The purpose of this page is mainly
for my own enjoyment.Hopefully it will be fun for you too.For travelers
to my part of the world we have put links to local information.There are
also links to some of the things that interest us.You won`t find anything
here that will offend anyone,as my 11 year old daughter has had a hand
in it`s development.Anything written in a different colour than this paragraph
is a link.Thank you and enjoy!

The Okanagan Valley
The Okanagan Valley is situated in south central British Columbia,Canada.The exceptional climate makes this area a very desirable place to call home.Long known for it`s fruit production,it is fast gaining recognition for it`s fine wines.The Okanagan wine festivals offer a chance for all to taste the local product.Many producing orchards have been uprooted and transplanted with grapes.Tourism is one of(if not the largest)the major industry.Hot summers and an abundance of lakes attract tourists in the summer,mild winters and great skiing bring people in the winter.Excellent hunting and fishing attract sportsmen year round.Forestry is the mainstay of this area,mining and manufacturing add to the economy. Campion boats is one of Kelowna`s larger manufacturing companies,Freightliner bought Western Star trucks and is moving production south of the border.In the short term the move will hurt Kelowna,as Western Star was Kelowna`s largest employer.For a more extensive information on the Okanagan go to my Okanagan LINKS PAGE.
My personal favorites are:Fairview Mountain in Oliver.Predator Ridge ,Sunset Ranch, and Gallaghers Canyon in Kelowna.Ponderosa in Peachland(my home course so I`m a little biased)For extensive info on the Okanagan Courses try this link: Okanagan Golf
