Vacation at Shuswap Part 3

Sunday, August 3rd, 2008

This morning started off by heading down to church in Chase – having to wake up at 8am for it was a challenge.  The best part of my vacation came next, as the whole family migrated over to the Quaaout Lodge for an all you can eat brunch as we do every year!  It was delicious pancakes, bacon, waffles, and even omlettes cooked custom right in front of you while you wait!  It’s a delicious place to eat, and we’ve been going there for several years now as a huge family group.  Though it really is funny how we think of ourselves as a small group this year because we’re only five or six campsites!

I just got back from brunch and I thought I’d jump back over to this cozy little coffee shop where I can sit and use their free wifi.  It’s so peaceful and laid back sitting here and sipping my coffee.  I’m just uploading some photos and the video from the last post so you can all see my amazing guitar skills!  My fingers hurt from playing for so long yesterday.

Off to the beach now for me!  Cheers!

Vacation at Shuswap Part 2

Saturday, August 2nd, 2008

I sit here again in my tent trailer typing in Notepad!  It’s been a very entertaining day today for certain!  This morning I woke up somewhere around 10am – though I can’t be certain because I haven’t been wearing my binary watch.  My parents made up pancakes for breakfast, and shortly after I drove a few minutes down the road from the campsite to a coffee shop that has free WiFi.  I uploaded photos and used VNC to connect to use my home computers.  I attempted to start processing thousands of photos from our dance competition into web format, but I had some bumps in the road.  I also checked my email and chatted a little… I went a little overboard and spent just short of three hours there!

I arrived back at the campsite to find that a bunch of the family had already headed down to the beach because the weather had gotten really sunny!  I got changed and went with my mom to join the group where we played in the water for a while!  It was nice to lay on the beach with the warm sun – it was awesome because it wasn’t too hot or too cold!  The water was even vastly warmer than other years!  I hope to get back down there sometime tomorrow maybe!

After the beach, the family met back at our campsite for a group spaghetti dinner!  Everyone brought either sauce, noodles, salad, or desert, and we all piled together to have a mass grubbin’.  Immediately after dinner, a bunch of unicyclers went out to the street so we could take some photos of our group!  I even got Vanessa up on my 5-foot giraffe unicycle!  The rest of the evening everyone hung around a good five or six hours at our campsite socializing and playing games like O-Hell.  John, Drew and I were even playing around jamming on our guitars (hoorah for Cherry Blossom!) – and I even got to do my very first performance to the song “Cows With Guns“!

Anyways, I’m having fun up here, but one thing I miss is having someone roughly my age to hang out with.  The closest on my younger side is probably about 16 or 17, and on the older side is probaly like 30 or older.  Being 21, I’m mostly hanging out with the older crew, but it’s been fun nomatter who I’m talking to!  Family is an important aspect to life, and I’m really enjoying it to its fullest up here!
