That's our trailer, the farthest out, just visible between the trees
We didn't hang around for too long that morning. Off we went, south through Penticton. I was on the lookout for a fruit stand. I can never decide which one to stop at though. Larry said 'look there's one that says they have plums' (I needed plums as our trees had none this year). We were already past, so continued up the highway, turned into a gas station and then came back. A feisty little Italian lady with a strong accent was running it. They had plums, and concord grapes, and quince (that was a bonus, hadn't even thought of those). I asked if they took debit or credit, as I didn't have much cash left. I couldn't understand all she said, but the gist of it was that we would have to go back up the highway and get some cash from the gas station. So off we went, got the cash, turned around at the gas station yet again, and bought lots of plums, grapes, quince and garlic. Then back over that same stretch of road for the fifth time as we headed toward home.
We made a stop in Keremeos for some lunch and a walk for the dogs down to the Similkameen River there. After Jake and Luna went in a few times, they started balking at getting their toys, and then we realized that the water was really icy. Too late, I'd already thrown Luna's toy back in. Luna and I ended up about 500 ft downstream, all the while I was encouraging her, and throwing rocks at the ball. She would walk out part way, and then wouldn't go any farther. Kind of looked like how you and I feel when that cold water hits the crotch.....I could sympathise. Finally she got brave enough and took those couple of extra steps to grab it.
