Okanagan Spring Wine Festival - Sunday

Sunday morning was absolutely amazing out. I had only planned on running on Saturday so I just enjoyed hanging out in the morning. Check out the view from the balcony..!

We took off to Peachland to have lunch at Gasthaus on the Lake. This is a great German restaurant and pub that makes a mean schnitzel. They also have a gorgeous patio. It is worth checking out if you are in the Okanagan! From there it was on to more wine tasting. We hit up See Ya Later Ranch where they have a fantastic Brut and a Riesling. From there it was on to Inniskillin...where I got carded! Haha! She looked at my ID and just said, "Wow..."CIMG5426There are a ton of marmots along the road to Inniskillin. They normally run away whenever a car approaches, but I actually managed to get a few half decent shots.CIMG5440From there it was on to our final stop to taste - Road 13. I hadn't actually tried any of Road 13's wines before, but it was a fantastic surprise - they had some really tasty stuff! In addition, they also had the cutest pair of weiner dogs - Meg (for Nutmeg) and Fil (for Filbert). They were absolutely adorable. Here's Fil:CIMG5444Dinner was an amazing evening at Quails Gate Winery. It was a fantastic end to the trip! I wasn't flying out until early Monday morning though... Finlay did not look too impressed at being woken up at 4:30 am...
