I was asked to give a slide show last Saturday at the Alexis Creek Daze. Alexis Creek is about 2/3 of the way to Williams Lake. It was lovely to leave at a more civilized hour and enjoy some of the flowers on the roadside. Particularly showy was a species of fleabane.
At the Alexis Creek Daze, the morning had been filled with poker rides for both horses and atvs. Patrick and I arrived in time for the reining demonstration after lunch. It was very hot. Apparently the temperature reached 32C.
There was also arm wrestling, a talent show, and a tug of war. Before I could take a picture of the latter, the rope broke and both sides crashed to the ground! Thirteen gallons of Chili had been entered into the chili competition, and that is what we all ate for supper with baked potatoes and home grown salad. What a treat.
