Relaxing, not recovering from the wine tasting.
There are many vineyards and wineries to visit in the Kelowna area, some small, some larger and all with the opportunity to taste the wine produced and then for you to buy the product.
Some of the small ones cater to the client that travels by car, certainly a more pleasant place to visit, than the ones where a bus load of visitors descend en masse.
The smaller ones also offer a picnic spot to not only enjoy a drink but also the view across the lake. You could be one who spots Ogopogo and takes that all elusive photo to gain world fame. Should be easy to do with all the digital cameras around these days.
A walk along the Promenade.
"New Condos North of Downton."
4 years ago the land that houses some newly built condos was a small harbour and what had looked like a Saw mill or Lumber yard for receiving logs from along the Okanagan lake.
This sculpture shows a group of people lounging on the beach.
"New Apartments or Condominiums."
These buildings are at the end of Waterfront park , a new development in the area, close to Knox Hill.
"Grand Hotel park and mini lake."
The walk or promenade continues along the beach side and passes clsoe to the Grand Hoel, a relatively new development.
The promenade continues past several reastaurants , a dock area for small boats on Lake Okanagen . Other places to see are the Fintry Queenanother ship that sailed the alkes in the area, a model of Ogopogo, the legendary monster in the Lake.
"Sculpture and the Fintry Queen."
Proceeding south along the Promenade one passes the Fintry Queen and then the Sails a sculpture to recognise the sailing regattas on the Lake.
Then we come to the City park, with the walks and playground areas, the Sports track and Bowling Green. Not to forget the Rose garden.
"City park beach with floating bridge on left."
"Part of Bridge and the Beach area."
"Pick a willow tree for shade on a hot day."
"The end of the Promenade."
At this point the pathway returns to the streets for a few blocks, but the walk as shown can take a few hours especialy when taking photos or visiting some of the places an the way.
Always time for a coffee or meal and plenty of shade along the way.
Time also for a boat cruise or sail.
