Camping at the beautiful Mabel Lake Provincial Park came at a price last week: I had to function without the Internet for the first time in several years.
I tried to resist this from happening. I went to Telus Mobility a couple days prior to leaving for my trip to buy more data with a plan to hotspot from my phone to my laptop once there. Unfortunately since the campground was located so far off the grid and had no cellular service, there would be no way of getting a Wi-Fi connection.
A week without it might not have bothered me if I didn’t have my “Stolen and Missing Dogs of the Okanagan” Facebook page that I update throughout each day. Luckily my friend Gina, who manages the “Okanagan Lost and Found Pets” on Facebook said she’d take care of my page while I was gone, which solved my problem.No comments
Okanagan Feast of Fields 2015
We came - we ate - we drank!
Not so long ago, in a land not so far away, chef Michael Standlandter partnered with Jamie Kennedy to create an event that got urbanites out to Ontario farms. In 1995, with permission to use the Feast of Fields name in BC, FarmFolkCityFolk organized Feast of Fields as annual fundraisers to highlight the connections between farmers and chefs and to increase the connections between farm folks and city folks.
What can I say except that it was a bloody brilliant idea!
I am currently reminiscing about all the tastes and smells and smiles from my fifth Feast of Fields event (their seventh okanagan event), held August 16, 2015 at Meadow Vista Honey Wines in Kelowna.
