*SOMEBODY HELP! I CAN NOT GET PHOTOS TO STOP LOADING SIDEWAYS. NO OPTIONS EVEN IF I ROTATE ON MY END. THANK YOU!*
Sorry about how photos are loading!!!

We stayed with my parents in Salmon Arm for a couple days and then headed to our next stop which was in Vernon.
Along the way we stopped in at this roadside flea market and Mr.Tiki was happy to see a decent selection of Hawaiian attire.





We even found these cool, old, Toes on the Nose Shag Art Work shorts with great graphics of his mugs/bowls.




The reason we were heading to Vernon, BC was for this place..........Tiki Village Motel!!





I've been meaning to stop here for years but just never did so figured might as well since we have Tiki royalty with us! Plus, I really did want to check this place out at least once and so did Mr.Tiki. I'll post an update and some more pics over in locating Tiki when I get some time.

In our room was this unbelievable Tiki Ice Bucket in Polynesian Fire Red!! I know these are Tiki Ice Buckets because the label told me so! Mr.Tiki wanted to get a shot of this Tiki artifact!



Here's the famed original Witco Lamps that to this day all but 4 of the rooms still have inside. I also saw one in their lobby area.



One last shot here



After this, it is on to Kelowna to meet up with friends and a little drinking with Mr.Tiki!

Mahalo, TabooDan

Cool stuff, Dan. This was worth the wait!

Hopefully you've got a lot more pictures of Tiki Village Motel; Critiki needs some, plus a rating. And more could be added to its Locating Tiki page.

We should be seeing some Cap City Tiki Crawl pics soon. In the meantime, my list of potential Mr Tiki hosts is getting smaller. If you would be interested in hosting Mr Tiki at some point, post a reply here or send me a PM

I saw a photo of Mr. Tiki at the crawl on Instagram yesterday. Disappointed no photos of that have shown up here yet.

I was at the Sacramento Tiki Crawl aka Cap City Crawl all three days and I never ran into Mr. Tiki. I don't know where he was hiding but I did see a photo of him posted on fb. Wendy

Thank you Dr Mojo!!!

Mr Tiki is getting ready to depart again, to a state where he has visited only once. But one he didn't return from!
