Yesterday, the roommate and I had some drive to go out and do stuff in town. So we decided to see if the cute Japanese garden and the art store were open or not. So at about noon, we set out on our journey.
To get into Kelowna we have to take the bus. Yes, I will be bringing back Bus Adventures eventually. The main downtown strip is almost completely closed to vehicle traffic, so the bus had to do a funny loop and wait for so many people on foot. At first when the Mayor said he was going to close it to vehicles I thought he was nuts. Now that I’ve been down there a couple times, I really like the idea.
The way the huge interchange, exchange thing, is built is that you have access to city park, the library and downtown. With that, we had options, and the art store was the closest. My roommate and I like wandering that store, Opus is what it’s called I think. Guess what’s closed on Monday?
Well frick. Onto the next thing then?
Chaibaba, which is a cute little tea cafe place was our next destination. Beautiful 25 degree weather complimented our iced lattes as we doubled back towards the downtown area. The different groups of people downtown are just, wow. We saw so many gorgeous people, there are just too many people to gawk at all the time really.
With our lattes in hand, the Japanese garden awaits! I made a post on it awhile back because the koi fish are so cute! Seeing the Sights! The city is putting new fish into the pond and doing maintenance to keep the place alive and healthy. Walking through there is so peaceful, you can’t hear the cars driving by. It’s just so amazing and calming. If you’re ever in Kelowna, I recommend it one hundred percent!
With calm vibes and some tea in our systems, it was onto lunch. I needed, like, needed, poutine. There’s a Smoke’s Poutinerie that was just calling to me. I don’t normally get cravings, so I couldn’t fight it. Restaurants in my town are taking names and phone numbers just in case your health is at risk. I know it’s only been a day, but I haven’t heard anything so…
The lake is warm and such a stunning view as of recently. There are way too many people out and about though. Being on the lake, we happened to catch the parasailing people. My lovely roommate treated me to a ride on that parachute and it was amazing! What a relaxing way to see the whole city. If I wasn’t scared of dropping my phone into the lake, I would have got a picture from up there.
After all of that, my poor roommates social battery was running on empty, so we made our way home. That happened with perfect timing as the weather started to change on us. I had a great time.
Having a good relationship with my roommate is something I really am thankful for! I love her so much and am beyond grateful to have her in my life.
Thanks for stopping by today!
