September Wine

Arrived PeachLand.

In front of Okanagan Lake.

One Friday in early September, we left Vancouver for Okanagan area which is about 300 km away.  It was our weekend getaway.

It was cool and bit windy, but it's so nice walking along the lake (a tiny part of the lake).

It's a cute small town.

We had a light and late lunch at Bliss.

Had Thai curry soup with some bread, and it was all right.

After lunch, we went to the Antlers Beach.

The water's cold, but felt so good!!

We then moved to the Hardy Falls.

The warning sign about the bear kind of scared us.

It's a small hiking (more like walking).  There were several small bridges and we looked at the little river/stream, and there were many salmons.

They are called "Kokanee Salmon".

And look what we found in the end of the trail...

Kind of cute.

Took a rest by the water fall.

Well, lucky we didn't meet the bear.

We drove back to the beach in Peachland because Taddy wanted to swim in the lake.

Nobody was swimming besides him...

After Taddy's short swim in the lake, we drove to Westbank, which is 20 minutes driving from Peachland. We came to Apple Blossom, and it's first time for us to stay in a Bed and Breakfast in Canada.

A lot of decorations in the house and garden, a lots of flowers.  The house is on a hill and there's a well maintained path leading you to the house, if you go from the front.

We are at the first floor.

This is the Spartan room we stayed.

Nice and cozy.  All the four guest rooms in this B&B are named after some types of apples.

The owner of B&B recommended several restaurants in towm, and we picked a Greek restaurant, "Aegean Grill" for the night.

Since we had a light lunch, we were quite hungry.

Taddy ordered a glass of wine. By the way, Okanagan is famous for wineries.

Pita bread, it's pretty good.

Taddy had Lamb dish.

And Fiona had Calamari dish.

The food is sooo good!!

The restaurant exceeded our expectation. The quality and quantity were very satisfying 

We had a great evening. And went back to the B&B.
