More Holiday Time....Sept 8 to 9

Tuesday, Sept 8th: Found us up and out of the house early and heading to the Kootenay's and our daughter Teagan & son-in-law Shawn's new stomping grounds. This is a spectacular drive along Hwy 3, one of the best drives in all of BC.

The highway winds and dips just enough to keep you on your toes, without it being problematic - at least we like it! Most people have heard about all the terrible fires that roared through our province (and many other areas) this summer. Rock Creek was the only spot we could get a picture, but that was enough.

Right at the edge of the road.....

Well said......

 
 We will usually stop at the Grand Forks Visitor Information Centre
for a lunch break.....

 
Not much traffic on the road as it was the first day of school and most
of the holiday people are at home.....

Somewhere on route.....
 
It takes about 8 hours to get to the Nelson area but we never rush! Teagan and Shawn have a great spot about 40 minutes out of Nelson. They really enjoy the rural feel of their neighbourhood, plus they have a great view of Kootenay Lake....
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
   
  
....and that would be their VW Vanagon!
 
Nelson has a beautiful farmer's market on Wednesday's. They close off a block of the main street for all the local vendors....
 
 
 
 
Every stand had fresh garlic - apparently 'tis the season!!

 
  
 
Shawn & Teagan own the Timber Tattoo shop in Nelson. They are enjoying great success in this small town and surrounding area. Way to go, you guys!! So, also on Wednesday, the 9th, we had to visit the shop..... 
 
 
Someone wants more colour!!!

The artist (a.k.a. Shawn) gets started.
 
 
Beautiful little shop....
 
 
 
  
Lots of "flash" on the wall to choose from....and this is just a sampling!
 
 
A beautiful eagle for Doug.....
 
 
 ....and this is how we protect it for the next 24 hours.
 
See you tomorrow!!
 
Peace....
