Post Christmas post…

 

A busy Christmas morning here in Keremeos..up early..feed the animals..open some gifts..and begin our Christmas dinner preparations…

a nice day…dinner early..and then relaxing for the balance of the day…

Boxing day began early also…this farm/ranch  life style is not conducive to sleeping in…up by 6 am..

and we were all heading out the door before 8 am…heading towards Okanagan Falls, to visit Karen’s sister and her husband and all the nieces and nephews…

photo opportunities were aplenty…

first stop was a rest area about 10 miles from Keremeos…

Yellow Lake..frozen over….

We left Ron and Karen in Okanagan Falls to continue visiting and we headed towards Osoyoos…

We were interested in checking out N’kimp RV park..we have only stayed there in the summer and were curious about  how full it was in the winter…along the way we stopped at

Vaseux  Lake..just outside Okanagan Falls..mirrored perfection

The RV park was pretty well full…only a few empty spots in the ‘snowbird’ area…nice and quiet..a far cry from how busy it is in the summer…
We made a stop at the local park so Tucker could have a run and chase his ball….

  2. Wow, what a lot of diverse photos! I love your new header photo! John was born in Oliver. His father's father had a farm there. John's dad now lives in Penticton.

  4. The Oliver, Osoyoos area is one of the places we would consider if we ever got ourselves organized enough to leave Ontario. Ever since living in the Okanagan Valley in the early 70's for a few years I've always wanted to move back to BC. Nice photos

  5. Nice header picture of Tucker! What gorgeous winter scenery you traveled through, and how nice to see the sheep. It sure beats the view out my window. :)

  7. Beautiful!

    What an awesome way to spend the day on a bit of nature roadtrip! Many other people were probably disgruntled about having to drive by all that beauty and didn't even notice it. Thanks for sharing the photo's.

    And you even had enough time to get some work done! Nice floor!

    Now get ready for a Happy New Year!!!
