Kamloops at 200: City ‘grows’ on gardener

We came to Kamloops in May 1972 to change careers and to escape the Saskatchewan winters.

It took me about two years to get over the feeling that we were on vacation and would be returning to Saskatchewan.

What I love about Kamloops is the terrain and hills — every day, they are different. When it rains, the clouds race along in the valley, down low enough so you could run up the hill and touch them.

I love the four seasons, when it doesn’t rain forever and when winter is enjoyed, not endured.

For a gardener, there is the ability to grow many different fruits and veggies.

And, yes, I even like the wind.

There is such a permanence and comfort from the hills.

Kamloops is truly a haven and I wouldn’t leave it for any other place.
