Robert G Christie DFM

Metal Sculpture in praise of the Salmon, Christie Memorial Park.

New walkway and lamps

Nice Picture but you figure it out what is it all about? View from the park.
Robert G Christie (Distinguished Flying Medal) was a navigator in the RAF when he was killed in action in 1943. He was the only serviceman to be killed in World War II who came from Okanagan Falls. A Provincial Park was built there and named in his memory in 1965 on the beach area of South Skaha Lake. The park recently underwent a major restoration, with lamps and paved walkways. It is one of our favourite lakeside haunts, providing shade and great views.

That mirror like lake is wonderful. I would make it so pleasant to see and walk along the path.

It looks like a beautiful place for a walk or a sit and relax or a swim (having first hurtled down a water slide).
