Last week I took a vacation to visit my parents and go to my cabin on Shuswap Lake. I went at the perfect time as it had been abnormally rainy and cold in the Okanagan before that and I arrived to the first real hot sunny week there. It was almost perfect weather with only a couple slightly overcast days. It was the ideal vacation and exactly what I needed after a busy spring.
I spent the first couple days at my parents house and hung out with old friends in Salmon Arm. I spent most of the time at Canoe Beach laying on the beach and floating on the water with my friend Sabrina.

My boyfriend Mike came out Wednesday night so we headed off to my cabin on Thursday. We swam, lazed on the beach, kayaked down the lake to the Narrows to camp for the night, and spent time with my relatives who were at the cabin for the weekend.

Reliving my childhood on our surfboard at the cabin... the challenge was to have everyone stand on it at the same time!
Sunday I went for a nice road ride along the lake then we headed back to Canmore. We had a tough time dragging ourselves off the beach to make the drive and we stopped in Sicamous for one last swim before we headed back over the mountains. It was a shock arriving back in cold Canmore where it was rainy and miserable early in the week.
Next week we go in to the Haig Glacier for a week of glacier skiing. It will be nice to be back on snow again!
Thanks to Sabrina for all the pictures!
