Kaslo

 Historic Main Street..in the Village of  Kaslo British Columbia.

 
 Home of the S.S. Moyie

 Situated on the Kootenay Lake...
Being in the mountains... it's amazing how many streams we found flowing into the lakes!

Has a Marina..

Hiking and biking trails....


The Kaslo River runs into the lake...
The river is high and rushing with the spring melt...but I'm sure the confluence would be a great fishing spot!
A beautiful gem tucked away in the Kootenay Rockies.

..... if you look close... 
you can see that you can really get tucked away by yourself if that is what you desire!!

Kootenay Lake Ferry

It is one of the longest Free Ferry's...
 Around 35 minutes long...
 It was a beautiful ride...

Who hasn't dreamed of a home by the lake....
If only the area, wasn't so secluded.....

Home Made Brooms!

Handcrafted Corn Brooms, made in the Kootenays...

Brooms made from 100% raw, unprocessed broom corn.
They should last many times longer than an 'ordinary" broom!!

The shop is located along Hwy 3A in the hamlet of Crawford Bay, B.C.
It is a family run cottage industry. Rob has been making brooms for 20 years!

His brooms have been used in plays, operas and TV shows over the years... for more information on his famous brooms..click here!

Well I got my broom...as those who know me well...know I love the sweep...so we'll see if this broom lasts longer than most of my brooms!:)

To Do List...

Making Laundry Soap was on my 'To Do' list...
 This was the first time I used a bar of pink soap...... and I tried a new recipe...
I filled the last one quarter of the bucket with Tide....
I enjoy making laundry soap... it's easy, it works well...and saves me 'buckets' of money!!

Have you ever tried to make it?
