I don't get too fancy with my wine. i like what I like, each palate is unique that way. When in a wine producing region, I'll go local and the 2013 Pinot Blanc from Nk'mip Cellars is my choice for this Osoyoos visit.
We stayed at the Baker St Inn Nelson after making a last minute reservation. VERY last minute, we got the last room in the property, a jacuzzi suite. Here's how it looks.
The best ice cream in Fernie can be found at the Happy Cow. It's easy to get, right on the side of Hwy 3 in town. Everything is hand crafted right on site making this ice cream magical.
A Groupon for Lizard Creek Lodge has been easy to find for most of the summer. I grabbed one for our quick stay and found a pretty, affordable mountain escape close to Calgary
I did a last minute google search for the documents you need to cross border today. I had fingers crossed hoping it would just be a birth certificate and driver's license. Finger crossing doesn't work in the days after 9/11. To cross the border, you now need a passport.
I took the boys for a ride on the Alberta Prairie Railway from Stettler to Big Valley. It reminded me of old train rides with my Grumps, except back in the day, our trains didn't get robbed.
If you ask where the best pies in Calgary are, you'll be pointed to Bonavista for a visit to Pies Plus. 80 varieties, from classic to fancy, will greet you, Agent Cooper style.
