One Neighbourhood on a Scenic Sunday

Scenic Sunday is, for me, a time to share more than one photo. It is a time to give you a flavour of some of the beauty in my country. I've shared several posts already about Kamloops and this is actually where I am spending the Easter long weekend.

So let me share some photos of one neighbourhood in the part of the city known as North Kamloops. There is nothing of note in these photos, no history I want to share. Just photos of a common neighbourhood in an older section of this part of town. I thought it would be especially interesting to my friends abroad to see what some of the older neighbourhoods look like. As you can see, most of our buildings are not made of stone and the buildings are not that old, historically speaking.















I hope you enjoyed the tour. Please visit again soon.

@Lynda, hi there! I'm so glad you enjoyed the tour of my mom's home city. I did have a lovely Easter break and was visiting in Kamloops again with my family. I see from your blog that you had a wonderful Easter too :-)

@ My Castle in Spain, we had a lot of lovely blossoms this year and early too. I am so blessed :-)

@ Betsy, how interesting to know that Kamloops looks a lot like Tennessee. I've never been to Tennessee so I can't tell you from first hand experience how the environment compares but I can tell you that Kamloops also has a lot of hills and mountains. What I've showed in the photo is just a small part of it. Thanks for dropping by!

Your town and mine, land-wise, look similar, but there is a difference I cannot explain. In some photos I think I am looking at my own neighborhood and in others I know I am looking at an area that is not mine. The community looks modern-ish, new. Is it? I should do as you do and take photos of my little city. It is very humble, but I think it would be interesting to share. My city is financially challenged, smiles, and is like a painted old lady trying to hide her flaws and wrinkles of time.

@Katy, it is so interesting how we can see where we live by looking at photos of another land or by visiting there. It happens to me often. I would so love to see photos of your city. Kamloops is a smallish city though it has grown by leaps and bounds over the past 10 years or more. Right now there seems to be a building boom so all the newer buildings are modernish. I think half of the houses in the neighbourhood I showed you would be older and half would be newer whereas there are some neighbourhoods that are all new! Kamloops too has been financially challenged but it seems to be rebounding. I am not sure why but maybe they are gaining a lot of newcomers from big cities like Vancouver as people search for more affordable housing, though Kamloops housing price are fast catching up to the big city prices.
