Wine tasting within vineyards. Swimming in the refreshing lake with the sun illuminating my face. The smells and sounds of busy farmers’ markets in the city. Patio parties with views of the valley and boats zipping to and fro. It’s the simple things that make my Okanagan summers special.
And this summer I am making it all about the Okanagan, my home valley. From zipline adventures to my favourite restaurants I’ll be venturing out to bring my favourites to you all summer long! Originally, I had planned to begin at the end of June when the rain has petered out but we are having an odd season. It seems as though we have skipped over the rain and are already reaching record breaking temperatures. Just the other day we shattered a record for the beginning of June as we reached 38˚C (100.4˚F).
So what better time than now? The skies are at their best, the vineyards are well on their way and the beaches are populated with sun-worshipers and the lake is full of life.
Each week I’ll be writing, tweeting, posting on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest about my weekly adventures from luxury vineyard concerts and dinners to affordable self guided culinary tours that anyone can do. So follow along with #MyOkanaganSummer!
As you may have also noticed I’ve slowly been releasing guides which are free downloadable PDF files with no charge to you! I only ask that you share and spread the word. And if you happen to love my Okanagan guides please share using #MyOkanaganSummer.
