Since Kelly and Harold surprised me in Whistler, we decided to spend the week in British Columbia instead of going to Jasper.
Kelly wanted to explore the Whistler area more and I loved the town, so we stayed for a couple extra days.
We camped in Pemberton for two nights in a beautiful little place called Nairn Falls.
We hung out in Whistler walking the trails and shopping. Kelly went downhill biking one day and mountain biking another while I chilled out, read and relaxed.
We woke up on Wednesday to pouring rain so packed up and headed to the sunny Okanagan.
We camped for one night before moving on to Kelly’s parent’s place where we stayed for the remainder of our holidays.
It was sunny and hot, which are the perfect combination for a great summer holiday!
Kelly talked me into downhill biking one day at Silverstar, a ski resort near Vernon.I’ve gone before but with my mountain bike. This time we rented downhill bikes and all the protective gear came with it; I felt pretty hardcore!
I was terrified most of the time but had a blast down the hills and around the corners. We even saw two bears, one really close up.
We took our kayak out after a few years of it hanging in our garage!
It was a perfect day and we had so much fun jumping into the lake and kayaking around.
Kelly went biking a few more times while I just took Harold on nice walks through the trails.
It was Kelly’s mom’s 60th birthday while we were there, so we had a couple of fun birthday suppers.
I’m so happy we stayed in BC, celebrated Kelly’s mom with his family, and got to enjoy the activities the beautiful province offers.
Where is your favourite place to spend summer holidays?
We haven’t spent much time in Vernon in the past couple years, and I forgot how much I love it!
