Driving to Kaslo, I found a quiet spot by the old hotel (our next meeting place) and started a painting of the bay. The group rolled in so I packed up and joined them for a delicious cold beverage.

After another fun evening meal we said our goodbyes. The cyclists continued onwards the next morning and Gord and I toured around Kaslo. I went back to finish my painting and he biked all around the town. We bought a picnic supper and headed to Trout Lake stopping along the way to hike Fletcher Falls and to take photos. We stayed in the lovely Windsor Hotel (built in 1894). As we were the only guests for the evening (prior booking only due to Covid) we had a lovely evening with the owners Lisa and Brian. The next morning we went for a walk along the lake's shoreline before slowly enjoying our delicious breakfast. We took the ferry back to Revelstoke then drove back to Sicamous. What a wonderful getaway!
I only managed 2 water colour sketches on this trip. This first is of a memorial garden right beside where I painted and the second is a view from our Woodbury Resort hotel room.
