We love the Okanagan, both the lake and the region. Great fruits in season with lots of orchards and fruit stands along the road. Oh yeah, and LOTS of wineries in the area. Who gets tired of wineries?  Our grandsons learned to ride their bikes during this trip (without training wheels) at 4 years old! Yay! Campground: Okanagan Lake North …
