Today we hiked up to the cell tower that was perched high upon one of the many hills/mountains in Kamloops. We could easily see it from the streets that surrounded Barb and Brian's house. Gerhard drove us to essentially the bottom of a close-by mountain. We hiked the rest of the way to the cell tower and then scrabbled through the untrailed bush from that mountain to another trail on another hill. We followed that trail until we reached a gorgeous water filled indent in the Earth known as Deep Lake. We walked around it and then continued the hike down back to the car. Gerhard stayed for lunch and a chat then headed home.
Later on we headed out for a Chinese dinner before going to a Blazers ice hockey game. The Blazers are a local team with players mostly ranging from 16 to 22 years old. Game was very fast and was hard to see the puck at times. A Huge contact sport but players are obviously are very safe with all the protective gear they have to wear. Quite a few smash ups against the wall a few fist fights during the game made it fun to watch. Pretty good atmosphere but unfortunately the Blazers lost 4-3. Great night though!!
On Friday went out to dinner with some of Barb's friends and then on to the Kamloops theatre to watch a play called "Don't Dress for Dinner", which was very funny. Good day in all.
