Our home

Accommodation and Facilities: Very liveable spacious rooms. Large kitchen with spacious eating area. There is a spacious living room and formal dining room and the unit has a large private patio area with flower beds and a grassy area too. There is a large two car garage and is semi attached to the house by a small covered 8 foot "breeze-way". The unit is attractive Med. with tile roof and inner courtyard entry. This is an end unit with only one neighbor close-by. On the other three sides is a park and a ravine with a picturesque all season creek and another unit across the street (very quiet area). There is public transport one block away and downtown is only about 12 blocks. This unit is in a gated community with automatic remote entry. The unit is eight years old in a well maintained small complex of 22 units. There is a small heated swimming pool and recreation center and enclosed pool area in the complex very close to my unit. Heating and air conditioning is automatic thermostatically controlled.

Who we are

  1. I am a widowed retired school principal. I have a master's degree and have taught college and University. I now travel widely in North America in my motorhome and I have a winter place in a large gated community in Palm Desert Calif.(this also could be made available as a substitute or additional to Kamloops home). I am a geographer and enjoy visiting varied venues. Have been to Europe three times, and Mexico too, but not to Australia and New Zealand (which I would like to do). I flew a plane for more than 20 years but have since given that up to see things in depth from the ground. Quite often I travel with another couple or with a senior companion. I love to fish and fish the local lakes here as well as doing deep sea fishing in the Pacific Ocean north of Vancouver B.C. My hobby is photography and take lots of pictures.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Kamloops is about halfway between Vancouver B.C. and Calgary Alberta. It is a community of l00,000 people--large enough to have an Art Gallery, large public library, a wildlike park (Zoo), a symphony orchestra, live amateur and professional theatre, shopping areas, a college and University. Getting around can be done with public transport but a car is a distinct advantage to use in the area. Sun Peaks resort is close-by and is a world class ski resort in the winter/ but in the summer is active with Music in the Mountain festivals, Mountain Bike events and competitions, tours of slopes and wild flowers. The village is very European in style and flavor and has many quaint and full of character small lodges, hotels and apartments and restaurants. There is a community swimming pool and an l8 hole golf course as well as nightlife and evening entertainment. It is a mini whistler developed and run by the same people. Whistler is a four hour drive and is very similar but larger (near Vancouver, B.C.) Kamloops has parks within the city and hosts many tournements and sports events within the city. Baseball, hockey, swimming, dog shows, local artists in the park events are some of the things that are present. There are lots of things to do in the city and surrounding area without too many people and congestive traffic. The Okanagan Valley --wine growing area/resort area is only an hour and a half away. Wells Gray Park--wilderness area one hour.
