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…


Holding Down the Farm

T’s away this weekend at a writers’ conference, Nollind’s off fixing a roof during the day, so it’s up to me to look after things. It’s a lot of responsibility, especially without Logan, but I think I’m up for it. He was a good coach and mentor, my Borador buddy.

I’m starting to get used to him not being around, the feel of the space he left behind. He was a busy guy so the house is much quieter without him. And trips to the barn just not the same. The horses and cats are my 4-legged companions now.

T and Nollind have been taking me almost everywhere with them. Not sure if it’s for me or for them but I’m loving it. Even got to sit up front on a trip to the recycling depot. I was very well behaved which I’m hoping they’ll remember when it comes time to drive south this winter.

Yes, we’re going south! Or planning to. I love Sid time in the desert (Sid’s our fifth wheel trailer). I don’t know how I’ll possibly tell you all the stories every week but I’ll do my best to channel Logan and give you what might be his take on the places we travel. Sounds like there might be some new boondocking locations on the winter map.

Well, I’d best get back to work. This farm won’t guard itself!
