The Wilderness Retreat

The weather didn't really cooperate, but boy did we have fun! 14 great ladies, 1 house boat and a whole lot of shenanigans. A lot of the pictures were NSFB (Not Safe for Blog), but here's a general overview. We drove out to Sicamous early Friday morning to board the Wildness Retreat. Friday afternoon was pretty much the only sun we had and we were sure to take it all in. We suntanned on the upper deck until we docked for the night and had a campfire. While the rest of the days were rainy, we'd sit in the hot tub or play cards inside. Saturday night, the rain let up and we danced for hours. Someone (if not everyone) was brave enough to jump in the freezing cold lake every day. The general rule was: the first time is awful, the second time is worse and the third time is awesome!

Lindsay (captain and bride) and Carly (co-captain) were amazing. Sunday brought some rough seas, but they navigated us to safety like true pirates.

On our way home we saw bears, elk, mountain goats and these guys:

 It may not have been sunny, but we certainly made the best of it and had an absolute blast.
