One of our most recent and popular water sports this summer consisted of stand up water paddle boarding which we understand combines the skill of surfing with that of kayaking or canoeing. An interesting watch especially when the participants progressed into doing yoga on these boards.Enjoy the rest if your day. F. N.

Local Scenery

It was perfect weather for a plunge into Okanagan Lake this summer and many people took advantage of the chance to leap off of the old ferry docks  in Gellatly Bay. This area is a matter of minutes from our home and we have spent many a day enjoying the walkway along the lake.

Local Scenery

On August 1st we were treated by the Canadian Forces Snowbirds officially known as the Royal Canadian Air Force's 431 Air Demonstration Squadron. The Snowbirds are Canada's military aerobatics air show flight demonstration team made up of skill, professionalism and treamwork. The squadron consists of nine 11 CT-114 Tutors. Although there are 80 Canadian Forces personnel on duty, 24 persons travel during the show season.  Their demonstration which lasts approximately an hour is truly a spectacular and unforgetable event.

Seasonal Scenery

Hello Fellow Bloggers,

Although we have been missing for a bit more than a couple of years we have not forgotten the enjoyment of this blogger site.  We see that many changes have taken place here in the interim and hopefully we will meet the challenge of doing it right.
Our lovely summer is slowly changing into autumn however in spite of same many people are still enjoying the tail end of lazy days on the beach
which is located approximately ten minutes by car from our home.
Thank you for checking our site and enjoy the rest of your day.

Then & Now

While we were showing you photos of the southern part of Okanagan our Province has been experiencing record breaking heat with the accompanying dryness. Consequently, as expected we are dealing with a number of aggressive forest fires. Although we ourselves do not appear to be in danger, at least not in the immediate future, our valley is plagued by smoke. The two submissions represent the before and current view taken from our deck.

We are having guests arriving this evening who we expect shall be with us until mid month. As we are keen on spending quality time with our company, we shall be signing off for a period with this writing.

Thank you for visiting our blog and we hope you are all enjoying your summer.

Oliver 3

Further up, we find that a foot bridge crosses this body of flowing water enabling hikers and bikers to explore the opposite side. Incidentially this paved walkway goes on and on for many miles.

Oliver 2

Having once been covered with cacti and sage brush, you can see that Oliver has now been cultivated into lush productive land well known for its vineyards and orchards. These photos show each side of the paved walking trail which perfectly represent a visual of this lush community

Oliver 1

The endless paved walking trail referred to in our previous posting ideal for bikers as well as walkers.

Saturday, August 1, 2009


Boasting a population of approximately 5,000 residents, Oliver has several very comfortable R.V. parks. We chose this particular one due to it's close proximity to the centre of town as well as a wonderful paved walking trail which appears to be endless.
