Kelowna - Osoyoos - Cawston - June 11

(Wednesday 20 June 2007) by Karin
Up early in the morning as the Greyhound bus was leaving at 8:15 and the busstation is pretty far away. Quickly checked my emails as at this time of the day the music isn't blasting yet. Two and a half hour bus ride to Osoyoos. At the Southern end of the Okanagan Valley, small Osoyoos sits at the edge of dark blue Osoyoos lake, surrounded by dry rolling hills. With its hot, dry weather, the Osoyoos region produces Canada's earliest and most varied fruit and vegetable crops. The Osoyoos area receives an average of less than 12 inches rain per year and over 2000 hours of sunshine annually and provdes all the characteristics of a true desert (rocks, sand, cactus, sagebrush, soft rolling hlls). Lauren picked me up and we drove to Cawston. Dropped my stuff in the "wwoofers" bunkhouse, met the other wwoofers and work was waiting for me. Will have to get used to a schedule as here we work from 7:30 till 12:30, lunch en then free time. Usually a sunny and hot place..... today it rained so I decided to catch up on sleep and I took a nap. Still pouring when I got up. Hung around a bit, had some dinner and wrote down the events of the last few days so I will only need to copy when I have internet access again. Not a very eventful day.
