We spent a couple of nights with some of Nina's Canadian family at their house on Vaseux Lake in the Okanagan region of BC. They were kind enough to conduct us on a tour of a few of the local vineyards, show us some of the local wild life, as well as allow us to enjoy the tranquility of their loverly lakeside cottage.

It was the first time we had been to this wine growing region of BC in the summer and we were more than a little surprised by the intensiveness of the activity. It looked like the entire valley was covered in vines or orchards.
