I have spent the last 2 hours, trying to get this post to ‘take’…. but even though I have edited it a dozen or more times, and even deleted, and started over …. the photos just WON’T show up…..  I’ll try again tomorrow….   😦

In part one of the adventures of the traveling bears ‘ Link ,

the bears and their humans set out for Vancouver to get Paul moved and settled in for his new school year.

The bears loved sunbathing on the dashboard of the van, and agreed that they had the very best view of the scenery.

They quite enjoyed exploring the sand dunes in the Rocky Mountains.

Secretly, they were relieved that they didn’t meet any of their large Grizzly cousins.

Although, they assured everyone that they would be very brave and speak politely to any enormous bears who ambled past….

..

Paul and Little Bear took a verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry deep breath when they arrived on his new doorstep.

The adventures of 2 travelling bears-1

One of our son’s closest friends, Paul, decided to move to another city to go to school.

So, our son and his wife and another of their dear friends, (Mike), decided to drive Paul to his new city.

They loaded up their van with Paul’s possesions and came out to the farm to spend the night before ‘take off’.

As I watched them preparing for the journey, I had the sudden impulse to ask Paul if he would like a travelling comfort bear to keep him company on his great adventure.

He said- Yes, please!

Luckily, I have a stash of them, crocheted from the designs in my book: Crocheted Teddy Bears (link)

Mike was also open to adopting a teddy, so he chose one, too….

Soon, the Intrepid Travellers were all packed and ready to head out down the road, over the mountains to the Coast…..

The van was loaded right to the gills, so the bears decided to check the air pressure on the tires….

They declared it to be acceptable.

All hatches  battened… and the team prepared for a good night’s sleep and an early morning departure….

Further adventures of Team Paul and  The Amazing Travelling Bears to be continued….
