Twenty-five and Counting

… lakes that is. Yup, another four since last Fur-iday’s blog and this trip isn’t over. I’d tell you all about them but we’ve been on the road all day, I just finished a long walk and dinner, and that means nap time. Don’t want to get off schedule. Tune in next week for the full lake tally and tales!

Lake Country

I’m on the road again this week and quite certain I’ll have increased my lake count significantly by the time we’re back home. We’re currently camped in an area called…wait for it…Lake Country. It’s definitely a thing this year…lakes!

The packing usually starts a day or two ahead for these trips so this one kind of took me by surprise. With T busy at work right now, nothing really moved from house to trailer until the morning we left. Surprise! We were off to BC!

It was dark by the time we rolled into Ellison Provincial Park on Okanagan Lake but I could smell the water as soon as I hopped down from the truck…lake number 21 was close at hand! But there would be no walk that night. Turned out it was a good thing we didn’t venture out in the dark as this campground is perched atop a cliff above the lake.

Nollind is here for a sailboat race that starts tomorrow and T and I will be cheering him on from the Ellison Park cliffs before we move camp to a provincial park near Kelowna.

For now, the sun is shining and I have a bone so…

From the Road!

I know it’s the 1st Fur-iday of June and supposed to be a Logan flashback post, but I’m away from home with no access to all those great old photos so Logan will be back in July.

As for me, just like that Willie Nelson classic, I am on the road again, seeing places that I’ve never been. We left home on Wednesday morning, new trailer Simon in tow, headed for the southwest corner of Alberta and points beyond.

My Lakes and More Lakes spring continued with our first stop at Chinook Lake in the Crowsnest Pass. T was overjoyed when we got a spot right on the lake and Nollind and I were pretty happy about it too.

The weather wasn’t great, a little cool with the odd shower, but we managed to get in a hike around the lake, a walking tour of the upper part of the campground, and a morning walk in search of the local moose. We saw a bald eagle, some mergansers, and a few deer…but no moose.

After two nights at Chinook Lake we headed west this morning, over the Rockies and into BC. We’re camped waterfront again at this stop, but on a river, the Moyie.

Tomorrow is T’s birthday and I hear we’ve got company coming, dog and human, so I’m resting up in preparation for the festivities!

From what I hear we’ll still be travelling next Fur-iday, but I’ll try to report in. Until then…this is Chico…on the road…
