Here comes the sun
Speaking of the Beatles, Here comes the sun. Finally. All the rain we were beginning to wonder if we’d ever see summer. Here it comes. I went to White cliff last night. It’s nice to get away from the world’s insanity. I like the smell of the ocean.
Clear sky, calm water, very peaceful. My father used to take me there when I was very young to take pictures of the sunset. We’d climb down on the rocks and I’d fish while he read First Nation legends of Vancouver as compiled by Pauline Johnston. White cliff is nice. I like to put the kayak in there now. It’s a poplar protected diving spot. Yet anywhere you go there are nice secluded places to visit.
When I went to Kelowna climbing up the face on Knox Hill was the perfect place to watch the sunset. Across the lake there are nice trails along bear creek and the perfect ridge you can climb to watch the sun rise over Kelowna.
Kelowna is a really nice place. I don’t think all those slimy little night clubs are making that much money. They might be busy on a Friday or Saturday night but that’s not enough to carry them throughout the week. In due time supply and demand will do them in. I didn’t realize how many young families are in Kelowna. It sure isn’t a retirement village any more. There is a great potential for growth and a good foundation of young families who really don’t want or need the Hells Angels' drugs. So we’re gonna soak up the sun while it’s here yet I’m already starting to long for winter. I’ll have to climb the glacier on Baker to get my ice and snow fix.
