On the move?

April 4-15, 2016

One could say where did the past six months go, but to

us there were times that the days just seemed to run one into the other..

024

yes the sun finally did come out and the blue sky along with it

023

Steve and Dianne stayed a few extra days and we made the most of our time together..

there was time for Rumikube

002

and just a ‘few drinks?’

003

005

winery touring yet again..The Blasted Church Winery was closed for renovations?

009

but at least Tickleberries was open for business!

012

We, of course went out for lunch once or twice?

Papa’s Firehall Bistro on a cloudy day..

022

016

nachos and beer and a quick tour of the beer making facilities in the basement..

018

We walked the main street of Osoyoos and made the customary stop at the ‘must see’ Home Hardware’..

Steve managed to find one item he ‘had no intention of purchasing?’..brought back a few memories for all of us!

025

We will be using these ‘items’ soon enough!

Another lunch date at the Owl Pub..tell me why we never stopped here before?

029

The food was delicious!

027

028

chicken salad for  me and Doug had an Owl Burger..

Meantime back at the park ..the snow birds have begun migrating back!

Russ and Barb and Saphira returned..

032

034

a bright, shiny new Rv for them!!

they even brought us a gift..

a  ‘sign’ and two chocolate bars!!

036

with the snow birds arriving..

035

it also meant  our visit with Steve and Dianne was coming to an end..

037

yet again we say ‘so long’ as they make the trek towards Fort Langley..

040

our paths will cross again this summer so it won’t be long and we will see them again!

038

‘there goes my ‘cookie supply?’

041

Time for us start the ‘to do list’ ..these wheels will be rolling soon!

first thing was to remove the wooden deck and stairs..we need to get use to the rv stairs again!

042

the slide went in..just to make sure it still works..and an application of lubricant..

043

flush the hot water tank and change out the anode rod.

046

time for a new one?

048

tires checked, tanks dumped and finally after six months to day we are the ones ‘leaving’!

050

the boys are loaded and we said our ‘so longs’ to our neighbours..

049

we survived our first winter!!..

051

just a short travel day today..only 53 kilometers..

052

up Richter Pass and down into the Simillkameen Valley

053

055

over the one-way bridge and the fast flowing river..

056

and we are back in ‘blooming Keremeos’,,

059

065

parked in our usual spot..

068

time to re-group and re-pack..

Stay tuned for more from Keremeos!
