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...

Jun 24, 2011 - Kelowna

Kanadischer Wein? Ja, das dachten auch wir. In Europa fast gaenzlich unbekannt, recht gut und in der Region um Kelowna angebaut. Nach einer gemuetlichen Weindegustation an einem Weingut ausgewanderter Israelis gings weiter nach Richmond bei Vancouver. Wie ueberall in Kanada sind 460 Tageskilometer nicht viel und verkehrstechnisch nicht sehr aufregend, aber eben aufgrund der stets niedrigen Geschwindigkeitslimits dauert es dementsprechend lange. Ein gute Verschnaufspause goennte uns hier eine "Wapiti-Elchin", welche uns anfangs lieb...

May 14, 2011 - Escape to the Okanagan

We're used to getting a snow storm or two in May but large snow banks in the back yard at the beginning of May are a bit hard to take, especially after such a long, cold winter. With no hope of the appearance of daffodils or tulips in the garden any time soon, we headed to the Okanagan in search of leaves on trees, blossoms and maybe even some flowers! First stop was Kelowna where our friends Kevin and Barb generously gave us the use of their condo near Shannon Lake. Ellen and Jeff drove out from Vancouver and joined us for the weekend. The...

Apr 28, 2011 - At Moose Jaw, SASKATCHEWAN!!!!!

Yes, we made it back home! It's so nice to be back, of course...... except.... should I say it --- THE WEATHER! Oh well, ya can't do much about that. But it sure is nice to be catching up with family and friends for a few days anyway. We got another call to do some 'floating' (cover-off) for Holiday Retirement. So we are off to Brandon, Manitoba to work at Riverheights Terrace for a few weeks -- until they get some co-managers hired. I see today that the No. 1 highway is closed due to a blizzard and icy roads -- hope that's all cleared up...

Apr 20, 2011 - Arrived safe and sound in Kelowna

Yes, we arrived safe and sound in Kelowna...... it is still raining!!! but supposed to go to 18 or 19 for the weekend, here's hoping! We have a beautiful view from our kitchen table, looking out over the fields and off into the mountains. The fellow here said the mountains were green yesterday, but today, they are white (snow!). We're in a cute little campground, only about 12 sites. They make all sorts of jams and jellies here and have their own website for that -- www.caromoomel.com. They gave us a little jar to sample "Cherry Jam with...

Nov 8, 2010 - Day 1 Kelowna to Coquitlam

We'll be leaving home at 4:00 a.m. (yuk...) Our plan is to take our time over the Connector thru to Merritt and then over the Coquihalla on to Hope for Breakfast. After a leisurely breakfast stop at the Home Restaurant, we'll continue our driving portion of the holiday into Coquitlam. There we'll be visiting with Michelle and the kids. (Sean is away in L.A. attending a Film Convention.) We'll update our visit with photos and I'm sure a few stories from Summer, Kiefer, Phoenix and Harmony. Til next time.....
