Canada Trip Day 22: Scenic Farm lands along Eagle Pass to Salmon Arm

4 July 2010 - Our destination for the day was at Kamloops. The drizzling had stopped and the sky though cloudy was bright. As we leave Eagle Pass and enter Lake Shuswap area, the mountainous terrains changed to fields of farm lands and a calm water body, the lake, accompanied us offering different views.

We stopped by Pedro Gonzales for some home-made ice cream. According to our guide, it is the best in Canada. If I remember correctly, mine was of chocolate vanilla flavour. I was happily taking pictures, having my ice-cream and making small notes of our travel. It was just great to stop at a homey fruit and garden store. There was a lot of stuff home-made including a whole cabinet of jams in assorted flavours. I was thrilled that mum bought cherries because I love cherries so much. This was like heaven because cherries are so expensive in equatorial countries. Here, I had the whole bag to myself!
