Tis’ the Season to shop Local in Langley, BC

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Shopping & Services

It has often been brought to my attention that aside from the things I’m expected to know, there is one more thing I know for sure and that is the art and passion of shopping! I attribute it to my younger years and the cherished times when I could spend one on one time with my Mom. There is no question; it is my favorite pastime today, especially during the winter months when the weather has cooled and the gardens have prepared for its long rest. Throw a special occasion, celebration or Christmas into the equation and you’ll see just how quickly I can map out a shopping route throughout Langley. Shopping has always somehow enabled me to find a new focus and uplift my mood. They say what we can’t solve in real life, we solve it through retail therapy.

After visiting California, Ontario and the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Claude and Inge purchased the land where the present site of the Chaberton Estate Winery and the Bacchus Bistro are located.

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Agritourism, Itineraries, Wine & Food

Winter is a magical season that, although it often doesn’t seem like it, doesn’t actually begin until the winter solstice on December 22nd. Generally, as soon as Halloween is over, and our pumpkins begin to rot, we change gears and plow head-first into the holiday season.

Remembering Flanders Fields

Category: Heritage & Culture

November 11th marks a special day for Canadians all around the world, Remembrance Day. We all wear our poppies and support our active military and veterans on this day. Remembrance became much more significant throughout the years because of one very special trip to Flanders Fields, I took with my parents when I was 16.

Cozy Cafes in Langley, B.C.

Categories: Shopping & Services, Wine & Food

I can’t believe it’s already November! Where did October go? The start of November means two things, Christmas is around the corner and the rainy season is upon us. If you are like me, I love warm drinks and colder/rainier weather calls for that! Nothing is better, than sitting in a cozy café watching the rain come down, with some of your girlfriends or on a date. We are lucky in Langley to have some great cozy café’s for just that. I have put together a list of cafes from all around Langley that will make you want to explore for yourself!

Halloween Events & Traditions

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Agritourism, Heritage & Culture, Wine & Food

Halloween is a time to dress up as your favourite character. Costumes range from a Disney Princess, Superhero to a Minion. It is also a time to get scared out of your skin from the haunted houses you go to or scary movies you watch! As I little girl, I always loved dressing up. For a couple years in a row, I was a black cat. Why two years in a row as a black cat? I just loved being a black cat so why not wear it as many Halloween’s as possible!

Greater Vancouver Zoo

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Heritage & Culture

A whole lot can change in 45 years. As the Greater Vancouver Zoo dusts off after their 45th anniversary celebrations this summer, it’s pretty clear just how true that is. When the zoo first opened in 1970 it was a game farm with lots of animals and small enclosures. Today, the zoo’s philosophy has done a 180 and the focus is on large enclosures for animals that are either captive-bred, rescued or former pets—and their needs come first.
