Kelowna Land and Orchard, on the hay wagon tour
We headed straight for the Kelowna Visitor Information Centre for some ideas of things to do. The practical choice was to go go-karting.

Several loops of the track and a couple hours later, we were on our way out of Kelowna, but first... a stop at Kelowna Land and Orchard. It had some rather flashy brochures at the visitor centre so we decided to stop by, we hear there are hay rides around the orchard! We pulled in, parked and hoped on a wagon just as it was leaving. The tour is, I think, around $2 and gives you a ride around the orchard, through the fields and to where they make their products. We were having fun, taking pictures and being the 3 loud girls at the back of the wagon, until we realized... we had all been here before. We had all gone to high school together and 4 years earlier, we had a school trip to the interior.
I think this is actually somewhere near Chilliwack on our way back from Kelowna
Other than spending a couple nights in Kelowna and reenacting the Louis Riel trial, we came here. To Kelowna Land and Orchard. And went on this same tour. No wonder that petting farm we parked beside looked so familiar. A couple moments of silence went by as we all experienced rather sudden and shocking dejavu. After the tour, we stopped by their store for some free ice wine tasting. A specialty of the Okanagan, ice wine is one of my favourite drinks, and here, they sell my absolute favourite ice wines, made from Granny Smith apples, which I had the pleasure of tasting and falling in love with. They make several apple products here and even sell logo'd apples for weddings or other occassions. Of course we stopped by the petting farm on our way back to the car!

It was getting to be mid afternoon, so we decided to start heading back to Vancouver. A day well spent!
