ABC Wednesday

X is for eXpress to Summerland

where the doctor performs his Eye Magic eXquisitely

We were on the road early this morning, on the eXpress route to Summerland. Charles was to have eye surgery, and although patients are forbidden to drive to the site, he does not give up the wheel easily.

It left me with hands and eye for the camera, and I was able to capture a few pictures of the journey.

Sun drenched hay fields and the glistening water at Yellow Lake





We passed along Skaha Lake and through the by-pass at Penticton...



we came to the clay cliffs that line the roadside and tower above the lake, - quite eXtraordinary, and eXtremely impressive....







Just as we approached Summerland I caught a fleeting picture of Giant's Head Mountain....ever eXtra faithful in watching over the town. (you may have to look carefully for the Giant's Head, unless you click and enlarge)



We stopped to get some eXcellent chocolate on the way home, as we both felt the need for eXtra sustenance. I was driving and Charles needed eXcess patience to keep him from eXclaiming aloud about my eXemplary conduct on the road!!!!

X-tremely difficult letter the "X" is! But the next one is even more difficult! May be I'll skip that one. Thanks for the beautiful trip in your car!

Thanks so much for visits, - eye surgery went like a charm and in a few days Charles will be able to enjoy even more this beautiful country we live in. He has a keen eye for details and shadow and is often the advance scout for photo shots.
