Autumn Views

I am on my way back to NWT after two weeks in the Okanagan; I am leaving M to finish up all the packing as we sold our strata and bought a new home at the north end of Penticton near Lake Okanagan. He’s very organised about it all and will be ready to go when the movers arrive in eleven days but it’s too bad that I can’t be with him to help out with this part. When I come back to Penticton for winter break, it will be to a new address. But in the meantime, a few more Okanagan views.

The trees are blowing their summer coats!
Leaves finding their way into Lake Okanagan.
No more swimming until next spring.
One more late rose.

Happy Monday; happy week. 🙂

Skaha Lake

It was another hot day today as we shuffle, literally, through this extreme “heat dome” that has settled over most of western North America. Anything more than a shuffle is to invite heat stroke, heart attacks, and profound, sweat-soaked enervation.

But going out early will work. M and I avoided the soaring 42°C (108F) temps that occurred later in the day by leaving for our walk before 8. When we stopped for a rest and water drink, this is the view we saw.

Even in early morning, there’s a heat haze.

We are very fortunate to live across the street from this park with its fabulous swimming beach, and in the upcoming weeks, I plan to spend a lot of time there with several good books.

Stay cool everyone. 🙂
