SS Sicamous

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.

It looks high and dry. I bet it is a grand sight out on Lake O.
I hope the fires are all under control.
Thanks for the Kelowna web site. MB

We live in a "forest" with lots of big old trees and actually within a couple of miles of where the Ocala National Forest begins...

Usually, in a dry summer, there are hundreds of fires burning in central Florida, but this year, fortunately, we've had lots of rain. A lot of rain!

Wind doesn't help with the fires, either. Glad to hear the situation has stabilized...and hope you get more of the wet stuff.

Love this paddle-wheeler!
