Goodbye Paradise :-)

Well our time at Bear Creek Provincial Park has come to an end, and it has been a great nine nights 🙂 While we would love to stay longer, you can stay a maximum of fourteen nights, we had to leave for a couple of reasons. This is a long weekend in BC, Victoria Day, and the campground is fully book. Starting today through the Labour Day Weekend at the beginning of September 100% of the sites in this park can be reserved, and since this park is so popular it is almost impossible to get a reservation! Reservations can be made three months in advance and you had better be on the website the minute it opens because the sites go fast. Along with the $35.00 nightly fee (which is dry camping only, there are no serviced sites in the park) you also pay a $6.00 reservation fee for the first three nights.

But the main reason we are heading home today is because our son, daughter-in-law, and newest grandson are coming for a visit! No matter how awesome it is to sit by the lake and listen to the birds and waves wash in, this grandma is heading home for snuggle time!

We spent our last day sitting by the lake watching a mother duck and her ducklings.

Occasionally the drake would join them.

We spent an enjoyable evening sitting along the shores of Okanagan Lake and watched the City of Kelowna light up.

If you ever have the opportunity to spend some time at this park I have no doubt you will enjoy it!

Until next time …
