Quick thoughts on Penticton
Ms. HHV and I are up in Penticton this weekend to cheer on some compadre's competing in Ironman Canada today, and so I can sign up for next year... the swim start truly is the most amazing spectacle in sport. Almost 3000 racers left the beach together for what will be a 17 hour race for a few of them.
To say this town is booming is a considerable understatement. Condos going up everywhere. Beautiful place. Must be the Olympic factor. Or maybe it's the spillover from the real retirement capital of Canada 45 minutes up the 97?
Open thread for your comments, links etc... next post likely from Vancouver on Tuesday.
