Again, this year, we had one vehicle who found it too hot - this year it was the Phillip's 56 Mercury that had to drop out just before the parade ended.
After the parade, everyone drove the scenic route to the Pitt Meadows Airport for lunch. Again, thanks ...Read Full Post »

We arrived in Osoyoos to beautiful sunny skies and booked into the Best Western Hotel. We were given priority parking at the front of the hotel for the weekend. After unpacking we headed...Read Full Post »
