Excellent atmosphere, cheerful and gracious staff, amazing service and BREADSTICKS!!! Salad was delicious, sauce creamy and pasta cooked to perfection! Seated right next to an old style window with quaint curtains, Ivy covering the wall outside, it was truly an experience. Oh and did I mention…breadsticks!!!
As I step into this new year, I feel my effort can be better spent by using InstaGram’s built in features of Stories. Starting today, you’ll start seeing updates of where I’m at and what I’m doing, a quicker way of keeping you in the know, and an easier way for me to keep track of where I’ve been!
Any helpful feedback is greatly appreciated as I embark on this new adventure, one that has encouraged me to get out more and show off my beautiful town, and hopefully, maybe someday, the world!
Not trustworthy, takes pictures of items located on the home next to place that they are selling to make the property look better.

Having been in this town for many years, I’ve watched this mall swallow up the space Wal-Mart Left, putting in a food court, and later a Sport Chek, Timmies, EB Games & Best Buy, and now expanding once again. They really concern themselves with making it into a hub for people to chill, relax, and do some therapy shopping!! There are also seasonal shops which pop up in the middle of the other shops, check them out during the holidays for favorites such as the Log Barn!
It’s always fairly clean for the amount of traffic that goes through. This location also makes an excellent place to have a wind friendly walk in the early hours, (as later hours do get crowded) for those who don’t wish to be stuck to a treadmill.
Excited to see what you guys have in store!
Alrighty! September 2019 Exploration Update with SarahTonin
Special Guest Star – Raven from Teen Titans! (Lucky to snag her before she headed off back to her room!)
HI I’m Raven, I just got back from Random Acts of Costuming, where we cheered up some kids and some people, I put on my best smile, and now without any further ado, here is SarahTonin’s Exploration Update for the Month of September. Teen Titans GO!
Didn’t go many places, but we did make some delicious shish kabobs and had a corn feast, which if you see there, I’ve taken two slices of tomato and slathered them on the corn. (This to be done after normal condiments applied, butter, salt and pepper) That’s how you do it RIGHT!
Saw this spectacular sunrise, peeking out from behind a fire hydrant.
Snapped a few shots of this excellent sunset on the way back from Vernon
Went camping, made some camp food! Yes, Omelets ARE camp food.
And there’s some power lines…
(Further) Construction on St. Paul’s
Corn Chowder! (Recipe to follow!)
And lights on Bernard!
Put out How to Make a Cape with Ruby
Got some AWESOME socks at Hot Topic on Sale!
Sliced up some crab apples to make tea! Figured out a neat way of cutting them, so it doesn’t take you ALL day!
Early morning hours on Bernard; and facing the other direction
Making some Banana Bread!
Whooh – Made some egg whites you could that you could stand up straight, I made a beautiful peach meringue pie… 🙂
There’s our banana bread!
Peach meringue pie!
And these lovely ladies, that were helping with raise a reader downtown by the Capital New Centre.
Kelowna just waking up in the morning!
A peaceful, quiet Bernard Morning-GREEN LIGHT!
And a cute little mushroom glen!
And I thought I’d end it on a funny note. Why can’t you Trust an Artist? Because….They’re Shady! They’re Sketchy! AND they might try to Frame you! Have a great week guys and hopefully I’ll explore way more things this month however as the winter months set in, I tend to bunker down and hibernate…and wait for the cold to go away! So you may see me venture out, once in a while, but expect to see more updates in regards to Tutorials, and other such likes! Stay Tuned!

Friendly homey atmosphere that makes you want to relax and unwind. Have a tea, coffee, or pastry and let a charming barista take your order, then make it for you while you watch! It makes an excellent end of day location, as it’s store front faces towards the sunset, allowing you to bask in it’s glow.
Customer service is excellent, people care.
IPE Fairgrounds, 3010 Wood Avenue – IPE Main Office, 3371 Pleasant Valley Rd, Armstrong, BC V0E 1B0
This used to be the place to go, however large crowds make the end of the day a nightmare, and prices going up for both the ticket and the ride passes make this location just another money grab. Sad to see this event go the way of so many others. May as well save your money and enjoy yourself at the Salmon Arm Fair.
*April 19th 2019*
Regardless of the rude comments of homeless people hanging out in here (Apparently most of these people are kinder then you!) this location is clean, yet somehow they cannot get orders right. My colleagues and I will be removing our business, and will be warning others if this doesn’t improve, as charging people for items they didn’t order, or not giving them something as simple as a bun in their chili means attention to detail is lacking, and makes other areas such as health and safety come into question.
*Update September 19th 2019*
My colleagues decided to give you a few more shots, however the first time you took over 30 minutes to heat up chili, and the second time you told them to take it and warm it up in the microwave. This location is a JOKE.

September 2019- Still clean, however their space is harder to maneuver in and the lineup is not clearly marked so you could be standing in line on the wrong side of the counter and have someone budge you. Staff are still smiling and friendly, however, their inability to put cream cheese on a bagel that costs me twice as much as Timmies and tastes like cardboard, has warped my view of this location. Stars have been set at 2 from 5.
September 2018- Clean, spacious, open feel. Fast and friendly and smiling staff, coffee prices close to Tim’s.
