A couple of November days last week felt more like spring with the blue skies, and warm temperatures that reached 17°C. It was so warm outside that I was in shorts and a t-shirt and we even kicked off our shoes and walked in the water. We had lunch at Memphis Blues BBQ House then visited a few of our favourite parks and beaches, the kids wrestled in leaf piles and generally just played. We hope to catch a some more awesome weather before the real winter arrives in Kelowna!
We visited City Park and Hot Sands Beach, Rotary Beach Park, and then finished at a small public beach down by the Hotel Eldorado. I have heard it called Hidden Beach though we didn't see a sign referencing that. It's located just off Truswell Road along a hidden path where Mission Creek meets the lake. Perfect name if that is what it's called. It's a great place to go skim boarding too.
Shoes off in November! What a treat. Hannah thought these "tide pools" at Rotary Beach were pretty cool. Fortunately, no crabs were found.
A 30 second leaf pile in Kelowna's City Park provided 30 minutes of fun. Build it up, knock it down!

A couple dogs play with their owner, jumping around in the sand and the sun and splashing around in the water... just like my girls.
