What I did on my summer vacation...

Here's the final installment from my vacation in the Okanagan Valley.

We stayed at Spirit Ridge Resort

We visited wineries:

Dirty Laundry - check out their story!

Quinta Ferreira

Love how they use corks as mulch in their flower beds - must drink more wine!

Lunch at See Ya Later Ranch - and a wine tasting. An amazing view over the vineyard with the hills in the background. Loved the old barn on the property.

Stoneboat Vineyards - this one was in the valley on flat land. We liked (and bought) a couple of bottles here too.

We visited a few more but that gives you the idea - there are over 50 wineries just in the lower part of the Okanagan!

We golfed several times

We ate cherries, cherries and more cherries and there are still lots left!

And saw lots of peach, apricot and apple trees with the promise of more luscious fruit to come.

It was a wonderful trip, a real 'retreat' from our busy lives.
I HIGHLY recommend the Okanagan for a vacation.
