We've been back a week.
The suitcases have still not been unpacked.
Jet lag has taken its toll and I seem to be in real danger of becoming nocturnal. (I went to bed at 5 a.m. one day.)
Canada (Alberta and British Columbia this time) and Alaska were truly spectacular. We travelled by plane, train, ship and coach and managed four days in fabulous Vancouver.
Unfortunately, my camera didn't perform quite so spectacularly (yes, I know it's a poor workman who blames his tools but I'm thinking I need an upgrade) so I've pinched some of the mister's pictures to add to mine to give you a flavour of what we got up to.

If you're wondering, the sprained ankle made for slow and painful progress but we ended up changing just one of the planned activities.
Boo had a whale of a time with his carer in Darlington (he's been turning his nose up at the usual dog food since his return) and the cats, well one of them, made the most of his absence to get in a bit of uninterrupted sunbathing.
