Mr. Tiki got to go to the annual Kaena winery Luau in Santa Ynez valley on Saturday.

He met the owners and winemakers






The food and wine were outstanding!







Lots of friendly guests












After we got back to Santa Barbara I took Mr. Tiki to Chuck's of Hawaii for his last supper. Mai Tais and steaks were in order, watch out for the Tiki torches.













And that is the end to this chapter of the Mr. Tiki story. He is packed and heading down the highway.

Another fine adventure with great people. Wendy

I'm been in contact with his host and he's doing well. I think he's waiting for the end of vacation for a mass photo posting

I am sorry for the delay in my Mr.Tiki update!!



I can say he has had a great time and yes Hamo, he was in one gutter here but we managed to get to him just in time!!
I will be updating with photos over the next few days so you can see what he has been up to. I have already shipped him out so there will probably soon be lots of updates on here.

Ebay bid but no pay, No respond, No good.

Hey Skip, I would love to get one of your lights for our Hideaway one day!
I'll see if I can make up for that other horrible Canadian and we can test the postal service again!!

Well thank you, but damn beyond the trouble with that one guy, shipping to or from Canada is a real pain.

I have got things from China quicker.

Do Terrance and Philip run the Canadian post office?

I knew Mr.Tiki was coming and I was hoping he would get here in time to come with us on our holiday. We were taking a trip to Salmon Arm and the Okanagan Valley in BC which is about 8 hours or so from us here in Blairmore Alberta. It was down to the wire as we left town we checked the mail and sure enough he had literally just arrived. Perfect he's coming on a road trip!!

On our way out to BC we headed North West to just outside Calgary and set up base tent for the nite. This is where we opened up Mr.Tiki. He was relieved to get out of his package and it was great to see him.



We were staying the nite here so we could go to Calaway Park which is a family amusement park. Mr.Tiki was fine with this as he wanted to hit up some rides and stay out of that box! We still had lots of driving to do that day so we enjoyed the park then got on our way.

Here's a shot of yours truly just outside the park.



We were then on our way towards Salmon Arm. We stopped in at Lake Louise Interpretive Center which is in Banff National Park. It's a beautiful area. Lake Louise has an elevation of 1600m.

Our whole holiday was covered in smoke. The fires that were burning all over BC and Southern Alberta were crazy this year. Only on our very last day of holidays did we see some actual blue sky.

"Lake Louise is a hamlet in Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies, known for its turquoise, glacier-fed lake ringed by high peaks and overlooked by a stately chateau. Hiking trails wind up to the Lake Agnes Tea House for bird's-eye views. There's a canoe dock in summer, and a skating rink on the frozen lake in winter. The Lake Louise Ski Resort features a wildlife interpretive center at the top of a gondola."


Mr.Tiki liked the Centers architecture



There was lots to look at and he tried striking up a conversation with these wolves but only after I told him they weren't real!



He also liked the wildlife inside too as this Mama Mountain Goat and Baby were displayed.



He also just had to sit on this display which was of a mountain guide named Edward Feuz who was one of many Swiss guides that the Canadian Pacific Railway brought to Canada to lead visitors through these famous mountains.



Once outside again we checked out one of the old, vintage chair lifts that was once used here in the mountains.

Here he is with our oldest son. (Some of you might remember him as TabooBaby! But that was quite a few years back now!)



Here he is in a retired more recent chair lift.



Back on the road, our next stop was in Golden, BC. There is a cool 50's retro diner where we always stop with the kids. Kind of a tradition now to stop there and grab some lunch. Mr.Tiki liked all the pictures of music and movie stars on the walls and the cool chrome decor.








Mr.Tiki said he was still recovering a little from being with Dusty down there in Santa Barbara so he didn't mind playing the sober Canadian tourist part for a little bit!

Next stop, Salmon Arm BC.

More to come.........
