Nov 1, 2012 - We made it!

Some of you may have thought what happened? Did they make it to the wedding? Did they get lost? Let me explain: Yes, we did make it to the wedding of Grace-Emma and Nick in Kelowna. As a matter of fact we arrived the Tuesday before the wedding on Saturday. However on Wednesday morning we went to Tim Horton's for coffee and somehow, someway I spilled a cup of coffee over my laptop. It was still closed and we cleaned the mess up right away but alas it would no longer work. The wedding service was great and the party and the dinner were...

Oct 29, 2012 - End Of Our Holiday

WOW....We can't believe the holiday is over. These past 3 weeks have been absolutely amazing and has been one of our best vacations ever. We saw so much, learned so much and met so many great people. We arrived home safely, although a bit tired from 3 very long flights and layovers, with all luggage accounted for. We certainly hope you've enjoyed our photos and stories as much as we've enjoyed sharing them with you, thanks also for the quick messages you've sent as we loved hearing stories from home. We'll say goodbye for now and been in...

Oct 2, 2012 - Kelowna

October 1, 2012 Cool morning. I had to work for a bit but left to walk around Kelowna around 10:30. The city is on both sides of the lake separated by an unusual bridge. The bridge is a camel hump in one spot to allow boats to travel under. We walked the city center (east Kelowna) which has a lovely city park along the water with lots of large marine sculptures. In the same area are condos with frontage docks and also the Delta high rise resorts. Across the street is a casino. Not much boating activity on the lake or on shore. We were very...

Oct 2, 2012 - Kelowna

October 2, 2012 Balmy at 6:00 and a wind came up and it is cold! Roadtrek people refused to see us here #@!* and we are so close. Will have to wait until Vancouver. Took a hike in Kalamoir Discovery Park along the lake. (The entire lake is about 74 miles long.) Access is off Boucherie Road which is where many of the Westside wineries are located. I was glad to have my stick (and Bob!) as we were up and down on narrow paths. BC has done a nice job of allowing ordinary people access to pristine beach property. Afterwards we visited Mt....

Sep 30, 2012 - Revelstoke to Kelowna

September 30, 2012 Had a special pancake breakfast this morning and did a bit of computer work as we have good WiFi. Just outside of Revelstoke is the Revelstoke Meadows in the Sky 26 K drive. There is so much publicity about this drive we were compelled to visit. In Canada there is a $16 daily park pass that you must buy to drive through any part of a national park. This can add up quickly! (In the US seniors buy a $10 life time pass. THAT’s a deal!) We bought another day’s pass and headed up the mountain on a road that was barely 2 lanes....

Aug 13, 2012 - Kamloops to Kelowna, BC

Continuing south, having passed up Banff and Jasper national parks, our route took us toward Kamloops, BC... "The tournament capital of BC", whatever that means. Along the way we stopped at a rest area with intensions of staying overnight. It was out of view of the freeway, quiet, pretty, and right on a river. In other words... Too good to be true. We were taking in the surroundings, sitting at a picnic table taking pictures of some gophers, when a strange young man walked over with his dog and began "hunting" the gophers. Photo session...

Aug 10, 2012 - A Single Step

Destination: Kelowna As the Confucian expression goes, a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, and in this particular case the journey exceeds a thousand miles considerably, with the the first step being taken on a gas pedal. And tripping over my own proverbial shoelaces as it turned out. The morning was spent downtown tidying up a few last minute pre-departure business details and meeting with Andrew, followed by a few last minute event confirmations, courtesy of Kairistie and Paul over at Ferrari. One of the perks of...

Jun 27, 2012 - Kelowna BC

Hauling your home through the mountains is different! Between Vancouver and Kelowna I got a much better sense of what it is like to pull a big trailer up a mountain and then have it chase you down the other side. (I now have much more respect for all those long haul semi drivers who have to cross the Rockies.) I went to Kelowna for a 4 day RV seminar that was held at the Community College in the city. About 45 or 50 trailers and RVs were collected in one of their "secure" parking lots and I drew a lot of attention when I arrived for 2...

Sep 28, 2011 - Our day with Chris, Steph and Kaden

Chris and Steph came over for breakfast. They are all packed up ready for the move so we took pity on them and fed them to fuel them up for the big day. We're going to meet the real estate lady at their new home this afternoon after Kaden gets out of school so that we can see what they bought.

On The Road Again!

Aug 18, 2011 - Wine, Telescopes, Barb & Kev and The Best Chicken in the World

Our friends Barb and Kevin retired in July and moved to West Kelowna so our next stop was a visit with them. On the way, we stopped at some wineries and loaded up the car with some new discoveries. First stop was back to Burrowing Owl to pick up a bottle of Pinot (they were sold out of the wine Dale had with his dinner, bummer). Then we went across the road to the Desert Hills Winery, a small, family run winery that has won many awards. With bottles of their wine in the car, our next stop was Church and State Winery. It was definitely the...

Jul 24, 2011 - Kelowna

@@@@@@@ My friend Cathy and I were both feeling badly that we had not managed to spend any quality time together during the past three summers. We have been fast friends since high school and during the almost twenty years that Cathy and her family lived in Saudi Arabia and later Abu Dhabi, she had almost always stayed in our home during her summer visits to Edmonton. We had long counted on the opportunity to stay up long into the night, catching up on all the happenings in our respective families. Ever since we had retired and sold our...
