We've been busy with family visits primarily, so probably not much of interest to anyone other than family. Have done a lot of touring around with my Uncle Curtis, which has been fun.
Visiting my uncle and sister entails travelling between Swan Lake, which is located on the northern outskirts of Vernon, all the way to either Rutland or Kelowna. With traffic and construction (which is nuts ALL THE TIME by the way), it can take us anywhere from 45 to 60 minutes to reach our destination.
The trade-off, however, is the drive itself, which is absolutely beautiful. The scenary between Vernon and Kelowna is unbelievable - Kalamalka Lake and the Okanagan hills are something you never tire of seeing. I'll post some pictures when I have a chance to pull over safely and take a few shots. The shot below is the view looking down from the hills towards Swan Lake.
To my running buddies, Terry and I have managed to fit in a few runs here.
The last run we went up the hills across the highway from the resort as we thought it would be a more scenic run.
Once we dragged our butts UP, UP, UP (with me bitching the entire time) to the summit, it was a beautiful view.
Last night was Kyle Duncan's birthday, and they had a bash at their place. Norma hired the chef from The Rise to cook the meal, and fifteen of us enjoyed an unbelievable feast.
