Osoyoos, BC is a beautiful area in the Okanogan Valley
and we were fortunate to attend an "Escape RV" rally there.
This was one of our main reasons for travelling across the continent
and it was well worth being there for this company's costumer appreciation weekend.
More than 140 Escapes were there!!! There were 13 ft., 15 ft., 17 ft., 19 ft., 21 ft., and 5th wheel
|Our's is the one to the far left|
There were wine tours, greet and meet meals, pancake breakfasts, pot luck dinners, and more which helped us connect with other "Escapees" and make many new friends.
After taking our trailer to the manufacturer in Chilliwack (a short trip from Osoyoos) for some small repairs and retrofitting, I was treated
to a garden coffee party by some very dear ladies who live in that area and whom I've learned to "know" from blogging over the past few years.
They are the sweetest people and I felt SO honoured to be able to meet with them.
If you have read my blog posts you know who they are!!!!

This was my first time meeting Judy and Ellen (Ellen drove from Seattle just for this little party - what a gift!).
Kathy arranged the whole thing and made delicious scones with devonshire cream, jam and a beautiful fresh fruit platter.
She set the table, complete with china and silverware and served hot coffee in pretty mugs!
Judy made a delicious fruit dip, and Lovella brought the gorgeous peonies.
It was such fun and I felt like I was home.
They showered me with unexpected gifts and their friendship.
|My trailer table never looked so pretty!!|
These women have been such an inspiration and blessing to me in more ways than they will ever know.
They are all part of the famous Mennonite Girls Can Cook blog and cookbooks!!!
One day I hope to meet them ALL.
After leaving them, the farmer and I picked up our good as new little trailer and started heading East!
Our overnight campground was breathtakingly beautiful - Skihist Provincial Park
near Lytton, BC
|View from the back of our campsite - notice the train track alongside the mighty Fraser River!|
From here we travelled through tunnels and mountain passes,
landing in Golden, BC for the first night in June.
June 1st has been a good day - my sister informed us that her 5th
grandchild was born this morning - Lela Sarah Ann.
We are surely blessed beyond what we deserve ........
Till next time ......... feeling the warmth of friendship and family.
