Pemberton Valley, BC

Pemberton Valley, BC
is one of those places that
you keep finding yourself drawn back to.
She is situated in a valley of
spectacular agricultural land,
and has only been accessible by car
since 1975.
People here are real life friendly, time seems
to stand still as the bees lazily buzz
around you in the heat.
The smell of life is everywhere.

Local fare abounds, including popular
The Pony, which has been famous amongst
backpackers and outdoors enthusiasts
for years for their larger than life cookies. What's
not to like about cookies.

The summertime here offers some pretty spectacular
hiking, horseback riding, golfing,
and just about anything else you can dream up.
I like strolling around feeling the place, living
it in through the sights and sounds
she chooses to share with me as the hours pass,
and life slows to a pace that is gentle and nostalgically sweet.
The smell of fresh mown hay is intoxicating.
