My favorite childhood memories are in Osoyoos. I learned to swim in the lake and hotel pools as a kid. Many in my family just love that it reminds of us the Mediterranean countryside with the orchards and vinyards. Having said that it, also fills that space in our heart that yearns for the old country homeland, when we can’t go to Europe every summer.
O Osoyoos, how I miss you and would love to visit with you soon.
This sounds incredible, the perfect fall getaway…wine, lobster, Osoyoos..Pick me!
The lobster on the beach sounds amazing!
Just got back, would love to go again!

Hi Rebecca…honeymooned in big ‘O’ seemingly a million years ago! in latter years took kids there each summer (used to be a little water slide near the camp site)..when I was in Tuscany with cousin two summers ago, he said what does Tuscany remind you of…I replied:”a place in Canada called Osoyoos”…ciao out (LOL)…Cono

Finally posted my photos from Osoyoos celebrates!
Thank you Miss 604 for that fantastic vacation (Sandra is my wife)! 🙂
This was our first time to Osoyoos and we had an absolutely amazing time! The air in Osoyoos is almost surreal… it is a distinct blend of lavender and sage… I shall never forgot it.
Not enough time to do some real quality photography. I need to spend a week in Osoyoos! Many of my photos were shot too quickly and I made a lot of mistakes. Grrr…
I regret not bringing my DSLR to the lobster dinner because there were a lot of great photo ops… not just inside! The sunset was mesmerizing and the stars… wow! I have not seen such dark skies in years!
Thank you so much for that vacation!
