Okanagan BC

My trip to Regina was officially over, but it was not yet time to pack my bags. The Mr. picked me up at the Everett, WA train station and from there we drove directly to B.C. Canada's Okanagan Valley! We were kindly invited by Droo's family to stay a couple nights with them there, during part of their one week stay at a lakeside trailer that belongs to family. We were eager to go because the Okanagan is so relaxing. The cabin has everything you need, and is just perfect for a young family and a couple of friends.

The Mr. showing us his superb diving skills. The trailer is just a few feet away from the lake, such a perfect setting!

Amazing clear water.

Who I missed second most when I was in Regina.

Baby Cake


The trailer is complete with retro lawn furniture. I love this old swing!

These grapes were growing on a trellis along the walkway, aren't they pretty?

The SS Sicamous is beached at Pentiction BC as a Museum and Theater. In Wikipedia's words:
"SS Sicamous
is a large five decked sternwheeler built by the Canadian Pacific Railway for lake service between the fruit communities of Penticton, and other towns of Kelowna and Vernon. Sicamous ran for many years connecting rail lines and areas. The vessel is beached as a museum in Penticton, BC

Pentiction has Starbucks. Cake loves coffee cups and will most likely follow closely in her father's coffee-loving footsteps!

Look at that huge water wheel!

The skies were so pretty that evening!

To Chasm and his Lady, Thank you so much for inviting us to stay with you on the lake, we had such a fun time and hope that this will be a tradition!!!
