The day started with a woman coming to see us off in Penticton. She had lost her father to ALS and she wanted to let us know that she was so appreciative of what we were doing and gave us a donation. It was a small gesture that meant so much to all of us. The highlight of the day and we hadn’t even left the parking lot!
The ride was hot but it was relatively flat, a nice break before our tough climb tomorrow. We made good time….not sure if that was our desire to get out of the heat or the pull of lunch at Burrowing Owl. I must say it was amusing to see 10 riders shower and change in just 2 rooms within 45 minutes so we could make lunch.
Our final team meeting tonight was thoughtful. Everyone was in good spirits but there was the looming reality that tomorrow will be our last day. Some of us will head home, some will continue with other vacation plans but our convoy will break up. Our journey together isn’t ending but it will take on a different shape, at least for now.
- Osprey flying above us and diving into the river just as we were leaving Penticton
- The scenery – just can’t say enough about how beautiful this area is
- At the south end of Skaha Lake we met Annika, a woman whom the team had met last year. It was exciting to find her still there, she remembered the team from last year and we look forward to seeing her again next year.
- Lunch at Burrowing Owl – great food, wine and atmosphere
