Our Last Night Kelowna


Our great site here at Holiday Park

We spent another lovely evening at Colin and Contessa’s house.   Last night was pretty special though.   Colin prepared Copper River salmon on the grill for dinner.   Contessa made a fantastic Cesar’s salad, rice and asparagus to serve along with it.   We talked into the night out on the patio overlooking the lake.  Colin setup a warm fire and we each had a story to tell.
Colin is a well-known photographer, he is also an excellent chef.

Yes, I am recovering only to find out that Paula seems to have gotten the same malady.  Still not sure what it is but I am almost convinced it was the Canadian water J.   Time goes fast here at Holiday Park Resort.   Everyone is friendly at the pool and the Jacuzzi.   They are all interested in visiting Mexico with their rvs but don’t seem to know how to go about it exactly. 

Today, Colin took us on a tour of Kelowna through the tourist area and then to the Mission Hills Winery which sits on top of a hill overlooking the lake.   Fantastic views and wonderful sculptures are set throughout the winery.  It was a great afternoon as we looked at real estate around the lake.   Lots of money here in Kelowna.   We also dropped by the library to pick up some books that Contessa had ordered on line previously.

Tonight we are calling it an early evening after drinks and dinner so that we can prepare for our departure tomorrow.   We plan on heading out for Cranbrook, BC at 8:30 a.m.  This is a what we call an all-day drive.   We  hope to be there by 4 p.m. but I am sure I will want to stop and take a nap. 

Kevin and Ruth, here we come!
