After driving for around an hour along what can only be described as a "country track" we finally found our destination, Jackpine Lake.

Samuel was kitted up ready to go, so we inflated the dinghy and set out on the lake for an afternoon fishing. The fish were jumping aaround us, the osprey where diving into the lake and a loon called out echoing across the lake and then the valley.

Jackpine Lake....

But we caught absolutely nothing, (I remember now why I find fishing frustrating!) but had fun nonetheless, in the silence of the wilderness, planning to get the tent out for a further excursion maybe next weekend. We’re getting adventurous now….

Oh and on a lighter note, West Nile Fever is getting closer to the Okanagan…. I can see the emails now!
