Easter Weekend Adventures

It started Saturday morning with a quick trip to the Kelowna’s Farmers Market off Cooper Road with Kayla and Adrian. We were on the lookout for Valley-wide famous Breakfast Wraps. I didn’t know it at the time but the Okanagan Street Food truck has a real location now, almost disappointing until we find other breakfast wraps that are good approximations of the taste we were looking for. The Farmer’s Market surprises yet again! PS, there were Alpaca’s.

The day was sunny and the weather getting warmer so the next logical progression was to meet Rob and Ryan downtown for a nibble on a patio under the sun. We take in the atmosphere at Hanna’s Lounge at 1352 Water Street but staring out at the South Okanagan and down the lake proves too tempting. We hit the road, looking for any excuse to travel along the lake. We reach Penticton and feel the vibe at Salty’s Beach House at 1000 Lakeshore Drive. They have sangria, mussles and fish tacos and all of these things are A-OK with us.

We bake a little longer and go for a quick walk Lakeshore. The boys regail me with tales of Naramata, I’ve never been so we hit the road again. I’m excited to visit Therapy Vineyards at 940 Debeck Road, I’ve enjoyed the wine on many occasions and we try to sneak in a tasting but get there when they close at 6pm. People leaving their jobs recommend places in town that are must-see and must-taste, the locals are very welcoming!

The sun starts setting and the view is ridiculous. We begin our casual drive back to Kelowna, so ends our Saturday. Sunday the weather tried to one-up itself. The weekend is still in full-swing and our adventure continues. Adam and I head downtown Kelowna for brunch at The Boh at 524 Bernard Avenue. Eggs Benedict, we stick with the usual but are allowed to add personal additions to our meals by the easy-going staff. Breakfast is delicious, as usual.

After spending the previous day on the other side of Okanagan Lake, we head down towards Pandosy Village in Kelowna (keep your eye on this part of town, this is going to be the next hip place to live) and see if the Kelowna Cycle is open, missed them but made a serious note to return soon. We keep traveling up Lakeshore taking in the breathtaking scenery and pointing out houses we “would totally buy.” A few stops at cliff’s overlooking the lake and I remember a delicious treat resides over the next hill… you may remember from a previous post our trip to Carmelis Goat Cheese Farm at 170 Timberline Road. It’s warm out so some goat cheese gelato sounds perfect. We also see our goatly friends.

We head back home to fix up the bikes and consider maybe the first longboard of the season. It’s only 3:45 on Sunday and the adventure isn’t done yet.
