Road Notes

A spur of the moment decision to see my Dad altered intentions to work on Monday. Faster than saying “change of plans”, we found ourselves on a 3 day road trip to the Okanagan. Below, a smattering of photos – tomorrow, a detailed travelogue.

Road Trip

Miraculously, a window of mid-week opportunity opened in my schedule. With summer threatening to breath her last gasp – the only sensible thing to do is take a road trip. This time tomorrow I’ll be 250 miles away enjoying all the Okanagan Valley has to offer. Visiting family, a little wine tasting, exploring back roads, and hopefully witnessing a thunderstorm or two. I’ll be back Friday – undoubtedly with pictures and a full report.

Until then, a link to a post written about my hometown…..
