Later in the morning, the rain subsided and Jody and Katy headed out on a route that I had planned for them on RWGPS and which they downloaded to their Garmins. When I asked Jody afterwards what he thought of the route, he said it was "fantastic." In addition to Mcdonald's, I had added in a segment to Nozawaonsen, a popular ski resort in the area, and a segment along the Chikuma River. This area is truly a mecca for some great cycling
Around lunchtime, the innkeeper recommended a nearby curry restaurant called "Cafe Penticton" where I had a spicy but delicious curry. I had a great chat with the couple that owned the restaurant and they had lived in Banff and Jasper many years ago. In fact, they named the restaurant Penticton which means "forever" in the language of the Okanagan native people. After lunch, I rode down to the river and a few kms out beyond the town but headed back as it started to shower.
We were joined at dinner by Ed's friend, Mimi, who brought along some apples from her family's farm for dessert which were delicious. Our last night's dinner at the inn was the best one of our stay which is amazing as all the meals have been great!
