July 1st, 2017 Happy Canada Day!

Another trip to Osoyoos. This time was to buy more paint! But while we were there we took in the Canada Day fireworks. They didn't start until after 10 pm so we wasted some time shopping around then we had dinner at the Owl Pub on the corner of Hwy 3. As the outside seating area was quite full we shared the corner booth with two wonderful couples we never knew before. 


Left to right - Elena and Wes from West Kelowna and Pat and Paul from New Zealand. We enjoyed getting to know them over dinner. In the end we all exchanged emails and numbers in hopes that our paths with cross again in the future.



Later in the day we met up with Solange and Leo, set up our lawn chairs and waited until after 10 the for the fireworks to begin.  They were very much worth waiting for lasting for about 40 minutes.  Because Kelowna's fireworks were cancelled this year due to the high waters the beaches in Osoyoos were just packed!! It is estimated there were more than 40,000 people in attendance to take in the show! Pictures just don't do fireworks justice, but here is a little clip of the fireworks bouncing off the lake....
