Day 202 - Kelowna

Distance travelled (by bike): 28,480

Been in the Okanagan we decided it would be rude not to visit some of the local vineyards (or wineries as they call then in the US). We started at Mission Hill, which is one of the best known vineyards in Canada, the complex is designed to enhance the surroundings and experience for us tourists. After a couple of tours and tasting a lot of wines from some of the best vineyards in the area we'd like to think we learnt a bit about wine. Phoebe got to taste ice wine for the first time which she was quite excited about, though not  convinced when she eventually got to taste it.
Pulling ourselves away from the vineyards before we got carried away it was time to explore Kelowna and look for the elusive lake monster. We never saw the actual monster, but got to cuddle up with a sculpture as a consolation prize. With the sun shining, patios and roof terraces thriving it was a  great day off the bike.
