Slocan Lake on the Boat, Japanese Internment and Dinner in Nelson
Lara and Dilly took us on the grand tour yesterday. First drove us to where he has his boat moored in Silverton which is about half way up the lake. Just before we descended into town, he stopped so we could get some great photos from a height. Cruised the lake for about an hour and a half. Depth thingamajig showed the deepest we went over to be almost 500 feet. Slocum Lake is one deep lake!
While Dilly was securing the boat Lara, Yvonne and I wandered over to the Japanese Memorial Internment Centre where we got a bit of an education as to man’s inhumanity to man. Silverton was one of the main Japanese Interment Camps during World War Two. Beautiful tribute to a sordid history.
Then we headed a few miles west to Kaslo and wandered about the classic car show downtown. Finished the day in Nelson with some craft beer and dinner on the patio on the main street. Watching people enjoying the 22C weather.
Dilly has lived in the area forever and knows everybody. We hardly stopped anywhere for more than a minute when he wasn’t in conversation with someone.
