Cool2 Summer Break

It has been almost a week since we arrived at our friend Cal's cabin here at Mabel Lake . A big,beautiful lake , just perfect for our overdue summer break , travelling is a tough job
Cal reeived us in his stunning cabin with the same hospitality as he did in his home in Calgary on our way up north .
Muchas gracias Cal , te debemos mas que una





On the second day he had a boating trip organized , on a party boat of a friend of his . So in the morning we carred tons of food,beer and toys down to the beach where Ken was waiting for us with his boat








Our friend and host





A more relaxed way to enjoy the scenery then sitting on the bike..





Then the playtime begun , waterskiing, kneeboarding











And now it was time to cook and eat




Our captainand designated driver Ken was in charge of this,and he did a hell of a good job Thanks !!







An other outstanding day !!!!!!!!!

Would love to meet up with you..only drawback is I am on call and can not really make plans until Friday. We hope you LOVE Vancouver..the weather is supposed to turn a bit by mid week so get out when you can because our city is gorgeous in the sun...any sight seeing adventures in mind? You need some pointers?
