We are now back from Canada: back from visiting friends and relations and back from all that white stuff! This post will form the first of a series about our trip to Vancouver and Salmon Arm, British Columbia, over the Christmas and New Year season.

 My brother and I in Salmon Arm

Heading for Glasgow Airport.  In the distance is the sunset which Iain said reminded him of an Australian bush fire!  In the middle distance is Ailsa Craig (rock) situated in the Clyde Estuary.

That green land below the thick cloud is the Ayrshire coast.  This is me thinking GREEN (it is January after all!) not FOG, GREY CLOUD and DARK AT 4:30 PM!

The Welcome: 

A feast for travel-weary eyes were these flowers in the front hall of Maggie and Brian's house as we arrived for dinner which Maggie had prepared. Brian collected us at the airport after a very long 2 stage (and as pleasant as could be expected for the circumstances) British Airways flight (Vancouver - London Heathrow - Glasgow).
