Back Home

Last Thursday we left on a trip to see Sonja in Kelowna. We had a very good time and the weather was outstanding. The Coquihalla was a joy to drive both ways. Of course I only have to sit in the passenger seat and enjoy the scenery. It was very beautiful with snow still on the mountains. We had planned to leave a week earlier but the weatherman had a storm in store so we delayed our trip a week and we are sure glad we did.
On Thursday Sonja cooked a great dinner and then we relaxed. Friday was a shopping day and Saturday night we played Rumoli with Sonja's friends. We had a really good time but I don't think we will be invited to play again because Cliff won most of the nickles we played with. ☺
Sunday afternoon we visited Friends from Kelowna we used to camp with in Arizona and had a look at their beautiful Motorhome and new Jeep. I was very envious ☺. We could not stay long because we were invited to a barbecue at Sonja's friend's place. We had some nice wine and then some great tasting rib steaks that Herb barbecued with corn, baked potato and a green salad.
During our stay Cliff hiked twice with Sonja and her friends. I held down the fort while they were gone.
The ferry ride home was very pleasant on the "New to us" "Coastal Renaissance" and the weather was still sunny. Getting up this morning was a different story... it was raining and had rained a lot overnight. Hopefully the sun will make an appearance soon again.
It was great to have a break from the "Everyday Same"
Good night everybody ☺

It sounds like you had a great time, as well as a break from routine. That's good for everyone now and then.

Sounds like you had a lot of fun, is Sonja a daughter?
