Part Sunday photo contest, part armchair exploration of this wonderful place we call home
At The Orca, we want to get to know this province even better. So we’re launching a weekly contest – The Orca’s B.C. Moment.
Do you have a B.C. moment? A place, a person, a landscape, a moment – you can define it however you want. The only important distinction is you also want to share with the readers of The Orca.
If you do, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org, with a few details: where and when it was taken, and a sentence or two on why this photo sums up B.C. for you.
If we use your photo, we’ll send you a $25 Visa gift card!
Going forward, we’re going to do this every Sunday – so you’ve got plenty of opportunities.
To get us started, we asked ResidentPOD writer Jordan Bateman for one of his B.C. moments.
My B.C. Moment – Jordan Bateman
Kettle Valley Steam Railway, Summerland – Sept. 8, 2018
To celebrate the end of summer (and the arrival of Canucks star Elias Pettersson!), my son Jack and I traveled to Penticton for the Canucks’ Young Stars Tournament Weekend.
We had an amazing time watching lots of hockey and exploring the south Okanagan. A real highlight came at the Kettle Valley Steam Railway in Summerland, where we got to ride the train along some breathtaking scenery.
It’s a bit cliché – boys and hockey and trains – but it’s a trip with Jack I’ll treasure forever. Thanks to the many volunteers and staff at Kettle Valley who have kept this important part of B.C. history alive.
We’ll never forget it.
