Girls just wanna have a fun weekend with a sprinkle of work. I had to take a trip to Vancouver Island to visit some accommodation properties, members of the BC Lodging and Campgrounds Association, to discuss marketing. I always mix in some fun so took along my besties. 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. As we pulled out from Nk’Mip campground and headed up the switchbacks (known as Anarchist Mountain), we passed where our friends Connie and Bruce live. 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…

Dancing in Princeton, British Columbia, Canada

From Osoyoos, (see previous Blog) we headed westwards toward home – but not before making one last stop in Princeton for the Seventh Annual Traditional Music Festival.  Considered the gateway to the Okanagan, Princeton is a charming hamlet about 300 kilometres from Vancouver and a convergent point for the Tulameen and Similkameen rivers.

Into the British Columbia Desert, Osoyoos

For as long as I can remember, my family and I have made an informal tradition of road-tripping through beautiful British Columbia every August. This year was no different, though our route veered slightly. We kicked off our travels with a quick dip down south, then veered back up via Osoyoos. Read more…

Relaxing in Ainsworth Hot Springs and Visiting Nelson, British Columbia

After packing up our camping gear for our one night-only stay at Kokanee Creek (with promises to the kids that we’d make another longer trip here next time), we hit the road for our 20-minute drive to the Ainsworth Hot Springs – famed for its hot springs (of course) and extraordinary scenery, surrounded by the Purcell Mountains and Kootenay Lake.  But, in my humble opinion, what makes Ainsworth especially unique is its dazzling caves.

Boston Bar and North Bend the Railway Center of the Fraser Canyon, BC, Canada

Both of these communities are engaging stops to explore the more recent history of the Fraser Canyon. Read more…
