October 7th

Today we walk to Lake Country, about 40m on the trail I still do not have a photo of.   We are going to get mani/pedis, our first since Barrie, ON and Bob becoming a TOAD.

We select  Viva Nails, good reviews and there Covid 19 precautions seem OK.

We are the only clients, gotta love that!   

By now you all know we have to reward ourselves with a visit to Woody’s Pub.   We like it there 🙂

Dinner at home, thought I’d show it from

Way more cloudy and gloomy here than I anticipated.  Not a fan.

For a WTF   

                            How can this be remotely safe???


October 06, much anticipated Roo Day!

Allan found out about the Kangaroo Farm before we left Ontario, his mandate was to get there before it closes for the season Thanksgiving weekend, and take a photo of him petting one.       Made it!  Love the “use common sense, we all know what 6 feet looks like.”

The entrance person tell us where to find the Sugar Gliders, we don’t even know that they are!

Come early their website advises….

At the entrance, they give you a bag of popcorn to feed.  These guys woke up!

From the first time Allan learned of this farm, he wanted to pat a kangaroo.  We thought they’d be a lot taller, Allan improvises!!More patting!  Roo Pat

         Allan is again disappointed, we didn’t see a gator 

                                Next up…Wallabies

Allan gets photos with the cuties… He was a little nervous petting her as she was with joey but it did go well.

Interesting fact:  All wallabies are marsupials or pouched mammals. Wallaby young are born tiny, helpless, and undeveloped. They immediately crawl into their mothers’ pouches where they continue to develop after birth—usually for a couple of months.

                                               I get the world’s largest rodentThey walk around single file with the one in the back touching the front ones bum.

Breakfast time!

Breakfast for bunnies 

       and for the skunk

Last stop, exotic birds & Sugar Gliders 

      Sugar Gliders

Interesting fact:  The sugar glider is a small, omnivorous, arboreal, and nocturnal gliding possum belonging to the marsupial infraclass. The common name refers to its predilection for sugary foods such as sap and nectar and its ability to glide through the air, much like a flying squirrel.

As they are nocturnal, the handler keeps him in the blue pouch taking him out just to show and back in he goes.

And that concludes our visit to   

Tonight’s dinner, Keto Pizza – yummy


Monday, October 05th Kelowna

Today we explore Kelowna.

First up, Woohoo!!    

Kelowna does not want you to share your parking stub, they add your licence plate to  ensure that you don’t    

We start our walk in the Rhapsody Plaza       

   We use the boardwalk to get downtown


We select a Mexican restaurant for lunch.

On our way back to Bob we stop to watch a tractor loading up a boat.

That’s a wrap!

October 03, 2020

Today is walk to Lake Country which is closer to us than Kelowna.  Kelowna = not walkable.

Kelowna Airport is about 2km from here, it is one of the smallest airports I’ve seen.     Should have taken a photo of the railroad track converted to trail, we walked along to get to Lake Country.  Did get the fruit trees.

I agree, this isn’t a remarkable day to memorialize,   BUT…  our destination is Woody’s Pub.  What did we find there? This smile tell it all!

  Finish off with a funny     


Winery day, October 02, 2020

First stop Arrowleaf Cellars in Lake Country, neighbouring town to Kelowna

It is incredibly scenic.

Our first, wine tasting experience The samples wines were light to medium bodied wines, we enjoy full more.  Deb pointed us in the right direction. 

Next stop Grey Monk Estate Winery

Didn’t take a photo of the tasting but it was similar to winery #1.  Purchased wine here, no photo.  I am slacking off. We decide to impose a 2 winery a day limit!

October 01, Thursday move in day

Here we are again, back with Bailey this time.  Through the gate we go!  Disconnect Bob, drive to our spot, we’re in 🙂

Take a walk around the grounds, the park borders on Duck Lake aka Ellison Lake.

Duck Lake    has ducks!

There is a goldfish pond

Stuff to do not that we are brave enough to join in. Sad, the hot tub isn’t open.

I think, hope, we’ll enjoy Winter here.  Lots to explore starting with wineries.

September 30, exploring we will go

We passed this on the way to Vernon and said we had to come back.  Here we are!

Allan finally found a bear…

Yummy, at least the chef thinks so   

All “kidding” aside this is the smartest goat ever!

We are leaving when we see the goat and stop to get a photo.   He starts walking up the ramp and poses     

He then proceeds to the bike wheel and with his paw turns it…Attached is a pail he lowers and raises.  Lowers to get treats…

Now watching us… Come back suckers!! 

It works, here Allan comes!   

    Well hurry up!

Buying the treats 

   Filling the pail,

Up goes the pail, I tried to video but some how pushed the wrong button and got nothing.  He gobbled the contents up and sent the pail back down.

Trust me, this is the smartest goat ever!

Next stop…    Planet Bee   

Next, next stop

     Fruit, fruit!


Kyle!  Would this convince you to add hot sauce???Next, next, next stop  White Spot, my favourite burger place.An eventful day!



What did we get ourselves into day?

Start the day       feeling optimistic

  Beautiful country

Getting closer     

Here we are! Allan charms the gate keeper, to not only allow us in, but also disclose what our site is.  # 063  Here it is!  Home for the Winter. 

The site is roomy enough, getting in, because it is angled is easy… leaving well that will be another thing.

Feeling a little relieved.

Sep 28 heading to Vernon

Trivia!     Today, 2018 our offer for Bailey was accepted. 🙂


Last day here and we get neighbours from Ontario. Good bye Spring Creek…

See this cutie while fueling     


There is snow on them there hills!!     



   Love these signs, not so much! Better safe

Welcome to…     

More pretty-ness

Sincerely hope to NEVER have to use one of these

The foliage and the super cute dude 


    Rock bra


Golden,  just passing through.

Good news!   

Allan’s favourite!  Tunnels, these are snow sheds.  Two in rapid succession.

Rogers Pass (real time camera)                

Last of the 3 snow sheds, they are very well lit.

Found our construction 

Motoring on by       Revelstoke

Attractions along the way

Finally got a photo of the train   

 This place looks like fun, we’re close enough – we’ll be back to check it out.

Swan Lake RV Resort  We’re here for 3 days waiting to get into our Winter park on October 01st.

This ended up being the quietest park we’re ever been in.

Tomorrow we’re going to check out our Winter park.  When we booked they talked about how tight the park is but with no other options we decided to take our chances.  We’re a little anxious!


September 26, Saturday

Start the day with a big win!!    It will be a great day!!

Hope the weather smartens up.  Scheduled today = Grizzle Paw Brewery, this time the actual brewery.  Allan wants a mug and Brenda told us how good their hot sauce is so will pick that up as well.

We buy our goodies and head up.  The store and the brewery are on the     ground floor             

2nd floor lots of beer storage.  3rd floor restaurant.   Up we go

We sit outside, wow we’re high up.

Unlike the downtown location, they have raspberry beer 🙂 I haven’t had it for years, hum not as good as I remembered.     

Lovely views

Three Sisters   

Back to Bailey Fire time 

Another great day comes to a close.
