Yes, this is the final part...
This is orchard country! The Okanagan produces amazing fruit. We gorged ourselves on cherries and also picked up some peaches and nectarines. There are some great vineyards here too. Yep - Canadian wine! BC produces some amazing wines (and some bad ones) but barely exports any, which is lucky for us but harsh on the rest of you. The biggest wineries are Jackson Triggs and Mission Hill. I didn't visit any wineries on this trip, but one of our fellow campers did, and the local liquor stores sell lots of the local stuff, so I did get to try various bottles. Yum, steak, asparagus and red wine was my favourite camping dinner.
Looking down on the town of Osoyoos and the warmest lake in Canada
Our own little oasis, complete with floating living room. This view from our campsite is to the South, looking towards the US border (the flags are visible in real life if you squint a bit, but I can't pick them out on the photo).
If you keep going East, personal experience from previous road and rail trips tells me that it's mountains all the way to Calgary, then grass all the way to Western Ontario, lakes, forests and rocks all the way to the Toronto suburbs, and farmland all the way to Montreal. There's a gap in my knowledge between Montreal and Nova Scotia, which are both fabulous. Future plans include Newfoundland, the Yukon, and I really want to go to the extreme far North, although I'm having trouble finding friends who share my attraction to the cold places on the planet. Mexico schmexico, let's go to Nunavut!
Having said that, BC is 5 times the size of the UK, in a country that has half of the UK's population. So we might just focus on exploring our own province a bit more first!
