Fun With Bloggers :-)

Another busy week and lots of fun was had … we have almost 450 km on our new bikes! 🙂

Another great Kelowna bike lane. Abbott Street on the left, bike lane in the middle, sidewalk on the right.

The last time we rode down Abbott Street by the hospital this building with the coffee shop in the bottom was not there!

Last Tuesday we met up with 5C’s Que Pasa and Six Saturdays and a Sunday for an Okanagan Blogger Fest, which consisted of a happy hour and dinner. Blogging is a funny thing, you write a blog … and as we discussed it is usually because you want your family to know what you are doing … and strangers start to follow you, the next thing you know you are blogger friends and know so much about each other, and yet you have never met!

Well in our case we had met both Colin and Contessa of 5C’s Que Pasa and Rod and Sylvia of Six Saturdays and a Sunday before, but this was the first time the six of us had gotten together (and the first time the other two couples had met) and it was a fun filled five hours … we even closed the restaurant down (I felt very sorry for the servers when we finally had a lull in our conversation and realized the restaurant had closed an hour before!).

Colin, on the left took this picture. After the photo was taken Contessa had us all hold our positions then she stepped out and Colin stepped in on the left. Contessa took the picture again and later Colin photo shopped himself into the picture … now that is talent!!!

We started with happy hour at Colin and Contessa’s beautiful home on the shores of Duck Lake, as it is know by long term locals or, as I recently found out, is now known as Ellison Lake. After a few hours of non stop discussion, mostly centered on travelling, we headed over to the Italian Kitchen for dinner. The comradery didn’t stop after happy hour but continued on in full force through a three hour dinner!

We sat outside on the patio and it was very pleasant.

We had such a great time and we really hope that this will become an annual event!

Until next time …

  1. How lovely! That’s a happy group of friends! Funny about closing the restaurant. Kind of them to not rush you out.
    That is where a bike trail should be. Sorry, but we’ve got a bad taste in our mouth from how they ruined some London streets. They turned busy 4 lane streets into 2 lane streets with a bike path on the street side of the boulevard. that’s frustrating.
    Good for you with all the kms!

  2. So nice that you were able to get together and share some fun times and a tasty meal. It has been 9 years since we last saw Colin and Contessa on Stone Island in Mexico.

  3. It was lovely having you over and for certain we will make this an annual event. I already have it in my daytimer to stat organizing it in early July. The lake has always been Calle Ellison and that is its official name on our survey papers. Perhaps the name Duck Lake came along because of the huge variety of fowl we have on it, especially in the spring and the fall.

    By the way I am seriously considering an e tricycle.
