I'm Leeeeavinggg On A Jet Plaaaane..





Tomorrow morning hubby and I will be doing this.



Not looking forward to it.
I hate standing in line.
Waiting.



This is always a beautiful sight
once all the waiting is done.


Below is the Kelowna British Columbia Canada airport.


That shiny thing you see at the top of the page (above) between the mountains is the first of 2 lakes between Kelowna and Vernon that the highway travels beside.

(that's the highway that we travel winding along the side of the lake.)

These two lake photos are of Kalamalka Lake which means 'lake of many colours'. These photo's do NOT do it justice as the lake turns from jade green, torquoise, navy, bluegreen and green depending on where you are and the light at that moment.
The native indians could not have picked a better name.



Four airports later and an hour car ride we will be at our destination.

And this will be waiting for us.

This is Lake Okanagan where my daughter and her family lived up until they started building their new home in the mountains last fall.
We'll visit this place and all their friends on the lake...we have lots of
wonderful memories of family time spent on this spot.
One year we even pulled our boat from Kansas to this lake!

Can't wait to see everyone.

I will be back soon...see you then!
