A typical view in the Kelowna's Okanagan Valley which surrounds Lake Okanagan - an eight mile long lake and home of the Ogopogo monster. (No sightings to report.)
We visited the Naramata Bench area near Penticton, just south of Kelowna.
I got to visit some wineries and do some taste-testing. Best of all was the view and glorious summer-like weather. Yes, those are grapes in that photo.
I also did some hiking in the hills - and a lot of noisy singing - as we warded off potential bears. The name 'kelowna' comes from an aboriginal word meaning 'grizzly bear'.
Fortunately, the closest I got to bear, was a stuffed boar in a restaurant.

Can you believe I've never been to British Columbia!?
Looks like a beautiful place. I've wanted to go to that area for a long time.
