Okanagan Thanksgiving Long Weekend

I was back in the Okanagan over the Thanksgiving Long Weekend. Took in the East Bench with Kevin, tasted many great wines at the Okanagan Wine Festival Grand Finale in Penticton with Kevin, Tina, Marc and Mo, ate some yummy goat gelato with Kendra and attended a painting party at Kendra's new studio on Bernard Street in downtown Kelowna. You can check out all the photos on Flickr. Also, check out Kendra's webpage for upcoming watercolour painting classes. Links to the right.

The 2007 Vanner Hike season is almost over. There is a slim chance we will be able to get in one more autumn hike. Check out the blog for more details and links to Flickr photos.

Shoes pounded the pavement as hard breathing became apparent in the crisp black air.
Silhouettes of naked trees dew closer as if their roots were pulling them forward.
Wet mist hung in the branches.
The movement of the shoes slowed and the rustle of dried, decaying leaves was heard.
Not breathing, the figure stood and the sounds of the surrounding life could be heard whispering through the tree branches and echoed off the cliffs and the waters surface.
Scared by what may lie in the forest or await by the ocean side, the person was confused by the haunting peace that was felt by the encompassing atmosphere.
A fog horn bellowed through the thick moist air.
They began to walk steadily forward to the opening in the forest.
When leaving the woods and the ocean side, they felt a slight relief but a long to return.

Riding down the road in her Honda Accord,
All the way up to freezing Prince George.
With Claire you'll never, never be bored

She's not like you and/or me.
She sees things others don't see.
She's Vision Girl.

If you have a mark or a special eyeball,
Claire will point it out and share it with all.
You may not even see it at all

It's not up to you and/or me.
She sees things others don't see.
She's Vision Girl
