OK where was I? Oh ya, we woke up to a beautiful morning. Weather was back on track.





Had a bit of brekky... I had to yell to get their attention hence the bit of shocked look





One last trip down to the beach... and found these.





And we are back on our way. This was a fun stretch of gravel on the way to Shuswap Lake.





We gassed up here, at Daniels Store and Marina, in Seymour Arm - the Northern tip of Lake Shuswap. This marina ain't on google maps! They have a facebook page though. The gal that works / owns this place is a charm. Real fun lady and used to all the whippersnapers that show-up, so she easily bested us when it came to joking around and having one on.

They have a well stocked store and also sell liquor, place gets real busy in the summer, but after labour day things drop off. Lucky they are even open. Totally recommend this as a gas stop. Something like 60 people live here year round.







Anyways the gas is good.




So our plan was to take the North Fork Forest Service Road and run with it down the Perry River to Highway 1 then slab it to Revelstoke. But the road was closed, had been for a few years even though the Province is supposed to fix it. We were contemplating going for it anyways... but reason prevailed.

We took the Gorge Forest Service Road which parallels the North Fork and has some nice views of Shuswap Lake as a bonus. The road was a lot of fun, but got busier and more active with logging the closer we got to Highway 1.




Typical gravel.




Active logging




View of lake Shuswap. Very nice.




Roadside flowers, late summer. My soft and tender side.




We stop for a break




Running down the active logging road. This took us to Highway 1.





We ride into Revelstoke and get a room at the Swiss Chalet Motel. No they don't serve chicken there.

While figuring out where we are going to stay, some Tourism Revelstoke guy took our picture, who knows, next year we might end up in the travel guide. They want more motorcycles to be featured.





The Km for the day.





We walk into Revelstoke for dinner. Revelstoke is famous for sleds and skiing. It has fantastic natural beauty. It is a nice little town.




Dinner at the Village Idiot. We had a good time. The young handsome guy was a nephew of Vlad iirc. Vlad knows someone seemingly in all corners of BC.




Then bed.
