Spion Kop

One of the things that I love about British Columbia is how quickly you can go from civilization to actual wilderness. We noted it first in Fernie and again here in the Okanagan Valley. For example, one of the trailheads to Spion Kop, a popular local hiking area, lies just 4km from our doorstep. It was there that we met up with a couple of experienced Kelowna cyclists, Miles and Doug, for our latest adventure. We followed the red trail to the summit.…

digs

It's now been over a week since we landed in the Okanagan Valley. We've not only settled into our new digs but have jumped into our new roles as resort caretakers, with both feet I should add. To say that there is a lot to learn would be a huge understatement. That said, I believe we're making the transition as well as could be expected.

The sale of our house…

lake

When Rebecca and I moved back to Canada 1 month ago, we had no real plan for where we'd ultimately live or what we would end up doing. We have always contended though that when the time came for us to work again, we would just figure something out. Well, now we have a plan. In a couple of weeks, we'll be relocating from Fernie to Lake Country to begin new positions that we accepted over the weekend. We play…
