Howdy!

I've been away this weekend at the Quilchena Hotel on The Guichon Ranch near Nicola Lake in southern BC. We had a Jones family reunion and a memorial for Doug's dad who passed away a few months ago. It was a beautiful weekend (I'm not actually home yet - just thought I would post a couple of pictures as we stopped for a bite to eat on the way home.) The historic Quilchena Hotel is located on the cattle ranch that Doug's dad worked at when when was a young cowboy (that's him on the left. His brother on the right.) It's a great place to stay - everything is pretty much as it would have been 100 years ago - if you ever get the chance to stay there I thoroughly recommend it. More tomorrow, see you then :-)


Doug's dad started working at the ranch in the 1950's - the hotel wouldn't look quite like this then but still, it's a great old shot!

Looks beautiful! Would love to see a post with photos of the inside if you have them.

I've stayed there on a field trip as a kid. Very lovely place to be. Glad the trip was good :)

That is one of my favourite places to go to for a drive. We celebrated one of our anniversaries there, so memorable.
