Wordless Wednesday 5: Osoyoos in the Spring

On this week’s episode of Wordless Wednesday…

Photos from our extended Easter weekend in what was the warmest part of Canada – Osoyoos, B.C.

Sunshine, blooming orchards, ordered vineyards… not too shabby for one long weekend.

Tongue hanging way out – Moses wasn’t really digging the heat at first.

But there is a definite benefit to heading to a warmer climate:

Swimming!

Our ridiculous water dog had initially forgot he could swim, but it all came back to him soon enough.

And there were some relatively dog-friendly tourist attractions to visit.

“How to”? Really? If you can’t operate a poop bag, I might suggest you’re not qualified to own a dog.

I didn’t snag a photo of the “Marmot Crossing” signs

More swimming at the dog beach.

Okay, more like “lounging”.

Fun fact: that house, viewed from a street in Osoyoos, is in Washington state. And that dilapidated barbed wire fence is meant to keep us ruffian Canadians out.

(All photos were taken on the iPhone – left the camera at home.)

  1. It looks like you had a lovely weekend. At first glance, it looked like Moses was superimposed into the top photograph – what a view!

    Moses had the right idea about “lounging” in the water. 😀

    That fence cracks me up – but you’re absolutely right, we have to have something in place to protect us from you ruffians. 😉

    What a gorgeous weekend you had! We had some awesome weather in Nova Scotia as well, but it didn’t last very long. That part of the country is always beautiful. Thanks for sharing some of it with us!

    The poop bags I am using right now have explanations as well. It makes me laugh. Seriously.

    We Canadians can be pretty evil. It’s always the quiet ones.

    They don’t need a barbed-wire fence. They just have to ask nicely and we’ll stay out. Sheesh.

    Also, the picture of Mo by the man-on-a-horse statue reminds me of this:

  4. Moses, you are my kind of dog–I dig water too!! Love your trip pics.

  5. Oh for a dog that likes water! OBF had to be lifted and placed in a tub for his last bath, and jumped out half-way through. 🙂

    Alberta is seriously beautiful. Gotta get the kids out there one day.

  6. Great photos. We are going to Canada from Washignton State next week. I hope it isn’t too cold. Brrr.
