Monday Holiday

 It was a beautiful day for a holiday. And a perfect day for snorkelling in the North Sound.

We spent some time in the Marine Park near the reef and it was amazing the amount of sea life that exists in places they are protected. Did see one Lionfish though but we made quick work (and ceviche) of him. Saw some large Gilumbo's, snappers, grouper, jacks and 4 BIG barracudas right together. I love the North Sound and will go to great lengths to protect it.

Sunday Evening

 A very lazy Sunday. But at least the children went to church with Aunt Shir Shir. More than I can say.
If you had to pick a beautiful day to be lazy this was it. And a Holiday tomorrow.

 Last night in Kelowna and at Prospero Centre watching the Kelowna Rockets beat the Spokane Chiefs 5-3.

Grandpa, Baylee and Hayley at the concession stand. Good fun.

Kuipers Peak

Hayley, Hunter, Baylee and Marlee out for dinner.
Sushi time!

Morning visit to Kuipers Peak, overlooking the city of Kelowna and Lake Okanagan.

Three cold Caymanians at Kuipers Peak, but a little retail thereapy can cure many ills....

 So, just heard that my sis got 3 lobsters today... last night we had fresh lobster too, flown in from Nova Scotia!
Almost just like home, pickin the legs!


 Thanks to Debbie for these great pictures! Eating lunch in the lodge, and...
The boarders at the top of the World! 


 We spent New Years Eve up at Silver Star. We watched the torchlight parade of skiers down the mountain then a fantastic fireworks display. Hunter went off tubing while Hayley learned to skate thanks to Ray-Lee.  After an hour she was running around like she had done this all before. Tanya took over supervision so I could get a group tube run with Grandma, Devon, Hunter and Braeden. We went so fast we hit the barrier at the end! Closed out the "old" year with a face full of straw and ice.
 Now Monday January 2nd and we are in Kelowna. We started out early to Crystal Mountain for boarding lessons.
 Jeff was a great instructor and before you know it...
 my 2 snowboarders were coming down the hill (with the expert guidance of Baylee and Debbie).
 The little dot in the middle is Hunter coming down on his 3rd run (!!!) while Hayley soldiers on!
That is one tired boarder! Now the girls are all in the hot tub soothing those bruises and sore muscles. Perfect conditions on the mountain with bright sunshine all day, no lines... all in all a lovely day. Hunter is a natural snowboarder, it was incredible seeing him coming down the mountain after an hour and a half of instruction. What next?
