Our high temperatures coupled by lack of moisture have caused several local forest fires in the immediate area. Thus our absence is attributable to Fire Watch 2009. The winds have now dissipated and the situation is being stabilized. Optimistically there will not be any significant changes to the contrary.
In the meantime we will pick up where we left off in the Penticton area. This is another view of the SS Sicamous, as per our initial postings of July 15th.
