the good life
Junhong said I had to write about our trip to the Okanagan: On the way to the Caravan, we stopped in Kelowna to say hi to Neil Cadger, where we sat on his porch and ate cheese and drank beer while marvelling at the charm of his clothesline and lilacs in the Okanagan (one doesn't notice lilacs in Vancouver, they get upstaged by the tarty forwardness of magnolias and rhododendrons) . We also ate a very fine lunch, accompanied by a beautiful view, at the Mission Hill Estate. I am particularly fond of the Pinot Blanc.
