Today is another bright, sunny but cold day with a high of only 9C (49F) – sure would be nice to see it warm up a bit.

We drove down to Osoyoos this afternoon, it is pretty but I don’t think I would like to live in this area, just doesn’t appeal to us that much.

Coming Into Osoyoos

In checking it out on the internet I saw that temperatures here during July and August are above 30C and the fall – September and October, are supposed to be warm, so what is happening here!! We stopped at a Fruit/Vegetable stand and the lady said this is really unusual weather for here, I was going to say the cold weather seems to be following us but didn’t because she might charge me triple for bringing the cold – LOL!

From Osoyoos we took Highway 3 westbound which leads to Keremeos and the Similkameen Valley via Richter Pass, a really pretty drive. At Keremeos we picked up 3A north to just below Penticton, so while almost there went back into Penticton to get fuel. Highway 3A to Keremeos is the route we will take when we leave here, that way we cut off quite a few kilometers and don’t have to go all the way down to Osoyoos and across.

The Drive Along Highway 3 and 3A

Yellow Lake

Penticton and Lake Skaha

We stopped at Marks Work Warehouse in Penticton as I am looking for a new sweatshirt, turns out Marks only carries men’s not ladies sweatshirts – go figure! John saw a nice sweater jacket there so I bought that for him for his birthday so now he will be able to keep warm.

We got home about 6 and another quiet evening is in store. We don’t plan on doing too much the next couple of days and then maybe Tuesday we will take a drive up to Vernon and Kelowna.

And so ends another great gift of a day and we look forward to another nice day tomorrow.
