Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
I have been fortunate in my life to live in one of the most beautiful spots on the globe — Lake Country, BC, Canada.
Lake Country is a district municipality which combines the towns of Winfield, Oyama and Carr’s Landing. We are located in the Central Okanagan of BC, with Vernon a 20 minute drive to our North and Kelowna an equal distance to the South. The town, at a population of 13,000, is still largely rural and somewhat agrarian, with orchards and vineyards within minutes of our city centre.
The name, Lake Country, is derived by the three main lakes we nestle between — Okanagan Lake, Wood Lake, and Kalamalka Lake. Lake Country is the type of place where, if you let it, the beauty of the natural setting will settle into your bones and nourish your soul.
With our proximity to larger communities, Lake Country becomes an excellent starting off point for daytrips and entertaining journeys, and in this blog, I will share mine with you.
