Today is our daughter-in-law’s birthday, Happy Birthday Franneca, hope you had a great day.

It was very cold this morning, just above freezing, so John wasn’t in a real rush to get out and hook the trailer up - it was about 10:30 by the time we pulled out of Birch Grove RV Park. We really enjoyed the park and it’s beautiful setting, it would be an idyllic summer spot.

The drive today was again beautiful with many ups and downs, the highest pass was 5065”, it’s not the going up that is so bad but the coming down! Again there were lots of twists and turns along the way and it was quite a long downhill run into Osoyoos but it was a pretty drive.

Coming Down Into Osoyoos

There are many, many wineries in the area and lots of fruit/vegetable stands so I am looking forward to checking out the stands and hopefully a few wineries.

We arrived at Desert Gem RV Resort in Oliver about 3:30 and have booked in for a week. It is a nice park with cement pads and currently is quite busy. They have good wi-fi so tonight is catching up, it sure doesn’t take long to get behind on my blog and pictures when I can’t post it every day.

I called Janet when we got here and they were just on the way back from a trip to Vernon so came over about 6 for a drink, then the four of us went out for dinner. The weather is supposed to turn cold and wet in the next day or two so they might head out tomorrow instead of Saturday so I’m glad we caught up with them today. It was good to see them again and get caught up on happenings since we saw them in July at Green Acres. We are looking forward to spending some time with them when we get to the island.

It’s about bed time so I am going to call it quits as it has been a long day. And so ends another great gift of a day and we look forward to another nice day tomorrow.
