Vacationing in style

Driving south on Highway 97 this morning, it dawned on me that my whole family was vacationing today.  Tanya, Andre, Brian, Warren and Xavier are relaxing on the beach in Pornichet, France.  Tara and Chris are enjoying the Okanagan for the weekend, and Phil and I are exploring the south Okanagan wine country, one winery at a time.  I think this is the first time every we have all been on vacation at the same time.

Can't speak for the others, however, I can tell you that Phil and I are having the best time!

Had a wonderful visit with Tineke and Tyler, and their adorable little girls.  It was so nice of them to open up their home to us.

Sunday afternoon we have the chance to connect with Terry and Aaron.  So much fun catching up with old friends.  Top that off with a great lunch at The Peacock Perch pub in Summerland and the day was picture perfect.

Phil and I planned our week away to explore wine country and we are off to a  great start. We started at Deep Creek Estate Winery, where we had a lesson in old world wine making, tasted some lovely organic wines and bought a gift for a special someone.

Phil and I have decided to only stop at wineries with names that we like. So far, we have been to,  Deep Creek, Greata Ranch, Okanagan Crush Pad, Blasted Church, Hidden Chapel, Tangled Vines and Kraze Legs.  We have 13 bottles of wine in our hotel room!

Tomorrow we are going on a wine tasting tour.  I wonder how many more bottles we will add to the collection?   Keep you posted!!
