We have had an absolutely fantastic time during our 10 week swing through beautiful British Columbia. Through Karen’s organizational skills we ended up doing five house sits in five different locations around southern BC.
We ran the gambit of animal personalities from dogs that were deaf, to obsessed with squirrels, to chickens that were just a little too curious at times.
To blind Truffle who stole our hearts and melted away any self control we had.
Our last stop in Kelowna was the icing on the cake. We enjoyed a wonderful dog, Murphy, and had the opportunity to explore the area in and around Kelowna.
The Myra Canyon Trestle Trail was spectacular. It is so nice to see when groups work together to preserve and make accessible areas of such history and natural beauty. We managed to walk to 7 of the trestles and one of the tunnels. Very cool.
Another awesome aspect of our road trip was being able to catch up with a number of friends that we have not seen in way too long and to start to build some new friendships. Who knew we had so many connections in BC.
In Salmon Arm we were able to catch up with our friend Kevin who gave us the royal treatment. I am not sure about the 6AM hot yoga class, but the afternoon on Shuswap Lake then a morning at the shooting range was an absolute joy and a fantastic way to relax.
Without a doubt we will be planning another long slow trip through British Columbia. The weather, along with the great diversity of landscape, make it a top choice to explore further. In the meantime we are busy repacking and getting ready to return to travelling by air. Montreal, here we come!
