We didn’t stop at Sicamous on our first trip through. On our way back though, we stopped for ice-cream that this dairy in Sicamous is (somewhat) famous for.
The fall (Autumn) decorations were out. Fall decorations are a big thing here in Canada. Some people will even have collections in their houses and a lot of people put pumpkins on their doorsteps.
There is also a small farm with birds and calves which you can walk around and a tractor to sit on.
In Vernon, we made a very quick stop in at Davidson Orchards.
Pumpkins are also a really big thing here. I insulted a few people on Facebook by suggesting Canadians buy pumpkins in fall, but nobody eats them. I still stand by this statement! These large carving pumpkins are cheap and everywhere in Autumn. After it was suggested that I was wrong and people do do something else than carve their pumpkins, I decided to cook one. At $2.50 for a giant pumpkin, it is definitely a cheap meal / 10 meals! I made soup and also tried to eat the seeds. The soup was watery and somewhat flavourless (luckily I added Thai curry paste, but it still lacked the depth of flavour) and the seeds were… meh!
There is lots of fun to be had at the Orchard for children. If you’re a foodie, there is a lot of great food inside to be taste-tested and bought as well.
We didn’t have enough time to drop in at the honey place also, but we didn’t have time disappointingly. As I keep saying…. maybe on another trip??!
