Super, Natural British Columbia

After an overnight ferry from Haida Gwaii to Prince Rupert and some sausage mcmuffin fueling our adventure, we set out on the 8 hour drive to Prince George. Highlights of Prince George included doing laundry in a motel and getting phone calls from sketchy characters until Dan unplugged the phone.

The drive down to Kelowna provided some great views passing through Ashcroft and great bannock passing through Merritt.

In Kelowna we set out on a little self-guided wine tour. We tasted plenty of solid wines and cider from Tantalus, Summerhill, The Hatch, Soma, and Nomad.

Highlights were the Gruner Veltliner from Summerhill and every cider from Nomad, where we had fun chatting with the staff about wild fermentation beer, cider, and wine. Unfortunately our $33 growler fill from Nomad exploded in the cooler overnight.

Our time in Vancouver was brief. We stayed with Dan’s friend Graham who proved to be an excellent guide to the city. We wandered Kitsilano, walked around Stanley Park, had a great lunch with Dan’s mom’s cousins, and enjoyed some local beers (look out for Four Winds!).
