Peachland Highwater...

Water, water everywhere.

Sandbags line the waterfront, both here in West Kelowna

as well as in Peachland where we walk.

It is helping keeping the flooding at bay.

The weather forecast is a bit cooler for the next few days which should

slow down the melt.

Looking at the bright side, when all the water goes back to normal levels,

they will have lots more sand on their sandy beaches.



Back to West Kelowna...

Cindy and I had such fun thrifting our way back

from Nelson to Kelowna.

It was a wonderful way for me to spend a night in Nelson,

enjoying Cindy and Tim's hospitality.

It was a quick turn around trip for Cindy as she had an

appointment here.

Short, sweet and fun was had.

There was a lot of high water on our trip down, especially thru

Grand Forks.

Lots of high water here along the lake, but as we are a long ways from lake,

as well as not being near a creek,

we are high and dry.



A week in pictures...

The family, my sisters and brothers, the kids, the grandkids.
Even the dogs get into the action.
It has been a great week to be in Bull River.



In Bull River...

It great being here, seeing my family.

Some of the most fun I have is crafting with the kids.

Myla, Tyce, Sawyer, Haley and Ryker

with their parents, Amanda and Riley!

Not home on this visit is

Colby and Issac.




Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day

Finally, 2 days of sunshine...

The week has started out sunny and

even reasonably warm.

The trees finally have some leaves on them and

the flowers in their pots are growing.

It feels so good to be outside.

Lots of high water in the creeks flowing into the lake

Love seeing these different photos of Claire.

Making more pink polar bears as gifts.




Happy to see the sunshine....

It has been such a dreary spring.

Fog, rain, wind, low cloud cover, more rain and wind.

I know it is flooding in many places, even here we had had power poles knocked out and flooding.

Happy to report we will have a week of sunshine.

We didn't want to miss a chance to go on a picnic,

this sunny day by the lake was perfect.

A little crocheting, taking some photos, enjoying the lake.

It was a wonderful day.
