We love it here…

“Come the warm days of spring, summer, or fall, I just enjoy hopping on my bike, riding to work, and arriving there invigorated to start the work day. On my way home – what should I do? Shall I go by the boathouse and put the kayak in the lake for a short paddle or ride along Baker Street to stock up on local delights or organic produce? Oh yeah, it's Friday afternoon, I could stop into the local wine store and taste a little red or white wine before deciding on a bottle. Then home to get ready for dinner out at one of the many fine dining establishments before heading to an art show, music event, or theatre production. And in winter, with its crisp cold snowy days that blanket the ground in white, I can head to the slopes to ski, snowshoe, or go to the recreation centre for a workout. Maybe I should stay home warm in front of a fire watching the snow fall on the cedars. So much to do. So many wonders that speak to my heart ... I love living here!” – Anne Marie Doig, RN, Kootenay Lake Hospital
