Vacation ups and downs still make memories

There were so many signs leading up to our summer vacation that I wondered if some higher power was trying to tell us not to go.

Our accommodations closed the day before due to a COVID-19 outbreak. Then they almost didn’t let me on the plane because of a mistyped plane ticket. And then, when we arrived in Canada, all our luggage was still in Cleveland. Maybe the suitcases were heeding the warnings?

Lost luggage is one thing if you’ll be in civilization, but our wild family was headed to the backcountry of British Columbia for an adventurous vacation filled with hikes, alpine swims and climbing.

At least they had some of the necessities

As a peace offering, the baggage representative handed us each a small bag of travel toiletries. We had the clothes on our backs, and tiny bottles of lotion, toothpaste, and deodorant, along with matching razors and toothbrushes.
