The Okanagan Valley is a wine lovers paradise. Similar to Napa and Sonoma, it’s dotted with pretty wineries and wonderful spots to eat. We’ve spent the last few days sampling wines and playing tourist.
Our first stop was See Ya Later Ranch. It’s perched half way up a mountain with stunning views of a gorgeous valley and Skaha lake.
The day turned warmer than we anticipated so I was thrilled to discover it was a dog-friendly spot and we were able to bring Lucy onto the deck to enjoy the view. Of course, she decided their front lawn was where nature called her which was a tad embarrassing.
As we headed north we stopped at several new housing developments to check things out. The prices here are through the roof! Vancouverites are escaping the city with huge profits from their homes and driving these prices up. This is a popular spot to retire and we can see why.
The next day I wore layers because these temperatures fluctuate depending on both the day and altitude. This time Lucy stayed in the trailer with the AC set to come on if it got too hot.
We had a wonderful time tasting wines at the Black Hills Winery. Lunch was served on the patio with views of their sparkling swimming pool and vineyards.
After lunch, we stopped back at the trailer to catch up on email and walk Lucy along the beach. Why is it that dogs sniff something that looks innocuous then hurl themselves to the ground and roll all over it?
The weather changed abruptly as we drove into the hills for a bird’s eye view of Lake Osoyoos. I’m afraid of heights but this picture was too good not to capture.
We’re driving back to the coast tomorrow and hopping a ferry over to Vancouver Island. We’ve loved our time in the Okanagan Valley and will be back. Of course, we’re on vacation, but the pace of life is slow here and the scenery is gorgeous.
Note- I’m sharing my daily outfit choices because many have asked to see what I wear while traveling in our RV. My pictures are grainy because they’re being snapped with an iPhone.
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
