Driving through Vancouver to our destination for the night we travelled over the Port Mann bridge. This beautiful structure is a toll bridge in the Greater Vancouver Area but no more stopping to pay the toll. You can pay it online with your license place and a credit card. If you don’t, you will be sent a invoice for the toll.
Leaving this afternoon we drove through the bountiful agricultural areas just east of but included in some of the communities east of the cities. You will see fields of many different crops.
We were shocked to find that Cache Creek had been evacuated due to wild fires that had quickly started in many areas in the interior of BC. The one we had spotted on Thursday shortly after it had started had grown exponentially and many more were active as well. Unfortunately, our motor home was now behind closed roads and we were unable to retrieve it. This has necessitated an additional night in Kamloops hoping that we will be able to reach it in the morning. If not, we may have to leave and come back to get it next weekend. Hopefully not, as that would be more miles than we were planning on!
