About 25 years ago I was spending a week with the couple I boarded with in Calgary at a campsite on the Okanagan Lake. Friends had a cottage across the lake and came for me. It was late when they decided to take me back to my campsite. However the boat did not have lights and it was very dark out there on the lake. All the shore line looked alike.We were not sure which place was where I belonged. I saw a lantern swinging to and fro. It was the couple I lived with, frantic about me hoping we'd see the light, which we did. I was only 19 at the time so it didn't seem like a big deal but they were so concerned about me.
I also remember one of the boys got the runs from the delicious B.C. cherries and could not go into Kelona with us for the evening.
