When we finally settled on a plan of travel for the next few days we were happy it included really short days so there was no rush to get on the road early … and then of course I wake up just after 1:00 a.m. and cant get back to sleep 😦 When I was able to fall back asleep it was 6:30 a.m. but, because we had a short travel day, I took full advantage and went back to sleep for another two hours 😀
We were on the road by 9:30 a.m. and would be set up at our destination, the Carl Precht RV Park, in Omak, WA by 11:30 a.m. … I told you it was a short drive!
We were surprised at the amount of snow and so low on the hills in Washington.
Our main reason for spending a night there was to wash Maxx and get the road salt off of him. We also needed to pull out our passports, Canadian wallets, grab our duty free list with receipts attached, and figure out how much alcohol we had in our three partial bottles.
Before too long we had sunny blue skies.
Well those were our good intentions but the RV Park in Omak still had their water shut off 😦 So we made a quick stop and dealt with everything else and then we headed off to Canada. Our plan for tomorrow was to stop at a Provincial campground just on the Canadian side of the border and I was all over that plan but hubby just wanted to get home and I always figure it is the driver’s call so home we went.
The Osoyoos, BC border crossing, always a welcome sight 🙂
As soon as we crossed the border, which was so easy with no questions due to our Nexus cards, I put our Canadian SIM cards in our phones and sent texts to the kids and my sister that we were back in Canada. When I looked up from that project I saw we were already driving through Oliver, BC.
Before to long we had passed through Penticton and caught our first good glimpse of Okanagan Lake.
We made a stop for lunch before we drove through West Kelowna.
And our excitement started to build as we came up to the exit for Bear Creek Provincial Park.
There is the park, on the point, hmm the trees haven’t even started to get buds, normally we see lots of signs of spring on our way home.
We decided to set up in the double site behind our site because we need to do some yard work in our site, but we will start on that tomorrow.
That is our site on the left behind Maxx.
So in the end it was a longer day than planned, five hours total, but we are now home for the summer and are looking forward to catching up with family and friends.
Until next time …
