My last post was just painful to try and prepare to post using the blogger editor… I have now just downloaded Open Live Writer!! I am hoping that this will be just as easy to use as the Live writer program!!
..so onwards and upwards…
We are down to our last few weeks here at Nk’mip..just trying to get a few chores done..
from washing the truck ..
to defrosting the fridge..
We have had a few happy hours over at the
Tucker knows exactly where the ‘cookies’
We had a ‘day trip’ to the big town of Penticton..
Steve and Dianne needed to do a few errands..so we all loaded in the truck and made the trek to the ‘big city’..
They were kind enough to treat us for lunch..
Our first time at a Craft Brew pub..
Beer and Pizza..the choices were a bit
strange but we all managed to decide on
ones that were actually very tasty!
one with Siracha chicken and greek yogurt
and the other one had beef brisket and
..after lunch we headed back towards Osoyoos
but not before stopping at just a few wineries along the way..
Blasted Church was the first one..
but they are only open Monday to Friday?
not to worry there are plenty more along the
Next stop was Hidden Chapel..the woman that was doing
the pouring of wine was a ‘hoot’..quite the personality!
from discussing having wine for breakfast to ‘chewy beer?’
only has enough room to seat eight!
Steve and Dianne made a purchase and we were on to the next stop..
Road 13..it’s all about the dirt!
the castle was closed for renovations but the tasting was being
done in the Executive Lounge ..another free tasting and there was even some bread to share..we needed something to absorb the alchol?
We both made purchases here..
and onwards to our last stop..
Church and State Winery..this one was started over on Vancouver Island at Brentwood Bay and they have a collection of wines called ‘Lost inhibitions’..
This was the only winery that we had to ‘pay to taste’ $8?..but if you purchase two bottles they don’t charge..I purchased my two bottles..no tasting charge..Dianne bought one bottle and her tasting charge was also voided…
the bottles all have funny sayings on them..and the wine doesn’t taste too bad either!!
I won’t disclose what the two I purchased say on them…some not nice words not fit for print!..
so there you have our ‘April fools day’ all corked into a few nice bottles of wine!..stay tuned for more..
