We woke up this morning to sunshine once again..
..a swing on the deck with our tea and coffee this morning..and then a lovely breakfast of bacon,eggs, hash browns and toast..
We had made plans today to head to Crawford Bay..
arriving early enough at the ferry dock, there was time for a few photos and a swim for Tucker..
yet another lake added to his ever growing list..
To get to Crawford Bay you have to take the Longest Free Ferry Ride in the world, a 40-minute scenic crossing of Kootenay Lake, from nearby Kootenay Bay to Balfour on the lake's west arm.
..the breeze on the lake was very welcoming as the temperature was nearing 30 degrees celcius..
..and a lovely photo of our hosts..Brenda and Ken..
..after the forty minute ferry ride..we drove the three miles to Crawford Bay..home a few Artisan Shops..
our first stop was the Northwoven Broom shop..they are famous for making the brooms for Bewitched and Harry Potter..
..Ken checking out the ‘bats in the belfry’..
..next stop was the Barefoot Handweaving..the shop is in a building made of straw..
..right next door is a glass blowing shop..
and then Brenda’s favourite shop..Kootenay Forge..
..even Bart liked this one..
one more sign photo..this one was jeep related..see if you are paying attention..
..another ferry ride back..
so basically our day consisted of
- ferry ride
- more drinking
- and more eating..
tomorrow will be a repeat of most activities..with a trip to Baker Street just for fun..
stay tuned and thanks for riding along with us..
