We created our own long weekend by each taking a Friday and Monday off as vacation days. Destination Kentucky/Alleyne Provincial Park.
The weather forecast for the Merritt area?..not looking too promising?
oh well, we aren’t made of sugar so we don’t have to worry about melting?
What’s a bit of rain? 70% chance it won’t rain on Friday and Saturday has a 40% chance of no wet stuff. The odds are not too bad?
We were up at o’dark thirty, not exactly what someone should be doing on their birthday, but so be it!
heading east towards the town of Hope..
fuel stop at the new Flying J..gas and breakfast, one stop shopping..
about ten kilometers down this road and we were ‘home for the weekend’..
we circled the campground as there were a few choices for a campsite..but we settled on #18..
on the shores of Kentucky Lake..
..we couldn’t ask for anything better..
Doug can go fishing..
..and fishing he did..
..we had barbequed dinners..
drinks by the fire..be it..
hot chocolate and cookies..
..and of course, our signature drink, Disaronna..
..there was time for knitting..
..and this little yellow bird?
A quick campground review:
cost per night..$16
..the cleanest outhouses we have ever seen..
..and garbage and recycling pick up..
..all in all a successful ‘fourth trip’ of the season..time well spent away from home is worth all the laundry that needs doing!
..where are we going next time? Never mind the ‘where?’ what about ‘when’?
