The Wests Travelled West

We just got back from our trip to Kelowna, BC and what a great time we had.  The drive out there wasn't as spectacular as we would've preferred, with rain, snow and fog, but we did get there safely on Thursday night.  Friday night was the House Concert hosted by my best friend and his wife.  We had a good sized crowd, a lot of who I knew when I was a kid, back when I was just starting to play the violin.  I had a great time catching up with old friends.  Saturday afternoon we played for another gathering and enjoyed a traditional Swiss meal later that day.  Saturday evening, we did an impromptu performance for another group of friends.  My wife felt pretty spoiled, getting to play a beautiful grand piano.  Thank you so much to our hosts who out did themselves in the planning and organization!!  Sounds like there were a few other people that would've loved to come, so we might try and do this again next year!  We got home early Sunday evening, after a much more relaxed drive, and have a couple days to get back into the swing of life around home here!
