Keremeos bound…

 

Three hundred and thirty eight kilometers from our house is the small town of Keremeos and the home of Doug’s brother, Ron and his wife Karen…

We are spending the weekend in this tiny town on the Similkameen River..we have been here numerous times since they moved here in 1999..

We left before 6 am this morning and arrived at 10 am…the drive was uneventful..the only snow we saw was at the Alison Pass Summit…2011_11_11

IMG_7377The Remembrance Day Service was a lovely tribute to all the veterans…and was well attended by the citizens of Keremeos…

some think that Remembrance Day is..

  • a day off of work
  • a day to sleep in
  • a day to make ‘double time ‘ since it is deemed a statutory holiday..

For us it was a day thinking of all the veterans who  served in all the wars to give us the freedom we have today…

So this was our way of saying “thank-you” for your military service.

..the balance of our day was filled with conversation, food and more food… …and now we are all relaxing watching TV.


We did have a small crisis though..no internet access…Karen made a call to her ‘computer go to guy’ in Saskatchewan  (us in blogville have ‘Rick’ and she has ‘Brian’)

Crisis averted..now we are a lined up with our laptops!!..

 

Doug checked the Highway Cam website this evening and there has been a ‘dump of snow’..on Highway 3…(the  way home.).good thing we are here till Sunday....stay tuned for more from Keremeos…

    We stumbled upon a very nice ceremony for Veterans Day ourselves in Lebanon,TN tonight! I only had my phone camera so I'm not quite sure how it's all going to work out with those pictures...

  2. With that dump of snow, it must be comforting to have a Jeep. Or you could hitch the Jeep to Tucker and let him mush you home. ;c)
