AMAZING FINDS ON THE WAY TO GET MY CAR SERVICED

 As I was driving up to Penticton yesterday morning for my scheduled appointment for an oil change and brake job, I was surprised at how beautiful the reflection was on Vaseux Lake.  When I found a spot where I could safely park, I was amazed to find the reflection was in clear ice, not water!

Then as I got to Penticton and was in the left turn lane to go into town, I spotted some neat ice formations off to my right at the mouth of the river channel.  They were caused by the recent strong winds blowing lake water onto the shore.  Since I was committed to my turn, It took me a few kms to get back to a parking lot where I was able to walk to the ice.  When I got there, I found the best area fenced off but I was able to find some nice ice outside the fence.

WHERE HAVE ALL THE BUCKS GONE DURING HUNTING SEASON?

They're hiding out in plain sight in the vineyards in town.  Our section of the Okanagan River is filling up with Barrow's Goldeneye ducks.  I've been counting over a hundred in the group lately.

One night a beaver tried to take a tree over the dam but it got stuck.  He got it over the next night.
