|Smoke around Williams Lake|
It was really bad in some places and really gave you a headache after awhile. I feel sorry for the firefighters and the people that live in these areas. We've had some smoke from out West but not this bad.......we took the Rock Creek highway from Kelowna to Nelson as I like the Grand Forks area and wanted to see it again, plus we hadn't been to Castlegar or past Grand Forks so it was all new. We stopped at Christina Lake, which I had been too years ago but "man oh man" is it a beautiful lake and Warm!
We stopped in Castlegar briefly to fill up and have a look, not much there that's for sure. But more than Grand Forks retail wise. Then we boogied into Nelson arriving around 1:30pm. Jane and Dustin were waiting for us, and we unloaded the truck and then wandered around Nelson and had some lunch cause Dustin was starving (that's unusual) .....not! Then we booked into our hotel room the Prestige on the Lake. Beautiful place . We wandered around the marina for a while, while they went out the seadoos and we watched them scoot around the lake.

We had a blast going around in circles and the guys trying to dump us, but we held on for dear life and no such luck. But we did get soaked and looked like raccoons when we were finished. All in all it was a gas!
