Bed & Breakfast Version:

StarphotoM51_200For the explorer who prefers comfort to camping, we stay in Bed & Breakfasts. Saturday night lodging is at a private observatory in Osoyoos, where the view is out of this world, and the beds are heavenly. Included is an evening program: introduction to photography through their 16 inch telescope. You will be able to take photos like the one at right, which we took in May, 2004. The accommodation also features a gourmet breakfast.
