Summerlandia

First, Summerland is my home. Then we represented it as a silly and endearing hashtag #summerlandia, then it was further embellished with Summerlandia Fall Harvest 2015, a get-together with Summerland friends and ingredients celebrating all that's Summerlandia.

Now it's an official blog on TheFieldGuide.ca. Follow our random adventures in our hometown, where we take the 100 mile diet and lifestyle down to about 15. 

For this first introductory post, we are sharing some Summerland love in photos. These photos and many others are available for viewing on the screens down at our favourite restaurant in the hidden jewel of the Okanagan, lower town Summerland, Local Lounge + Grille.
