Summer holiday recap {part one}

I meant for this to go up yesterday, but we got home late last night from the Tosh show. Mr.D bought the tickets on the later side, so we were unable to get seats together. Turns out we were about 5 rows from the front!  It was a hilarious show if you don’t mind his humour.


Onto the vacation recap:

My mom flew in on the Friday night and then on the Saturday morning, we dropped Harley off at the kennel and then we set out for the ~9 hour drive. The drive was pretty uneventful but I love going through the mountains.
Some of the views on the drive

We arrived in Penticton around 6:30ish and set up our campsite. Mr.D and I had our own campsite where we slept in a tent and my mom slept in Mr.D’s parents tent trailer.

I won’t lie, our days were pretty laid back as we spent most days at the beach laying in the sun and playing in the water. We lucked out and had gorgeous weather every day and no rain at all.

One of the days, we were all a little tired of the beach, so we took a drive up to Naramata, which is well known for being a wine region. The first stop was at a winery called Red Rooster.

This recap is getting a little long, so I will finish it up tomorrow Smile


  1. Looks great! We want to go to Naramata next summer! Good work on getting all hot weather!
