28 Aug, 2006 Pat’s Place
I am truly sorry, folks, but there are no terribly important or spectacular events that are very long so I am still skipping some days. We arrived in Inuvik yesterday and slept over in our RV there. Dad, Martin (remember him from one of my other journals?), Kate (a new friend) and Pat are going to Ivvavik to take pictures, hike, paint, and enjoy the scenery with the arts in the parks program. During that time Mom, Sydney and I agreed to house-sit and pet-sit for her and it was fun. She has great pets they are a black and brown dog, Belle, an orange cat, Peaches, and another black cat, Cally.
We spent a lot of time at the library there that was great. Inuvik may be small, but it has one of the best pools I have seen. There is a “lazy river” where a current pulls you through a channel. It also has a great water slide. So 7 days seemed to fly by like nothing.
When the gang came back we made a few calls to home telling them that tomorrow we are on our way home!!!
