Today was the last leg of our journey. We arrived home after 16 weeks and 25,165 km. It was a beautiful sunny day for our drive through the Okanagan Valley.
Osoyoos, where we spent last night is a favorite wintering spot for folks from northern Alberta and BC, and from farmers escaping the winters of Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The place is packed with RVs and Motor Homes all winter long. It is also the heart of wine country with vineyard after vineyard after vineyard – and lots of orchards.
We have been over this road in whole or in part many times over the years but today I took the time to take some photos for my last blog.
We even stopped at the viewpoint south of Vernon overlooking the Coldstream Valley; a place we have driven by hundreds of times.
A half hour later we were home – to over three months of mail, 45 missed phone calls, 17 messages since I last checked them, overgrown shrubs and hedges, weedy flowerbeds, appointments, meetings and schedules. Well, it was fun while it lasted.
PS. My two favorite signs. Make that three: We never figured out what this one meant. There was no roundabout up ahead. I’ve had fun writing this blog. I hope you have enjoyed reading it. Thanks for sharing the journey. Janet and John
