About Me

I purchased "Sadie''s House On Wheels "in late 2007 and loved traveling in a motor home so much that I went on the road full time in late 2008. I started writing this blog to help me remember all the wonder places I have been and it allows me to share those places with my family and friends. Summer of 2013 I decided to hang up the keys for a while and moved back into my stick house. After nearly two years, I am on the road again.

May 16, Williams Lake

We left our campsite and continued onward on Highway 98 towards Lillolet. Bill had told us there was a Jade exhibit there and some other interesting things.  The road continued to be steep and windy.  At least there were a few more places to pull out and see the sites.
This was at one of the pull outs.

We missed the little town of Lillolet and we didn't turn off the highway soon enough and then there was no place for all of us to turn around.  We continued on to Clinton which was suppose to have some sites.  Clinton was a little disappointing.  I think the Mile Post hyped up this town a little too much.  There was a plot of land which had a bunch of signs on it with names and cities, but not much else.  Maybe we missed something?

The road leveled out and made for smooth driving  so we continued on to 100 Miles House to see the original mile house and huge skis.

 By the time we got there the visitor center was closed and we needed to think about finding a place for the night.  We decided that the 100 Mile House was actually the visitor center and not the original mile house but a replica. We decided to go on to Williams Lake and stay at the Signal Point Casino not too far up the road.

Williams Lake is a beautiful little lake and a place worth exploring more, but that will be another trip.  The casino overlooks the lake and we had some nice views. I walked Sadie down towards the lake and the homes were on beautiful lake front property.

Early morning near the lake. I noticed that the morning light is coming earlier every day.

We drove a total of 185 miles today.
