Fall 2003

Oody and Brian near Spences Bridge, deciding on how many pounds of interesting rocks to bring home.

Fall 2003

The old telecom line has been replaced with fibre optic. Look closely at the crossbars and you can see the glass and ceramic insulators used for over a hundred years.

(We didn't bring home just rocks)

Fall 2003

A beautiful square grand piano in the salon of the Quilchena Hotel. The bar at the Quilchena is the oldest in the province and was a popular rest spot on cattle drives. If you ask, the staff will point out the bullet holes.

Sometimes, these things just catch you by surprise.

Curious now.

Investigating the carrots. (Good thing we packed a healthy snack.)

The carrots just didn't cut it.

Fall 2003

More interested in the camera.

All this time, the lead mare was watching us with great suspicion, and staying within easy kicking distance. We didn't make any quick moves.

Spring 2004

The Douglas Lake Ranch office.

Spring 2004

The Woodward family loved the Douglas Lake Ranch and spent a great deal of time there. After the Woodwards department store failed, this original delivery wagon was donated to the ranch.

Spring 2004

Cows are pretty much mobile vegetables. This one would have kept on staring at us until we hit.

 

Spring 2004

At first we thought someone had gone to great lengths to run an extension cord to their laptop. After a quarter mile, we realised it was a yellow tow-rope.

Spring 2004

Decommissioned rail-bed running through the Nicola Valley. It would make a good cycle route and we're considering exploring it in future.

Brian and Oody on a trestle on the decommissioned rail-bed.
