Sunrise and sunset

 

We are staying in the town of Osoyoos, B.C. Osoyoos is a growing community in the heart of Desert Wine Country. The semi-arid climate produces very hot, dry summer days and mild days in the winter months.

Osoyoos Lake is the warmest fresh water lake in Canada and it provides great summertime activities. If you ever visit this community you must try the selection for fresh fruits and vegetable that are grown locally. There is also a fine selection of wineries in the area that are a must to visit.

Our campsite that is home for the next month is located at Nk'mip Rv Park. This is one of the South Okanagan's largest and most prestigious parks with over 300 sites. It is on the shore of Osoyoos Lake and two kilometers from the town of Osoyoos.

The word Nk'mip is pronounced in-ka-meep[we call it nin-kum-poop}. Nk'mip means: flat bottom land at the mouth of a river or creek.

This is our second year in a row coming and staying at this RV park. It is a nice park with large sites, if you are in the upper part. The sites that are on the water's edge are very close together.

Our site overlooks the lake and we have a great view of the sunsets. It can be windy but the sun is almost always shining. Our days are spent on the beach or in the water. Relaxing is on the top of our list of things to do here.

Today was a typical day, coffee outside, breakfast and then we went to the beach. The temperature today was 35.9 degrees..a lovely day for our usual activities.

Doug is heading back to the lower mainland tomorrow and not very happy about it..but work is calling his name. He will return on August 14th and be back in the routine of vacation mode.

This will leave just Tucker and I to our own devices..what on earth will we do all day????..I am sure I can think of a few things that include a lawn chair, air mattress and a book. We will miss him but he will be back..duty calls...

As the sun is going down over Osoyoos Lake we are very thankful to be able to experience this beautiful sunset...28 more sunsets to go..
