The Top 5 Things to Do in Penticton with Kids

Just a four-hour drive from Vancouver, Penticton is a lake city with small town charm, yet lots to do. We explored Penticton with our two kids, ages 7 (Fraser) and 3 (Douglas), for a week. It’s hard to choose our favourite activities so we left it up to them! Here goes. Read more…

Langley & Fort Langley, British Columbia: Wine, Dine, Stomp… and Celebrate the Fall

With the kids back at school and summer now likely to be a distant and vague memory, we have officially fallen into fall. But, of course, the cooler temperatures bring with it a perfect season to finally harvest – and benefit from – BC’s lush, verdant and fruitful landscape.  In fact, both Langley and Fort Langley, just east of Vancouver, offer up reason to celebrate the fall season with a fun grape-stomping event and Cranberry Festival.

Train Spotting: Highway 1 Craigellachie to Field, British Columbia, Canada

We decided to end the second wonderful day of train spotting at the beautiful Three Valley Lake Chateau. Built and operated by the Bell family, this is an ideal spot for the rail fan. With excellent accommodation and restaurant, the feature for us was Three Valley Gap Ghost Town which includes a roundhouse with several rail cars and locomotive. And the meticulously dismantled, moved and reconstructed CPR’s Bellevue Hotel – complete with the original crockery and the historic menu of the day. Get a great preview from 3valley.com. Read more…

From Osoyoos to Christina Lake then onto Nakusp Hot Springs – Circle Tour day 4 and 5

Another fine sunny day for a drive along Highway 3 on our way to Christina Lake.

It is there on their property that you can see a Tipi and a Tiny House from the road as you head out of the Osoyoos Valley. Read more…

The Lower Fraser Canyon, British Columbia

According to Wikipedia the Fraser Canyon is “an 84 km landform of the Fraser River where it descends rapidly through narrow rock gorges in the Coast Mountains en route from the Interior Plateau of British Columbia to the Fraser Valley.”  For Suzan and I it is a beautiful place to drive through enroute to the interior of BC.

West Coast Railway Museum Squamish

I have been a railway fan forever. There is nothing to compare with the sound of a racing steam engine whistling for a crossing on a cold winter morning. You can imagine my delight to find there is an awesome railway museum not far from Vancouver that is home to an operating Classic Royal Hudson steam engine. Read more…
