I went back at least 8 years and collected a few beauty shots from our days in Fernie. This truly is a magical place, in all seasons. Happy Earth Day!

Tanglefoot Vets in Fernie is now open on Saturdays!
Their hours used to be Monday to Friday and now you get an extra Vet day (9am-5pm)! We don’t have a dog but my kids often pretend they’re dogs and cats. For the many who have real pets in this town, this might be helpful.
We’ve been feeling a bit of this since moving into a City of Fernie neighbourhood with actual neighbours and not just being worried about bears watching me change into my flannel pjs.
But to the smallest degree. I mostly enjoy having people around – seeing them walk in front of our house, living their lives, having friends stop by to say “hi”. I feel more part of the community rather than a queen starring at all my little minions.
Leroy is even enjoying our new place with over 10 acres less to roam around (this may all be in my head). I believe this because we interact with him more – take him for walks or bike rides throughout the day, rather than just opening the door and letting him roam as he pleased. He did have a very important job in the old house: protecting us from bears, moose, deer, squirrels, crickets etc. But now he has a even bigger job – to bug us until we take him for a walk.
Anyways. Just letting you know we’re enjoying our new place, being around people and being able to walk everywhere without the thought of climbing a large steep hill on the way home. Life is good.
