Still alive...I think

Vernon, Canada

Today, w left the luxury of the House at Kelowna and headed to Ellison Provincial Park for another night of camping. On the way, we stopped at the Log Barn, a very corny shop selling food and gifts run by Mennonites. We picked up some beef jerky, fruit and taffy, posed with a stuffed black bear and watched goats cross 'Dave's goat walk', a walkway bizarrely suspended across the carpark.

We made it to Ellison and, after putting up the tent, we spent the afternoon and early evening at the beach.

Rylan told me about a rock that you could jump off into the lake, so we decided to give it a go. In the dark. Of course, we scouted out the route to The Rock beforehand, spotting a chipmunk behaving in a very odd way, jumping up and down, spinning and rolling around. Suspecting some form of chipmunk rabies, we made a hasty exit.

As darkness fell, we made our way back to The Rock with the aid of torches and, after making Rylan go first to prove that I wasn't, as I suspected, at risk of death, and then dithering for at least another 10 minutes, I jumped.

I'm still alive. I think.
