Kettle Valley Steam Railway Summerland BC - Raymond MAASKE - 05/30/11 02:45 PM
The Kettle Valley Steam Railway showcases a unique part of the Okanagan's and British Columbia's history. Built during 1910- 1915, the KVR "Kootenay to Coast Connection" powered our pioneer fruit industry into world markets, transported our families on vacations and errands; created employment, hobos and stories that will be with us forever.
We invite you to join us on the only preserved section of this historic railway: Ten miles of beautiful vistas; from lush orchards and vineyards to a spectacular view of lake and land from the Trout Creek Bridge 238 ft above the canyon floor. The sight and sound (0 comments)

Spring Cleaning, organizing and storing tips - Home Star Realty - Raymond MAASKE - 05/19/11 01:42 PM
Space Saving Tip It's spring time and the flowers are blooming! Are you having trouble making a beautiful garden with your small yard? Turn a wood pallet into a verticle garden to liven up a small outdoor space. Full-scale vertical gardens have a tendency to be expensive, but you can make a patio-sized version for nearly nothing if you use a plain, everyday wood pallet. Find out how by clicking here.
Storage as a Place to Start your Business Some of the greatest companies of all time started in storage (garage). Many customers use storage lockers as a place (2 comments)
Summerland BC Roads – Circa 1911 ?? - 05/19/11 01:35 PM
I travel in Summerland by car, bicycle and foot and have noticed that our roads are getting worse and worse. I love living in Summerland for all of its spectacular views and vista but have to ‘look down' more than I like (taking my eye off the views) to miss the next pothole or broken pavement.
Summerland BC Summerland BC also has a splash park at Peach Orchard Beach in lower Summerland. We like this park because it is adjacent to the beach, parking is easy and convenient, and there's a huge grassy area, swimming area and washrooms right there as well. To get there follow Okanagan Highway 97 to Summerland. Turn east onto Peach Orchard Road and follow all the way down to Lakeshore Drive, then drive south. You won't miss it. (0 comments)

There's been a startling drop in real estate sales in the North Okanagan. New statistics show a 26 percent decline in April sales, compared to March, and a whopping 54 percent drop compared to the same time last year. In money terms, April sales totalled 30-million dollars, less than half what was sold in April 2010. The Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board blames tighter credit conditions. New listings are also down.
