Lazy day. Walked out of the hotel, turned left and fell in at the Caffe Artigiano for a spectacular, extra large latte with an extra dose of espresso. Beautiful coffee perfectly prepared by a lady who somehow managed to created the image of a leaf with the foam. An oatmeal-blueberry muffin completed the package and that was plenty until catering at the gig. Came back to the room and got tied into e-mail, practising and general laziness before it was time to get ready to fly to Kelowna.
Kelowna is located in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia on Okanagan Lake. A big tourist destination in the summer months, it's name is derived from the native term for female grizzly bear. We arrived late, 6:30, no sound check and just time for a quick bit of food in catering, a little practising in a quiet room I found with a sign on the door that read "show disconnect". I have no idea, there were just a couple of push brooms and a chair in what was no larger a space than a walk in closet. Before long it was time for us to hit the boards. Prospera Place is a small arena and we played to nearly 4,000 tonight. The sound was a bit of a struggle, it seemed very loud but we turned in what we felt was a very good show and the audience seemed to agree. What little we saw of Kelowna looks to be a beautiful city and I'm sorry we didn't have a little more time to explore it.
A runner back to the Legacy and Vancouver for a quick drink before turning in.
