I thought this blog would be all about sunrise pictures and maybe a few others of our travels to Calgary today to spent Thanksgiving with our son and his family … but nope they are not the highlight. Oh you are still going to get sunrise pictures of course 😀
But let’s start at the beginning …
We left the park at 6:30 and headed north on Westside Road rather than driving through Kelowna, Lake Country, and Vernon. Westside Road is considered the most dangerous road in BC and while they have done some work on it, it needs a lot more … but hubby is a good driver and I kept my eye out for deer and mountain sheep so we made it to the end safely, and in doing so missed all the traffic in the cities.
Theoretically it should have saved us ten minutes but we lost that time for picture stops, but then that is what travelling is all about for us … taking in the scenery.
Years ago we used to spend weekends camping at the city run RV park in Enderby, a little more than an hour north of Kelowna, and those weekends would always include a walk to Sutherland Bakery or Sutherland Ice Cream. Over the years I had forgotten about the great donuts and ice cream until a friend reminded me … thanks Delma 🙂
She had also told me they had a maple bacon donut which was really good and our son loves bacon so we figured a stop was in order to pick up an assortment of donuts to take with us.
As we got to the till to pay I saw, and smelt, the most delicious pizza, but come on it’s 8:00 in the morning, we can’t have pizza … or can we … yes we can … it’s breakfast pizza … who knew there was such a thing … not me!
We both knew right away that we had to have a piece and it was delicious. With a layer of salsa topped with ham, bacon, eggs, pepper, onions, cheese and probably a bunch of other yummy ingredients, it was beyond delicious and the best part was it wasn’t greasy.
The rest of the trip was good although filled with road construction, which is the way of life when the weather is actually good enough to drive the Rogers Pass. That is why I prefer to fly but we had a truck full of Christmas presents to take with us so it made sense to drive this time … that and COVID. But then again if we hadn’t driven we never would have found breakfast pizza!
Until next time …
