Summerland

Yesterday we visited Summerland for some last minute 2011 shopping.
Here are a few images from this strangely named town up in the hills, where " The Spirit of Summer Never Ends". Its name was inspired by some lines from an old Spiritual hymn " There no cloud shall dim the sky, in that happy home on high, in that heavenly Summer Land "
"The Happy Home on High?"

"Better than Boxing Day Sale"

Mural on the Anglican Church

Tree Root in the Park
It was first settled in 1887 by a family from Ontario who brought some apple tree saplings, named in 1902, and incorporated in 1906. More history here if needed.
This is the last post for 2011.
A Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous New Year to you all from Hanne and Michael!

You share such wonderful photos. I really like the view of the town of Summerland. I will have to google that to find out where it is. Happy New Year to the both of you.

I like the painting on the church and find it very funny that the shops give 50% discount on Christmas articles.

Greetings,
