Going for a walk with friends

Old Gate, Penticton in the back ground

Uphill and homeward we go

Small orchard tucked away in the hills

Flooding in Venice!( thanks go to "The Guardian" for this image.
Walking with friends is a very ancient activity which can still be enjoyed today even without a Tim Horton's coffee, a water bottle, a pair of ski poles, or cell phone in hand. Camera in hand is a must however. Our friend Johann discovered a British Columbia Survey Marker post on the ground near an old fence on the KVR trail. Interesting. He was very observant. If you read it carefully we are to be punished by imprisonment if we remove it!
Vera his wife made us tea and crisp bread with Stilton cheese afterwards.
Here are a few photos from our walk.
Athens Creek this morning! View outside our door....I hope you can enjoy the 3-D effect on this image!
Today all is covered in a few inches of snow, and the snow ploughs are out scraping and sanding.... No flooding here thank goodness!

How terrible it must be to live in Venice. This happens a few times a year.

Greetings,
