Nakusp area

In between our ferry rides, we stayed at Nakusp, a little town right on the Arrow Lakes.

It’s a pretty little town with two hot springs pools nearby.

We wandered through their downtown area, and discovered a lake-side walk, with gardens:018016019023

A perfect place to relax and enjoy the sunshine and the views.  The lake was so calm it was like glass, and I commented it would be nice to take a canoe out there, but Grizz said ‘not a good plan’ as apparently the lake can turn ugly in a very short time.  Not that we have a canoe any more!!

We made a trip out to one of the hot springs and lazed in the warm water for a while:009012

From the pool we could see the steam rising from the hot springs across the roadway:011

On our last evening, we were entertained at Music in the Park.  Steve Palmer was the entertainer, a singer from Edmonton.  He was advertised as singing Country Roots, and he truly did take us back to some of our roots in singing Carter Family, Johnny Cash, Roger Williams, and lots of Canadian artists like Ian Tyson, Celine Dion, Anne Murray, Irish Rovers, as well as a few of his own songs, one titled Come On In which was used for opening of one of the CBC Radio Vinyl Café programs.


Steve will be traveling to the Maritimes this fall with stops in Springhill (Anne Murray’s home town) and Antigonish (our DDIL-K’s home town) in NS , so if any of you are out that way……

All in all a wonderful visit!               Blessings, Peg
