Two years ago, my husband, Mark and I left the Gatineau Hills of Wakefield, Quebec for the Bluebunch Wheatgrass and Sagebrush of the Okanagan Valley. In Wakefield, we lived in old 1880’s blacksmith’s house with creaking floorboards and a stately staircase. In Penticton, our home is modern. We have a lovely apartment we rent out as a holiday home.
Since our move, I’ve fallen in love with my new town. Not just the vistas, but also the lifestyle and the distinctive flavor of the surrounding towns. This blog is an attempt to highlight what makes this area so different from any other part of Canada and share all my adopted home has to offer.
