Report of Wednesday 2013-07-24
Edit by Dielof
This morning just after 7. I wake up. The zipper of my tent is open already so Dirk has started his daily procedures. First I wake up Fred.
Where of the hell is Dirk…….
His hotel is still closed. After looking around for some time I decide to call for him, it’s a little late. Dirk opens his hotel and says it’s Wednesday, and I always am allowed to sleep a little longer.
We prepare the breakfast and start to break down our tent. After the breakfast we’re ready to leave. The save trip wishes with a nice flower for missing Trudy.
Fred films the departure of the campsite through the river again.
Via Nordegg and Rocky Mountain House we are heading for Carstairs. There lives Joe, Fred’s nephew, with his wife Caren. We travel through hilly country-side. Enormous farmlands. And the road goes on. Up hill, down hill.
The GPS takes us directly to the address of Joe and Karen in Carstairs. The greeting was very warm.
Just to explain the situation. Joe is Fred’s nephew and Joe left Holland 60 years ago. Joe and Fred didn’t see each other that long. Nevertheless, it was a nice meeting. They talked till late in the evening with a picture-book to bring up nice memories.
