A stop at North Arm Farm on the drive home

October 30, 2017

Stopping by North Arm Farm in Pemberton has been a tradition for near on the whole 25 years of our cabin life.
North Arm Farm began as a very small seasonal fruit and veg stand and has morphed into this lovely destination!

And can you imagine a prettier place for a farm than under Mt. Curry on these sunny Pemberton Valley meadows?

Look at this glorious, huge barn which leads out onto a picnic area.

The farm was busy with people. I think this was the last open weekend for the season and so everyone was out taking advantage of the lovely weather.

I love the giant, metal firepit where everyone was toasting marshmallows and roasting hot dogs.

Concord grapes…my favourite!

Here is the outdoor snack shop, and inside there is a small bakery/lunch counter where I always buy a few butter tarts.

And in the farm produce area, I bought a rainbow of carrots and beets, and, of course, I had to pick out a couple pumpkins to bring home.

I got out of town this weekend guys. I jumped in the car and drove the 200km up to my cabin. It’s really too bad that I haven’t had more time for the cabin this year because I love it so much, but I’m…

A September roundup

Hi again, I’ve just been looking thru my photos of the past week and, oh my word, we’ve done a lot. Also, because we’ve been so busy, I haven’t been keeping up with my posts, so now that we’re into October, I thought it…

Hello from Sunday night and a last for the 1st of October

Hello from Sunday night everyone. Where has our September gone? I just blinked and it’s October. The weather’s been really lovely, so we decided on one last dip in the ocean. Inspired by a lady swimming about, I was the brave one and walked…

Lately round here

Hi everyone, What a difference a day made. And then a week! This is the sun the day after my last post and smoke rolled into Vancouver from the interior, Washington and Oregon wildfires. Yikes! This was the state of the world at 10…

The night of the advection fog

The strange white light in the meadow past the pine trees. Advection fog? The running like a maniac back to the cottage for my camera and the sprint back out again! The trudging thru the nettles and brambles and thru the pines to get…
