WALKABOUT WEDNESDAY


Well hello there felines.  It's "Walkabout Wednesday" and once again my tunnel is out and about...


This past Sunday, my tunnel took to Highway 97 and headed north to Vernon, a city of 38,000, located 46 km from where we live...
Kalamalka Lake above shows its different blue colors due to light scattering from the mineral calcite...


Then it headed up the mountain to an elevation of 5280 ft...



To Silver Star Mountain Resort...


My tunnel said the mountain air was so pure and fresh...


Silver Star is a pawpular skiing destination in the winter with some of the world's best powder...


Off-season it brings a lot of mountain bikers...


My tunnel enjoyed its walk on the wonderful hiking trails...


Taking in the beautiful sights of nature...


And the gorgeous wild flowers...

After my tunnel returned to Headquarters, it slept like a baby from all the pure, fresh mountain air...

Gotcha Day Serenade


It's the 5th Gotcha Day of Neytiri and Ducky and they woke up to something special this morning...


They heard some noises and Neytiri ran to look out the window...


There was Ducky's distant relatives on the scene...


Mama and Papa Quail and their 19 babies were outside Headquarters...


They stopped by to wish Neytiri and Ducky a Happy Gotcha Day...


Yep, Neytiri and Ducky were given a very special 
21 Quail Salute Serenade!


A video of Neytiri catching a glimpse of a few baby quail...


And wait for it...all of the Quail gang in action!

Neytiri and Ducky will always remember this special Gotcha Day!

WALKABOUT WEDNESDAY


Well hello there felines.  It's "Walkabout Wednesday" and my tunnel has recuperated from its balloon lag from last week and is ready to share some local adventures with you...


This past Saturday, my tunnel took to Highway 97 and headed south...


It hoofed it 62 km to Penticton, a small city of around 32,000 in the southern Okanagan valley and a pawpular destination for summer tourists...



The Farmer's Market was in session and is in its 25th season...


There was awesome produce including some lovely kale...
 

Talented musicians...


Yummy baked goods...


My tunnel had amour for L'Amour...


And got up-close-and-purrsonal with theese chocolate croissants...


There was lovely flowers...


Beautiful jewelry...


Here's a closer look at the unique gemstone jewelry pendants made by the man above...


My tunnel marveled at the gorgeous raspberries...


And unleashed its "Inner Gypsy"...


And then had a "Magical Reading"....
Apparently my tunnel is a hard subject to "read"...


After walking around the market for 2 hours, my tunnel worked up an appetite and headed to a very loved delicatessen...


Ordered up an awesome Italian sandwich with all the fixins'...


And sauntered over to the waterfront to chillax before making the trek back home...
(This giant peach on the waterfront represents the Peach Festival that is held in Penticton each August which has music and entertainment and activities like a sandcastle competition)...


My tunnel took in the gorgeous view of Okanagan Lake, had a bit of suntanning time and hit the highway for its return trip to Headquarters...

Well hello there felines.  It's another "Walkabout Wednesday" and my tunnel has been gallavanting in Australia and the United States...Rumor has it that my tunnel is finally on its way back home...


Neytiri was out on the patio when, all of a sudden, she caught a glimpse of something...


A hot air balloon was heading our way...


I came outside to see theese one for myself...


Yep, there was my tunnel arriving, in style, by balloon and on target for Headquarters...
My tunnel will bring you some local adventures as soon as it gets over its jet lag balloon lag...stay tuned!
