The Fernie Connections : I’m so glad I found out about The Fernie Connections Foundation yesterday. Thanks, Janelle!
Their mission: To provide affordable opportunities for children of all ages to connect to themselves, each other and the natural world.
This non-profit organization is fairly new, with a staff of two, and due to half of the staff being pregnant right now the number of programs are temporarily limited but I can see how the area could benefit with a wonderful group such as this to get the kids outdoors and enjoying themselves. I’m very interested to see how it grows and, hopefully, get my own kids involved.
Secret Businesses aren’t very secret, they’re just new to me and I’m passing on the information like a good blogger.
I spent less than 24 hours in Invermere this Monday/Tuesday but it felt like I did enough to fill a week. The trip was for Mandi and her surprise bachelorette/birthday canoe convoy down the river. It was just short of 5 hours on The Columbia River – from Pete’s Marina in Invermere to Radium.
These friends of Mandi were quite entertaining, which resulted in a shortage of dull moments. Canoes were smashing into the shore, naked bodies exposed, heavy currents swept people away, there were almost tips, double beavers, fire poi spinning, backwards canoeing and a swarm of mosquitoes to finish things off right. I am honored to have been a part of this evening.
Took off for the weekend to go camping at Koocanusa with some friends and a few dogs…as always. This particular trip felt a little different because the weather was all over the place – sunny and hot in the morning and thunderstorms and rain in the late afternoon, plus, we took off for a few hours to check out the Baynes Lake Market for the first time. The BLM was a happening little spot in the middle of nowhere (so it seemed) but people were there – vendors and shoppers. Our mission was to find replacement flip flops (as I broke mine Friday night) and cotton candy. We ended up finding buck fifty flip flops (used but still awesome,) cotton candy, peach jam, a little scrubby for our camping dishes and some peanut butter cookies (that was later eaten by mice). Score! But if needed we could have also bought tupperware, wooden tables, epicure (weird), $1 junk, loaf bread, commit gear, pottery, loads of hand-made crafts, organic dog treats, unique camping tools, a boat trip, dresses, bags, pie, paintings, jewelry, a massage, dipped donuts…my brain hurts from thinking so hard…and tons more.
