6 September 2017

Decided to continue south to Muncho Lake; there are nice campsites there and the weather was grand - good to go!

The dogs needed a walk so we headed out for a quick one.

After the dog walk, we went kayaking because the lake was calm and the temperature warm.

The weather was hot today, +30C (86F). So hot it was tempting to go for a swim!

Our campsite neighbours were from Texas and also enjoyed soaking in the lake!

Later in the evening it was time for another dog walk. We decided to head up the valley across the highway.

It was a beautiful day. We socialized with both our neighbours and had a lovely time.
