|The view crossing the bridge into Kelowna. Just about home.|
It was a second day of thinking I would make an early start. Today a big shopping mall near the Tsawwassen ferry terminal in Vancouver, BC opened with the lure of $100 and $50 gift cards galore. Needless to say the George Massey tunnel that travels under the mighty Fraser River was backed up in a tremendous way. I tried to keep my cool as the cheater-cheater-pumpkin-eaters cut into the tunnel lane along Steveston Highway at every possible opportunity. Towing the Gypsy Wagon means I am forced to be law abiding. Well, abide I did for over 30 minutes in what should take 5 minutes. It does not sound that bad as I type it now; however, at the time, I was not feeling super patient.
|Approaching Kelowna, BC, you come barrelling down a 30 kilometer hill to be treated to this view looking south over Peachland towards Penticton. Home!|
|Earlier in the day after finally getting through the tunnel my peaceful South Langley bliss was ruptured by a high velocity rock striking my windshield. It sounded like a bullet. Well, no need for coffee because I am awake now!|
|I pulled through KP Tirecraft to put in an order for a new trailer spare tire and received a recommendation for windshield replacement, too. Tomorrow.|
|The Gypsy Wagon is home.|
