Driving Around

Photos today from driving around the South Okanagan. Driving around the internet news pages, I found that Norway is short of butter, and some wonderful news from Brazil; now one can get a free ticket to watch the World Cup (soccer) if one hands in one's gun. They will then make all the guns into goal-posts....
Oh by the way, the Brown Bear that surprised downtown office workers in Vancouver yesterday perching on top of a garbage truck has now been released into the forest at Squamish. I think he even made it onto BBC news!
Coast Hotel Rooms, Osoyoos, with blue sky.

House with a view, Osoyoos

Elk decorating the entrance to a subdivision, near Osoyoos

House in Mt Baldy Village

Farm near Oliver BC. Note the outside toilet has no door!
Lastly, somebody calculated that English folk ride 36 miles a year each on their bicycles; Danish folk 600 miles.....No comment!

The open door is there so that they can see the bear approaching when they are on the toilet.

Die Antwort auf deine Frage: Auf Bild Nr. 5 das Schwarze ist ein nasser Wurzelstock (roots).

Ich freue mich immer auf deine Fotos.
Das Haus (Bild Nr.2) hat wirklich einen tollen Ausblick über das ganze Land. Ich glaube es hat noch eine Sternwarte (die weisse runde Halbkugel, die man öffnen kann zum Sterne beobachten).

Liebe Grüsse

There are actually three private observatories on or near Anarchist mountain in Osoyoos. This is one of them. Another one owned by Jack and Alice Newton is also a bed and breakfast, so you can stay there and learn all about the stars and planets from Jack! You can Google Observatories Osoyoos and find out more...
