With the end of the summer here, and school back in I have been looking back at what I did during my summer vacation and wanted to share one of my favorite trips with you. One of the trips on my bucket list to be exact, going to the Enchanted Forest. It was the one thing I was most excited to complete. I love to travel, road trip especially, even if that means only taking a short one or two-hour drive. To see how everything changes from one location to the next can be breathtaking and that was one of the best parts of this trip, the scenery, the changes.
Growing up in a small town of Northern BC I was used to the fields and forests always being lush and green, but here in the Okanagan, it is defiantly not lush and green during the summer. But along the drive, you get to watch hills grow into gorgeous mountains and the trees and grass stand tall, more and more quenched of thirst with every kilometer.
I most likely found the drive so stunning because the last time I had been down to Sicamous was when my brother and I were way younger. My dad picked us up from the last day of school with the truck packed and ready to take off on an adventure. It was the best surprise a child could receive. And so, we left for the summer traveling around B.C and Alberta, visiting Aunts and Uncles, Cousins and our Grandparents. Still, to this day it is the summer that I will never forget, we had many laughs and many wonderful memories were made, one of them is visiting The Enchanted Forest. And that is how it ended up scribbled onto my summer bucket this year.
Since Jeremy had never been to The Enchanted Forest before the trip was, even more, fun and magical if I do say so myself. It was nice to get to share my childhood memories with the one I love and get to make new memories with each other. We did all that the Enchanted Forest offered from a romantic little boat ride to scenic trail walk through the woods and along the creeks board walk, to sitting in all the figurine houses and we even got our scenic walk diplomas at the end!
This trip was one that I would do again but next time we would bring Lexi our little border collie because you can bring your dog. We never thought of calling to ask but we sure wish we did. This trip washed away all the stresses and we just laughed enjoying where we were and had a great time crawling inside the tiny houses, it truly made me smile. HE made me smile with all the silly thing he did just to get me to laugh.
