Again better late than never................


Me and Rebleangel when for a road trip to the Okanagan. We planned to hit up a few vinyards in the Oliver Area on friday and on Sat head up to Kelowna for the night and hit the Myra Tressles on Sunday - What a great trip!!!

We left very early Friday so we could be in Oliver early which worked well cause it was way too damn hot to sit in a car in the afternoon.
Our first stop was Burrowing Owl on the way there with past this barn heritage site
