Day 1 – Met in Vernon, took the Needles Ferry toward Nakusp. Epic roads as we enjoyed the twistys with just a bit of rain before Nelson. Great to meet up with some of our Kootenay BCIR members.

Day 2 – Took the Balfour Ferry to Crawford Bay and visited the North Woven Broom where they made all of the brooms for the Harry Potter films. Continued on to Creston and had lunch at the beautiful Skimmerhorn Winery. After lunch we returned to Nelson via the Salmo Creston highway and had to wait for a moose to cross the highway. Dinner was at the scrumptious All Season Cafe.

Day 3 – Coffee to start the day at the Oso Negro Coffee House then some members split off for the return trip home via Rossland. Stopped for lunch in Grand Forks at Board Room Cafe where we were hosted by one of our members to some fabulous food.
Thank you to everyone that made this a wonderful getaway weekend!
