Our Trip To Costa Rica

Just wanted to share a few pictures from our trip to Costa Rica this September. It was Costa Rica’s rainy season so we (four families from Fernie) were all prepared for mosquitoes, rain, dengue fever, sting rays, tantrums and sun burns but it ended up being much easier than I expected. We did get bit by mosquitoes but only a little. Only one of us got stung by a sting ray. Hardly any tantrums erupted and only a few noses pealed. The travel was tedious, no doubt, it took over 24 hours to get there and over 30 hours to return, but we did it and survived!

We surfed, played in the cool pool, hunted lizards, admired the massive butterflies, biked  around town, played on the beach, collected shells and ate some delicious food. It was just what I needed.

Holidays Are Upon Us

Tristen Perras' Christmas Eve Dinner(a photo from 5 years ago – memories!)

With the holidays upon us, I am finding myself drifting from the computer. I’ll be back when things slow down around here. I hope you all enjoy your holidays! Don’t forget about night skiing at Fernie Alpine Resort, the ice rink at Fernie Courthouse with nets in place, cross-country skiing in Montane, the best hot chocolate in town at BeanPod, collecting your bottles for the Bright Beginnings Preschool Bottle Drive and late night shopping downtown on 2nd ave!

Be safe out there.

Hearth, A Favorite Holiday Sale

From Hearth’s Facebook page:

Hearth 6: Annual Holiday Sale!

Featuring the finely crafted work of 6 local artists. Leanne Stothert Painting, Michael Hepher of Clawhammer Press, Janet McIntyre jewelry, Katherine Russell blown and fused glass, Holly Kimola of Holly Horses leather and lamps and Sarah Pike Pottery!

Every year we empty out our house of furniture and turn our home into a cozy pop up gallery. We call it Hearth, because we have the woodstove burning, the mulled wine brewing and along with offering up some excellent gift buying opportunities, we hope to evoke that sense of gathering around the fire on a winter evening with friends.

We are so looking forward to this sale and hope to see you there. Dec 2nd and 3rd, 4-8pm both nights!
