Day 7

   

Saturday, 22nd December

We went to Wal-Mart and bought ourselves some gloves ready for the snow.  Aaron arrived at 9:30 to spend the day with us.     

We went to Columbia – a preserved gold rush town where we met Danielle, Jerry and Sean.  There was a lot of frost including on the rooves of houses and the puddles were also frozen.  We had ice on the windscreen.  We went on a guided walking tour and heard mostly about the women of the early days.  We came home for lunch and the boys and Grandma played “Sorry”.

   

At 4:15 am we left for dinner at the Black Oakes Casino restaurant.  We were surprised to see that a courtesy bus continually circled the car park to take visitors 50 metres to the building.

       

We had a lovely meal.  I had salmon and most of the others had steak and lobster.  We had an entre platter and a dessert platter.  There was a quartet singing carols.  After dinner we went downstairs to bowl.
