Nelson Trip, Part One

We had planned to go to Nelson to visit friends over Easter weekend, but because of the storm had to change our plans. Three weeks later, we were able to go there. As we drove north, we were very thankful we hadn’t tried to go! The scars from the storm were still very visible, and it was obvious that we would not have made it through with our van.DSCF2558DSCF2561DSCF2562

It was hard to capture the destruction with the camera as we drove; these pictures just show a fraction of what we saw.DSCF2571

We had the most beautiful day for our trip up there! The sun shone all day, and everyone was happy. No grumping all day—what a blessing!
