Arriving by plane, bus, boat and car, four sisters met to reminisce, catch up on life, laugh a lot, walk a little and enjoy good food. After meeting with rounds of hugs in Chilliwack we motored off to tour the beautiful Minter Gardens. I can't believe that for many years I have driven past this amazing piece of horticulture art. Had to restrain myself from continually peeking through my viewfinder as truly the garden's grandeur cannot be captured in in a few photos. And ... there was visiting to do!

Our destination - Harrison Hot Springs

"Children of the same family, the same blood,
with the same first associations and habits,
have some means of enjoyment in their power,
which no subsequent connections can supply..."
~Jane Austen, Mansfield Park, 1814

Very comfortable and cozy accommodation at
Harrison Heritage House and Cottages

Minter Gardens was a great place to start our get together.
