It is lovely... even without mountains. The large body of water in my pictures is Okanagan Lake or Lake Okanagan. I'm not too sure what the official name is. We were on the Penticton side of it, but it goes all the way to Kelowna. We were surprised at how big it was actually.

It IS extremely flat, isn't it? Funny, because my eyes are used to it now (after living in the midwest for 10 years). When I first moved here, I would see billowing clouds in the distance at night, blotting out the stars; my first reaction was always that they were foothills, then realizing that DUH, they were just clouds. Now I don't even wonder: I know they are clouds. Saaaaad.

Sometimes I feel a little mournful over Diego being raised here, as he will identify this as HOME: because it isn't MY home. (Or Blaine's, for that matter.) But Diego's connection will be to THIS landscape and region. It is so strange as things change with the generations, especially if people are moving across the country. It is what it is, I guess.

But yes, still very lovely. That is the good thing about living somewhere else...being able to explore and understand new regions.
