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.

Went up to photograph the horses near Chase, BC.  Walked about them in the field - they were all pretty friendly and interested.  The donkeys too.

Peach City Cruise – Penticton, British Columbia

Peach City Cruise – Penticton, British Columbia

Was in Penticton, BC last weekend and was able to enjoy the sun and sand and also get some great shots of the cars.  Penticton has a lot going on every year on that weekend.  There is an 'Elvis' show and the antique car show as well as another bandshell with other bands and entertainment.  Saturday also has a market downtown - something for everyone.  Below you will see some of my pictures.
