FINALLY - Vacation Pics & Video!!!
« on: September 06, 2006, 04:45:31 pm »
We had a great time in BC.¬  The weather was hot! 8) We started off going to visit a friend in Fernie for 2 days, then headed out to Salmon Arm, then onto the Okanagan...¬ 

Fernie was fun, cute little spot nestled nicely in the mountains.¬  Salmon Arm was BY FAR our favorite, the campground there was so amazing ;D¬  The Okanagan was fun, but it's much more 'touristy' now, than it was when I used to go there every summer as a kid... :-\¬ 

Kate was a really good girl on our trip, except for waking us up at 5:30am nearly every morning¬  ::) Little STINKER!!! :D¬  But, the good thing is when we're camping, we're in bed early anyhow!¬  Kate did LOTS of swimming, met lots of other dogs - and I think it's fair to say she thoroughly enjoyed the trip!!! The most amazing thing happened out there though - a lot of people knew what kind of dog Kate was!!!¬  I'm so used to explaining everytime someone meets her, so that was kinda neat ;D

She is such a great dog to travel with, as soon as the truck starts moving she's asleep¬  :) One day we drove 6 hours and she slept the entire way (except for pee breaks of course)...

I've attached a whole bunch of pics (they didn't all fit on this first post - there's more on the next few). The titles of the pictures pretty much explain themselves.¬  There's also a video of Kate swimming in Okanagan Lake (in Summerland):

She is so silly looking when she swims, she slithers like a snake through the water¬  ::)¬  And, I get a complete KICK out of her back legs - she looks like a beaver treading water :D

This nice little trip is exactly what we needed (as a family).¬  I sure wish it would have lasted longer (but at the same time) I'm also glad to be home, and back to BPO for that matter!!!¬  ;D ;D ;D
