We're off on holidays tomorrow, after our nephew's christening. Fairmont and Kelowna await us. We look forward to blue lakes, green mountains, trying to spot Ogopogo, and returning with a trunk full of wine. Hopefully the skies won't be too smoky (those poor people who've had to leave their homes!)

I haven't stayed in Kelowna for an length of time since I was a child. I'm excited to experience it with my boys. I remember the excitement of the waves and the beach, the waterslides and pools...things we never saw in Calgary. Even the food that seemed to taste so different, even though it was still my Mum cooking it. And those little boxes of cereal. Those were the only times I was allowed to have sugary cereal.

It seems we're having a busy summer (birthdays, reunion, babies), and I look forward to posting pictures when we return.

Have a great vacation -- we had a week away at a cottage with Munchkin, and it was really nice (if tiring) to just get away and be all together.

Don't know if you're still on holiday, but I hope you had (are having) a wonderful time. I followed your links bc I know next to nothing about western Canada/British Columbia, and was fascinated by Ogopogo! I'd never heard of it!! Hope you see it!
