After an especially intense period at work, we finally made our annual trek to the beach in Osoyoos, BC. Same beach, same hotel, same unit. Boring? Well, my older son thinks so and doesn’t come anymore, but the rest of us find the sameness relaxing. Both my husband and I still had to do a bit of work when we got here, but I think we’re both done now. My younger son, who is working in his first job, on a short-term contract in a motion-capture studio, was able to get the time off and come with us.
We haven’t really had the usual high temperatures (which maybe is good) and the first couple of days were rainy, but we have still been enjoying the down time. On Monday, my son and I drove an hour to get to a really nice indoor pool and hot tub — and almost got caught in some flooding on the highway that got heavier just as we were coming up to it! We made a u-turn and managed to find a way around it! A bit scary, but still worth the drive.
As always, the view from the balcony and on the beach is amazing, regardless of the weather. I’m catching up on some reading, eating good food, and drinking good wine. Tomorrow, we’ll go to some of the local wineries for lunch and tastings and, I’m sure, purchases. Looking forward to it!
