Trip to Nelson & The Kootenays

We took Mum and Dad away for the middle week of their stay to the Kootenays region of British Columbia. It's a large area but we had rented a house just outside the town of Nelson, approximately 700kms from Vancouver.

The house was a fairly rustic home, but had a big flat grassy garden..........

...the garden became terraced with some garden chairs.....

....and then lead onto this beautiful view of Kootenay Lake. The house had it's own private sandy beach at the end of the garden and easy, safe access for Mojo to swim and us to paddle (it was a bit cold for us to swim !)

Mojo particularly appreciated his own private lake

The lazy days of holiday were ended with some swimming in the lake. David throwing the stick for Mojo

Who obediently runs in to fetch it

And brings it back

Followed by a good shake
