Okanagan Valley Road Trip

My husband and I went on a little road trip on Labor Day weekend. We drove 5 hours out of the city to the interior of British Columbia - more specifically, to the beautiful Okanagan Valley, home of vineyards and orchards galore. The drive was long and all of the twists and turns of the road were starting to make me feel nauseous ... but it was all worth it when we drove 'round the bend and saw this:

Sooooooo beautiful! Our weekend was full of wine tastings and pretty scenic drives. Oh, and food. Lots of food. We came home with fresh peaches, apricots, pears, zucchini, corn and cherries. All locally grown.

I also came home with a renewed conviction about eating fruits and veggies that are in season, supporting local farmers and, as much as possible, growing your own produce. But more about that another day!
