Our quick road trip involved 830 kilometers ..round trip…
We headed east towards the town of Hope and after a quick stop for breakfast we headed north on highway #5..the Coquihalla Highway
It was a foggy, rainy drive through the mountain pass heading towards the town of Merrit….the windshield wipers kept getting in the way of the photos..we are not use to raindrops..it has been a while since we saw the wet stuff falling from the sky.
We stopped at the visitor’s center just off the Coquihalla Highway ..Tucker was a patient boy..waiting in the rain while we browsed.
We then headed east on Highway 97..the Okanagan Connector..the ear popping highway …next stop would be the town of Summerland.
We stopped at the last view point on the Okanagan Connector..great view of Okanagan Lake…time for a another photo op for the ‘Tuckmiester’
we headed along the Okanagan Lake shoreline…towards the town of Summerland..one stop …to kick a few….
yes you guessed correctly ..just a few TIRES….
DREAMS NEVER DIE..JUST THE DREAMER..DREAM ON BIGDAWG!!
A 2010 Winnebago 34 Y…..a beautiful bus…
A 2010 Winnebago Tour BD..now you are really dreaming..some one needs to slap you!!!!
move away from the ‘fancy bus’…way out of our price range..but it is fun to look and DREAM!!!
We dragged ourselves away from the DREAM BUS..and we headed towards Penticton…and our lunch stop..but not before Tucker had a swim in the lake…
we had our picnic lunch and relaxed beside Skaha Lake…next stop…Keremeos…it is Karen’s birthday!!!
the birthday girl’s choice for dinner this evening….
(doug sue karen fred annette ron)
Happy Birthday Karen..hope you had a great day!!..love ya!!
This morning we went out for breakfast to the Riverbed Bistro…
after our meal we went to the town of Cawston and home to Harkers Organic Fruit Ranch..
We went back to Ron and Karen’s and picked up Tucker and he went swimming in the Similkemeen River..Fred and Annette have a lovely home on the shore of the river and Tucker was invited to go for a ‘dip’..his favourite thing to do…free from the confines of Riverside Prison…
The Cinderella ‘signage road trip’ is coming to an end..time to head home…we headed west on HIghway 3…one dog riding in the side car of the Harley Davidson..
one “accident jam”..not nearly as nice as a ‘bear or bison jam”
So in closing…the Cinderella road trip is done…thanks for riding along….
