Farewell, Sweet Lake Monster

So I’m pretty sad that the city of Kelowna smashed up the Ogopogo statue. I first met the illustrious Ogopogo on my first trip to Kelowna, when I went there with a band of travelling scientists. True story.

Me and a band of traveling scientists, sitting on a lake monster. As one does.

Whenever I went to Kelowna after that, I’d always go see the Ogopogo and it always made me smile. And I didn’t even realize that the last time I was there would be the last time I would see dear Ogo.

This photo is not actually the last time I saw the Ogopogo, as I didn’t take a photo the last time I was there. What was I thinking??

Apparently Kelowna decided that they want to put some sort of a water park there for kids and that it’s too dangerous for kids to climb on things and so they smashed the poor, innocent, unsuspecting lake monster to smithereens. 

Goodbye, sweet lake monster. You are missed.
