the desert

we are back from our brief getaway to osoyoos. boy i love it there.
i think the contrast between the desert and the lush vineyards is amazing.

we went to a couple wine tastings, not too many this trip. we did go to a new one for us, church and state, and it was wonderful! the tasting room was beautiful, very clean and modern and the wine was delicious.


we went on a few walks around the property we stayed at and saw beautiful osprey that were hunting to feed their babies.


we also were really hoping to see a rattlesnake and we did!! it was avoiding the sun under the foot bridge we were standing on. it looked like it was sleeping, but somehow i doubt it. i'm sure it knew we were very close trying to snap a picture.





and on our last morning, before i learned how to play ping pong (must get a table!) and took a dip in the pool, we went for a very early morning walk down to the lake and saw a deer. we weren't quick enough to get a picture though.




i hope you had a great week and enjoy the weekend!

looks like you had a wonderful time - and relaxing. But maybe the snakes called for a tincture or two?
