This past weekend I visited the local Kelowna Farmer’s Market to see the colours of approaching Fall. I was very excited to see small squash and even a few pumpkins here and there. Honey, Chantrelle mushrooms, apples, eggplant and the final appearance of Peaches & Cherries were what stood out for me. In October I will share another visit to this market to expose the amazing local food options as well; be prepared for macarons, fresh breads & pies, Jamaican & Australian patties, and my most favourite, crepes! Perhaps even a few Turkeys for Thanksgiving in Canada (October 10th, 2011).
With the coming of Fall means that University courses must start back up and so they have. I am in for a busy semester and a hectic second and final semester in January – April. Although I look forward to celebrating the completion of my double major in Creative Writing and Art History.
I cheated a little bit and planned an early escape from school – one week from now I will be on a Norwegian Cruise Ship headed for the inside passage to Alaska. I am excited for the backdrop of Fall colours, a bit of snow and icebergs all nestled into the Pacific Ocean (Gulf of Alaska) and mountains. More on this in the following month.
In the meantime I will be posting as regularly as I can, in between writing for the University and working. Stay tuned to see more of Italy, the Okanagan Valley, and perhaps even a guest post, but most certainly Alaska!
