Yup – It’s Spring

I’ve been taking a break from the northern -20° climes …

Site of the juvenile snowboarding venue – 2018 Arctic Winter Games, Fort Smith, NWT

… and experiencing much warmer weather in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia. 17°C to be exact.

This is the NK’Mip First Nation winery and resort just outside of Osoyoos. M and I didn’t stay there (or swim in the pool), but we did stop for a really fantastic lunch. Osoyoos is about 45 minutes’ drive – through stunning wine country – from our home.

The grape vines are still dozing, but they will soon be fully awake.

After buying some favourite wines, we moseyed back. This photo is of a reflection over Osoyoos Lake.

Here it is again, right side up.

Having a break from the continuing cold weather in the north has been wonderful. *Sigh*  🙂

  1. Gorgeous. Did you take the “right side up” picture from the water? You seem on top of it. So glad that you are taking a well-deserved vacation. Enjoy.
    P.S. Noticed those people in the hot tub. Can’t do that here. It’s warmer where you are, and I’m farther south!

    1. Thank you! 🙂

      No, I wasn’t in the water, just on the beach. I trimmed the photo to give that effect.

      Thanks, I am enjoying my break very much. 🙂 The weather here has been lovely – warm, gentle, awakening.

  2. The scenery is wonderful, the lake is sparkling, but the most exciting thing is wondering what bottle of wine you might be sending me. I’ll keep an eye the mailbox… 😉

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
