Stayed at Dan and Jeans last night then came the rest of the way home today. Roger is going to pick up the doors for the back porch, some more meat for the freezer and also haul some fuel.

Hans had his vet appointment on Wednesday, got his shots and checkup. He already weighs 48# (which is only 6# less than Jeff) and he is only 4 months old! We could be in trouble...........the new back porch may have to become part of the house just for him. LOL. We also had it confirmed by the vet that Hans does have a vision problem. We were pretty sure of it just from our observations of his actions, like if Jeff gets too far ahead of him on the trail he will sit down and wait until either we catch up to him or Jeff comes back for him. If you call him and he is too far away you have to call him repeatedly so that he can follow the sound and I can't throw a stick too far when we play or he loses sight of it and can't find it. His peripheral vision is also affected which is why he is so jumpy when approached from the side or rear. He is such a character though that there is no way I would get rid of him. We get many a good laugh from his antics.

Tomorrow I should go and pick rose hips for jam before they are gone. Things hit their ripeness and are gone quickly around here. (Bears?) Thinking of bears they did not visit while we were gone this time. It may be that mama bear has been killed as two neighbors have each killed a bear in the last couple of weeks. Roger did put nails around the windows and cut off the heads to discourage them from "window peeking". I also need to go over to Bentalit Lodge for some strawberry plants that Pat offered. I'll get some water while I am there too. Hopefully Roger will make it home tomorrow evening but it always seems to take longer in town than we anticipate.
That is all for tonight. Here is another sunset picture, if you look close you can see the fog starting to form on the river. Thanks for sharing our amazing adventure.
