Country Roads

Yesterday’s image celebrated the fun of the fair, and the lights of Paris.

Today, let me take you to a quiet driveway off a country road in Kelowna, BC. A four+ hour drive from Vancouver, this town is part of the Okanagan Valley, which is home to orchards – a number of which have, increasingly in recent years, been giving way to vineyards.

Don’t let the puddles fool you. Kelowna is dry, dry, dry much of the time during summer months, and the small reflecting pools by the gate are remnants of much needed early morning irrigation. I’ve driven by and appreciated this long, private driveway untold times, but it was just the other weekend that I stopped to photograph it for the first time. Lined with parallel rows of birches and the perfect white fence, this is but a peak at a dream driveway for country living.
