My primary love is watercolour landscapes, inspired by the Impressionists, but my work is full of variety and constantly changing. Lately I've been etching hand-made prints, and exploring the combination of watercolour and ink I carry a range of functional art including calendars, cards, magnets, journal and sketchbooks, as well as original works, framed or unframed. You are very welcome to visit my studio -- but call first to avoid disappointment! I enjoy a varied life with lots of travel -- winter here finds me in my other country, Australia, where it conveniently happens to be summertime!
At DeLong Studio we specialize in hand-crafted sterling silver jewelry and semi-precious stones.
Lapidary work is performed in house utilizing rare and unusual stones. We also showcase the work of international silversmiths producing limited and exclusive designs.
I am Karon Barkhuizen, a professional chef/pastry chef and chocolatier. I trained in Europe and have spent more than 30 years in the industry, working around the world.
I have met some interesting people on my travels and cooked for many ‘stars’ on movie sets and retreats. Pierce Brosnan and Martha Stewart to name just a few… Check out the website for some old pictures with them!
I now reside in the South Okanagan with my husband and spend my days in my wonderful kitchen studio, creating and baking up a storm and when I am not in the kitchen I can be found at my friend’s art studio where I have a student space and create art… different medium but all about colour and vision! www.bakingforthestars.com

The Summerland Waterfront Resort Beyond Wrapture Day Spa has a New York themed ambience with two "Martini Manicure Bar" stations, four "Central Park" pedicure stations, and two couple’s treatment rooms; "Broadway" and the "Hamptons". Women enjoy their facials in the luxurious spa treatment room aptly named "Manhattan", while Men’s facials are performed in "Brooklyn Bridge".
Beyond Wrapture is one of the first spas in Canada to offer these Vinotherapy Services. Research shows that grape seeds, stems & skins, used in Beyond Wrapture Vinotherapy services, contain antioxidants called polyphenols, which are 10,000 times stronger and 50 times more healing than Vitamin E. Grapeseed oil, used in Beyond Wrapture’s Vinotherapy Massage, is high in ologonomeric promanthoscyanidins (PCOs), another powerful antioxidant which can greatly reduce the damage created by free radicals, strengthen and repair connective tissue and promote healthy, glowing skin at the cellular level. www.beyondwrapture.com
The course at Summerland Golf & Country Club is located on Paradise Flats, and offers quite a contrast in lay out to the golfer. The first hole provides the golfer with a wonderful start with the tee perched some 75 feet about the fairway and offering a great view of the Okanagan Valley in the distance. The front nine is characterized by generous fairways, relatively flat terrain, and a combination of links style as well as tree lined holes. The front nine features four significant par 4's that are all in the 400 yard plus range.
The back nine moves into a wonderful grove of Ponderosa Pines, and features rolling fairways, elevation changes and undulating greens. No less than five holes skirt the massive Trout Creek Canyon. The 18th Hole is a great risk reward par five. At just over 500 yards, depending on the tee you play, a good drive will give you the chance to reach the green in two. However you will need to flirt with the corner of Trout Creek Canyon to do so! Accuracy and good putting is required to score well on the back nine. www.summerlandgolf.com
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 Trestle Bridge 238 ft above the canyon floor. The sight and sound of our restored 1912 Steam Locomotive the “3716” will bring the era alive as you ride along on this 90 minute journey in a vintage passenger coach or open air car. An observation game for kids, anecdotes and lively musical entertainment make every run a memorable experience for the whole family. Make your reservation by calling us toll free 1-877-494-8424. We look forward to seeing you this season! www.kettlevalleyrail.org
