Jim @ Burrowing Owl. This setting is overlooking the new pool and 10 room luxury Hotel at Burrowing Owl. It is such a beautiful location. In a couple of weeks they will be picking the grapes for the fall crush season.

********************
We left at about 10:00 this morning with 3 dogs as we are dog sitting Maddy while Andrea has a weekend off.
We headed south to walk the dogs at Peachland, and then on to a coffee and sweet
@ Bliss Bakery. Always such a treat.
As we headed south towards Summerland, & Penticton, we were happy to note that on this long Labour Day weekend, no blasting or hold ups on the road, so it was smooth drving to
"See Ya Later Ranch Winery"
over the back road to Oliver, down to Osoyoos where we went to
NK " MIP Cellars
and checked out "Spirit Ridge Resort and Spa.
Then on Twisted Tree Winery where we sampled some Chardonnay and Merlot.
Ran into to Judith( whom I had worked with at Mission Hill) and her husband Andrew, celebrating their 22 Anniversary....Congrats!!
Back towards Oliver and taking the back road to Burrowing Owl Winery...
A good day, as it was sunny but quite cool, perfect for the pets.
Another excellant adventure ending the month of August in style.
