Really thankful for Gregg's suggestion to stay at this quaint motel. Equipped with a kitchenette, wifi, tv, queen bed, en suite bathroom, it definitely had more charm than staying at a generic brand motel. The owners of Johnny's are originally from the UK. They managed to get a red phone box on the lot which welcomes you as you drive in. Apparently, you can get inner tubes and float down the stream that stretches behind the motel. We'll definitely have to come back another summer and try that out when the water levels are higher!

... for awhile and watched the river that we're camped beside. Hmmm.. Looks higher than it was this afternoon.. Ok, now that we have internet, gotta get some contents insurance tomorrow. (And make sure it covers water damage from floating down the river!)

Poul was a great tour guide! Did you see the nude beach?
Stopped at Bromley Rock and had a great lunch.
What a climb out of Osoyoos but we didn't skip a beat.
Finally made it to Midway at 4:30 p.m/ ...
... says, "There's one!" and pulls over onto the gravel shoulder and hits the brakes. I grab for the Geezus Handle and brace for the sudden stop which we skid into and then we both break into a fit of laughter. Somewhat composed we turn down the little road and there is indeed an outhouse in the bush...well at least I won't have to resort to squatting. I get out of the car and take a couple of pictures for posterity. I want to always ...
Today we headed east along Hwy 3 in search of a quilt show that I saw advertised. It really was just an excuse for a road trip and proved to be great fun. The climb up the mountain out of Osoyoos is significant and has many switchbacks but what great views we had of the valley! This is a two lane highway through the mountains but the section we traveled is in good condition. I ...
