The next main part of our Kamloops adventure was revisiting the gorgeous Lake Isobel . We'd been there with the whole family during the trip a few years ago and loved it. Just the same as last time, Barb packed up the hot dogs (soy for Giaan), rolls and other snacks. Having trouble lighting the fire we discovered the lighter was out of gas. Barb drove back down the road to borrow some matches from the Park Supervisor. The Park Supervisor and their family were currently out so Barb had no problem entering their trailer area, dodging toys, rubbish, dirty nappies and general belongings to "borrow" a box of matches that were lying on a table. We of course returned them, excluding the one used match before we left the park.
After stuffing ourselves like the respectable people that we are, our small stampede trampled through the trail around the lake. Hoping to see a bear in the wild, we only saw some local bird life, free roaming cows, a small snake and of coarse a couple of squirrels. A good hour and a half later, not without several screeches from Giaan, we were all ready to head home. The drive, took approximately an hour and shockingly, Brian only dozed off once.
