Friday night after being totally Duff’ed out, I met up with John at home (after he had a busy day up in Whistler). We packed up the car and hit the road, heading deep into those dark mountain passes. John was by my side the whole way, telling me stories about work and playing some awesome tracks on the ipod via the transmitter in the car to keep me awake. We rolled into Osoyoos by 4:00am, just as the sun was rising and the last shooting star sailed across the sky for the night.

The following 3 days were wonderful. We had no plan, no agenda, we both just knew we wanted sun, sand and good times.

My first taste of Rickard's White

All photos taken with the Nokia 6682, almost time for a new camera phone but this one’s served us well over the last year. I have so much blogging to catch up on, hence the photo-heavy post. It was awesome to disconnect for so long and to spend time with the person I love, I’m actually not too happy to be home but here’s hoping we can get the heck outta here again some time soon.
