Wine at Big Bar Lake and Grandma Duck

My name is Sharlene Stushnov-Lee and I am an artist living in Victoria, BC.  I first met TC and "the gang" a few years ago when they came to visit my good friend Marcela Strasdas, here in Victoria.  It sounded like they had a very good time together and I always thought that I would like to have them come and visit me.  But alas, life got in the way.

So you can imagine how surprised and delighted I was to find that they were making a return visit and would be joining us on our annual painting trip this year.    

Every year Marcela, Deborah (another friend) and I go on a painting road trip and this year was no exception.  We spent time in Kelowna, Ashcroft and Big Bar Lake.

One afternoon while we were at Big Bar Lake, I had the opportunity to spend some time with Senor Azul, Chicken and Hen and  . . .  how did that wine box get in there?  Yes, our visit may also have involved a little bit of afternoon wine.

When we returned to Victoria, Senor Azul and The Gang finally came over to my house to meet Grandma Duck.  Grandma Duck has been around for a long time and was happy for some company.   Unfortunately, TC and friends couldn't stay long as they had already made arrangements to visit Saltspring Island, so after a short visit they packed up (or I should say were packed up) and off they went.   

Hmm . . . .perhaps another road trip next year?
