Okanagan Adventure: Part 2

Hello,

There is nothing I love more than walking down memory lane, as long as it’s the good lane. The other weekend my family and I headed to Summerland, BC to visit family. We only stayed the one night so we jammed a lot in. The day we planned to leave we hit up some classics and some new places. If you haven’t yet check out my Okanagan Adventure Part 1 to see our trip to Naramata and Poplar Grove.

Alright, let’s pick up where we left off. After leaving the winery, we headed to my aunt’s place and from there we headed into the heart of down town Summerland and took a stroll through the summer market.

I loved this sign so I had to take a picture, I also completely support pesticide free food.

I at first was completely baffled by this. Bubble Waffle cones?! I’m a gluten and dairy free person, so my imagination was spinning thinking what would that even be like?! I guess I’ll never know.

Their food truck was the cutest by far, very Instagramable.

Only a few shops were open along the closed off street where the market was taking place. We did however brows an artisans shop. There was lots of quaint little things I would have loved to take pictures with but I would have been there for hours, and my dad had the get home its.

But, before we could leave Summerland we had to stop and take some pictures of this church. It’s one of the most beautiful buildings in Summerland and that mural is breath taking.

Naturally I needed a photo in front of it, I also took one of my mom since she’s always behind the camera and of course we selfied. Then we ran like the wind to the car before my dad got too agitated.

Our last and final stop before saying goodbye to Summerland was Granny’s Fruit Stand. The best place to buy fruit and ice cream around. They even have a cute little bakery set up. This is a must stop if you’re ever in the area.

Visiting Granny’s Fruit Stand always takes me back to when I was a little girl and the whole family would stop here for ice cream. Summerland is small, nothing like Vancouver, yet it also feels like home when ever I’m there. I hope you enjoyed getting a glimpse into the less popular areas of the Okanagan, and I say that with love. Most people have no idea where Summerland is.

Where is your favourite place to vacation? Do you have any traditional vacay destinations? Let me know in the comments down below!
