My Swimming Lesson at Shuswap Falls RV Park

On our third day at Shuswap Falls RV Park, I wanted to drive the golf cart to the pool, but my feet couldn’t reach the pedals, darn it.

So I had to let a taller person do the driving while I hung out the back.

I was so excited to be going to the pool!

First thing, I got a safety lesson and was told about the pool rules.

I tested the water temperature with my hand.

Then, with my foot.

Brrrr! That water was cold! I almost changed my mind about the whole thing!

But Annie coaxed me back.

She said it might be easier if I eased myself in on the steps at the shallow end. I took my water gun with me as a security measure.

The shallow end is for sissies, so I decided to go to the deep end, where I spotted a rather large wave.

This was rather disconcerting, so I asked Leslie, the CEO of Canadian Only, for some encouragement.

At one point, I thought she was going to push me in!

I planted myself at the water’s edge and aimed my water gun at anyone tryin’ to fool with me. (My right foot got wet!)

By that time, Annie was already in the pool. She came over to have a photo taken with me.

She tried to get me into the pool, too. It took a while to convince me.

She became quite persuasive.

I gotta admit, she did try to gently ease me in.

We actually ended up having quite a lot of fun!

I don’t know why, but swimming makes me thirsty.

The best part was chillin’ on the deck chairs afterwards.

Mexican Lasagna on the BBQ

We ate very well at Shuswap Falls RV Park. Leslie, the CEO of Canadian Only showed us how to make a Mexican Lasagna on the BBQ!

First, she got the ground beef ready.

Then she chopped up some onions (and other stuff).

After frying it all up on the stove top, we took it out to the BBQ. Leslie put some tortilla wraps on the bottom of a lasagna pan, then put the spicy beef mixture on top.

She added some more tomato sauce.

Then she put some shredded cheese on it… mmmm! And made another layer.

Yet another layer and even more cheese.

Then she baked it in the BBQ. The hardest part was waiting for it to be done. Waiting and waiting.

Finally, it was done! Leslie served it up.

Dinner on the deck. It was soooo delish!

I didn’t even mind helping with the dishes afterward!

I been wanting to come here fer ages! It got a rave review on the Canadian Only website and we had such a fun time here. Business as usual!

We were well-armed with mosquito stuff and a fly swatter.

I climbed a few trees.

Sat on the deck for a while. It got sweltering hot!

We had to go inside to cool down sometimes.
