazing! We had a lovely dinner last night at the Kensi, and I was speaking with Kirsten about your visit to the icefields as she lived in Canada for 10 years - i think based in Calgary most of the time, so she knew the places you had been! Jo and Felix came too, its nice to have them back in Adelaide!

Told Sam about the presents on the way and also sent your love to Rowan, Sam and Amanda (who is systematically cleaning your kitchen cupboards!) Kate came out and was good to, but complained she was missed off your 'love to' list!! Enjoy Vancouver!
