Sparkling Hill

South of Vernon in the beautiful Okanagan Valley a two-hour drive from the Arrow Lakes is a world-class health spa. There I took my wife at the end of November as a belated birthday gift. You can google the place and get acquainted with the amazing facilities provided for people looking for a peaceful and soothing place to feel well again. What impressed me, even more, was the magnificent scenery surrounding the building high on a hill. The last clip on the video shows a panoramic shot from our room window. Enjoy.

    The place is so scenic. The island in the lake adds to the charms of the place.

    Altogether the Arrow Lakes seem to have what nature intended us, and the spa is a mere bonus.
