A Canadian Adventure - Day 56

Wednesday 27 September 2017

Around Kelowna, and back to Vancouver

A lovely sunny day for the completion of our journey back to Shak's house in Vancouver, which we now discover has a mountainous backdrop.

We started with an interesting stroll along Kelowna's waterfront, followed by visits to GiObean café and to the Japanese gardens. The town proved to be a pleasant place with some interesting sculptures, including one of Ogopogo, Okanagan Lake's very own version of the Loch Ness Monster.

Then we drove to Merritt, a sparse town that offered Charlie his final top up, and a roadside lunch spot free from juggernauts.

Reaching Shak's soon after 4.30 gave us time for a cuppa before heading back down to the Olive Garden restaurant for a re-run of our first night here nearly eight weeks ago. Another lovely occasion, with Sandy, Debbie, Colin, Megan, Mohammed, Chrissie and Shakeel in attendance. Many thanks, Shak.

7 km around Kelowna, and about 370 km for Charlie.

Love that Canada has its own Nessie!

Ahhhh super photos. The autumn sunshine has been here too, on and off, so I hope it's there to welcome you home.
