The day started early today as I had a 5 hour drive to Kelowna from Vancouver. Car was packed, coffee hot, maps at the ready… The weather was predictably unsettled, rain, sunshine, snow and fog. I experienced the vast expanses of cattle grazing ranches just out of Merritt, market gardens of Chilliwack, and the extremes of weather through the mountains. I stopped in the quaint town of Hope, where the “Rambo” movie was filmed. Beautiful quiet, sleepy town. I arrived in Kelowna and quickly made my way to the Okanagan Lavender & Herb Garden. I was met with a sample of lavender tea. I visited two different wineries. Tantalus & Summerhill Pyriamid. Two very different wineries with beautiful views of Lake Okanagan.
