|Highway 1 (Trans Canada Highway) heading west for Highway 3; the Hope/Princeton Highway into southern BC.|
|Beautiful roads, offering beautiful scenery.|
|Manning Park - about half way from the southern BC coast to the Okanagan Valley in BC's southern interior|
|Fast flowing rivers and creeks can be seen along Highway 3.|

|Jeanette and Aline had a long walk around their lovely home and garden. And what a garden!|
|Garry and Aline's son, Jesse ( a good friend our son, Deni) was home for the weekend. He was helping his mom plant some new trees and trimming others.|
Our plan was to ride back home; about a 4 hour ride from Peachland rolling on the Coquihalla Highway. We headed west on the Oakanagan Connector (a major four lane divided highway) toward Merritt, BC - in the BC Nicola Region. A stop at the visitor's centre - in Merritt - led us on to another plan. Speaking with the two ladies who manned the tourist information centre, we generated a new ride for ourselves. We had no reason to be home on Sunday so we chose to find an overnight spot and then meander our way back for home through other south/central interior roads. Although that was an impromptu decision, it was a good one. More on that later.
Thanks for dropping by.
