My first day in Osoyoos was a good one. The weather was HOT! I can’t believe that just a few days ago I was scrambling to find cold weather gear!
One of my contracts picked up speed this week, so I was able to put in a full day of work (if only it would keep up steady like this for the next four months!). Having the attention span of a gnat, I like to break my work day into roughly one hour chunks, then take a break away from the computer. I work a much longer day that way, but I find I am more productive.
For one of the breaks I took today, I headed to the beach, just a couple of minutes from my spot. There are a bunch of ducks who like to lie around on the sand and I had fun watching them for a spell.
For my lunch break, I decided to walk into town to see if there was anything practical within reasonable walking distance (nope). I made sure to capture this sign placed just before the entrance to the RV park:
Longtime readers will not be surprised that my reaction to this sign was Ooh! rather than Ew!
I have to say that this geographic area astounds me. There is no doubt I am in a desert, and many people practice xeriscaping, but there is still this lush abundance that fits in with what I think the Mediterranean coast would look like. On my walk, I saw cacti in one garden and grapes in the next!
Sometime in the middle of all this, I met some more blog readers (thank you for stopping in!) and soon as I hit publish, I’m off to the pool. This Okanagan stay is off to a good start and I hope it stays that way!Share on Facebook
