Thank You Kelowna!

After a full day of talks at the Henderson Library in Winnipeg on Saturday, April 9, I headed to the airport and flew out to Vancouver. A quick sleep and it was time to head to the airport once again. This time I was headed for Kelowna where I was going to be speaking to the Kelowna & District Genealogical Society. 

There were only 5 of us on the flight, so we were asked to sit at the back of the plane for proper weight distribution. A short 37 minutes after take-off, we were touching down in the beautiful Okanagan Valley. 

The room was full of researchers eager to learn about researching their Scottish ancestry.  Two talks in the morning, a bowl of hearty beef and barley soup and three talks in the afternoon. We had a great time sharing resources and stories.

After the workshop was over, my hostess, Claire Burns-Smith took me on a lovely drive around Kelowna to see the beauty of this city. Mountains, a lake and total serenity. Then it was time to meet up with some others for a lovely dinner and some terrific conversation. All too soon, it was time to return to the airport for a flight back to Vancouver. 

Thank you K&DGS for a day of fun and learning. The day was incredibly energizing. I wish you well at your Fall Conference
