Visiting Creston, British Columbia, Canada

My daughter Melinda and son-in-law Wayne recently moved from Quesnel in the Cariboo region of British Columbia to Creston in the Kootenays. So as soon as they were reasonably settled I paid them a visit. This small town of about 5,000 people is in a valley surrounded by magnificent mountain ranges. It is only a few miles from Idaho on the border with the USA and has a temperate climate. Melinda and Wayne's very comfortable new home is a ten minute walk from the downtown.

We drove to the neighbouring town of Bonners Ferry in Idaho for lunch.....about 50 kilometres/ 30 miles....on Monday. The mountains and clear blue sky were spectacular as were the blue and black hamburgers with blue cheese.

And here is the elementary school across the street from Melinda and Wayne's. When the weather is clear you can also see the mountains and river.

I decided to add a few more highway shots from my visit and a summer picture of Melinda and Wayne's home.
