The viewing area of Prospect Point shown here affords superb views of West Vancouver, North Vancouver and the Lions Gate Bridge. It's also the highest point in Stanley Park, which explains why I had to resort to pushing my bicycle up the trail at one point in getting there because it was just too long of an uphill grade.
This dock in Peachland reflects a very serene scene. In summertime it's the exact opposite; laden with bodies, you'll barely be able to see the dock, or Okanagan Lake for that matter, because of the popularity among locals and tourists alike.
The sun sets in the West, and the West Coast is a great place to be if you're a fan of catching glimpses of spectacular colour combinations. They come in all shapes and colours, with accessories too like a reflective cloud seen here.
I imagine this ski hill in Whistler looks very different in the winter. In fact, I don't think you'd be able to see the hill as it would be teeming with people. If you aren't a skier then visit Whistler during the summer - it's probably the most pristine part of Canada, your allergies will disappear while there due to the lack of pollutants, and the money that was dumped into the town's infrastructure for the 2010 Winter Olympics helped things along in spades. As some tourists pointed out from Perth, Australia: "Whistler reminds me of Disneyland... you know, how everything is just so perfect looking. We came here after visiting Vancouver and thought that was absolutely beautiful, then we came here and it's even nicer! Bloody hell!"
Kelowna has done a great job of developing the waterfront and building a lovely boardwalk to get you from The Dolphins condos and The Okanagan Grand Resort Hotel to City Park. There was a break in the foot traffic here on Saturday.
Nary a soul was around this path leading to a most serene seating area of reflection at an Okanagan Falls winery. It brought Robert Frost's The Road Not Taken to life: "I took the road less traveled by, and that has made all the difference." The only thing missing was the actual glass of wine because, afterall, the combination of poetry and wine is as natural a match as chocolate and peanut butter. But what about poetry and wine and chocolate? ... hmmm... with peanut butter later of course. Oh, and cheese because there's wine. I need a really big picnic basket.
