Derby Reach Regional Park

My parents have their trailer down at the Derby Reach campground, which sits on the Fraser River. They invited James and me to come stay with them for a night, and we jumped at the chance.

After lunch we took a leisurely walk through the park, which makes you feel like you’re about as far from civilisation as can be.

Wild bunnies hopped in and out of bushes, and I wanted to pet them all.

My Dad pointed out the wild hops growing up an electrical pole.

I’m a big fan of a cold and refreshing Indian Pale Ale, but I’d never seen an hop in real life. How pretty!

We walked along a country road for a while before heading back into the park and along a trail that made its way back to camp.

Tasty dinner back at camp..

We then watched the sun set, marking the end of another Summer day.

After dark my step-Mom brought out ice cream and we listened to an old timey radio play starring Cary Grant called, “Old Country Road”.

This morning we left not long after breakfast to head back to reality. It was a quick but really nice visit!

Bonne journée!
