'another month of photos, here we come..

Day 213: our new home away from home..Riverhaven Rv Park, in Hedley,BC on the banks of the Similkameen River.


Day 214: 'What a croc?'..nice view!!..going to miss this..but WE will be back!!


Day 215: there is a storm a 'brewin'?.. Keremeos, BC


Day 216: a 'boy and his ball?'


Day 217: fresh sliced peaches and vanilla bean ice cream…great dessert on a hot day!


Day 218: the 'fastest shredder in the west?'..a big box of old bills and papers met their 'maker' today...adios!


Day 219: 'cookin' with gas?'..we have three 20 pound propane tanks ..two on the trailer and one on the sundeck..guess what?..they are all empty or pretty darn close to being empty!!..geesh!!!


Day 220: you know it is a slow picture day..when you are busy 'watching paint dry?' actually the deck was painted when we were away on holidays! what a difference a coat of paint can make..much better than the peeling paint we have had for the last few years!!


Day 221: roughin' it along the Coldwater River


Day 222: Sunshine and solitude..perfection!


Day 223: hitched up and heading towards home


Day 224: ' False alarm?' life in the big city..we live very close to a fire-hall and police station so sirens are a common occurrence. Today though, there was an emergency at the lake across the street from our condo....the red van from the search and rescue was towing a 'zodiac'..first time I have ever seen that..this incident didn't last too long though..within a half hour everyone was gone!!


Day 225: 'rays of sunshine?' the view from the dog park this morning..
