Downtown Kelowna

(My solo road trip of western Canada – Thursday 1st October)

After my detour of Hell`s Gate, I thankfully arrived safe and sound in Kelowna just before sunset.  Kelowna is a city on Okanagan Lake in the Okanagan Valley, in the southern interior of British Columbia, Canada.  It is the largest inland city in British Colombia. I found out that Kelowna derives from an Okanagan language term for “grizzly bear” which I suppose is good to know!

There were some nice sights and sounds of this place, I think I was just to tired to take too much note of it to be honest.  However, I did manage to get around Downtown a little, nice places to eat, some really nice and creative buildings, a nice little beach as the sun was setting, good coffee (I did like the name `Bean Scene`) and I also managed to see a bit of glass blowing, very skilled, there is a short video below too.
