Pictures of Canada

Three weeks ago, I packed my suitcase and my backpack and moved from Iowa to British Columbia.  I had also shipped some boxes, which have finally arrived and I'm all unpacked.  I'm still getting settled in (figuring out where all my parishioners live, and getting use to living so far away from my family and Russ), but I am thrilled to be here and excited for the year to come. 

Instead of a long post with detailed descriptions of what I've done the last few weeks, I thought I would share some pictures I've taken. 

This is my front door

Peaches, a friendly neighborhood cat

A statue in town

Do you see the face?

The Skeena River

This is the bay near town.  The mountains in this picture is the mainland.

This picture may give you an idea of how big those mountains are.
Most of these pictures were taken on the same day.  Because the town is on the coast, we get about eighteen inches of rain a month, so it's usually raining.  On this particular day, my supervisor's wife, an ELCIC deaconess, came into the office to take me on a long car drive up the highway so I could see the river. 

Needless to say, I live in a beautiful part of the world. 


  1. You do live in a beautiful place, can your Dad and I move in with you now?

    1. I don't think my apartment is big enough for three! But as soon as you get passports, you can come visit! :)

  2. Cindy and I would also love to visit. If no one else is comming out the week of Thanksgiving and I get the time off and you want us we would love to visit.

    1. I would love for you to visit! Let me know the details and I'll make sure to take a few days off!

      PS do you mean American Thanksgiving? or Canadian Thanksgiving?

  3. I'm a fellow Aloha camper and live in the Fraser Valley. Welcome to BC! Hope you find daily blessings.
