Travel: Nelson, BC

currently crushing, nelson bc canadaGood morning!  It’s been an amazing week here in Nelson, BC – such a radical change from my life in LA.  I’m packing up this morning and getting ready to head back to the States and jump into the final phase of the home remodel plus some fun blogging events.  Nelson is a beautiful small town with cute shops, super sweet people and a nice, slow-paced lifestyle that I loved getting a glimpse of this week.  I tried nearly every restaurant in town and started each morning at the fantastic Oso Negro coffee house; I’m on my way there now to grab a few of their ‘Mountain Bars’ for the trip home – I’ll definitely be trying to figure out how to make them myself…

In addition to eating and shopping, I did some exploring and loved seeing waterfalls and trees and other pretty things that I miss out on when I’m sitting in traffic on the 405.

    I’ve been here since 83. Rode through on my bike in 1978 and knew I wanted to come back. Had my chance to move here in late 82 and have never regreated doing it. A little bit redneck, a little bit old style hippy, and a whole lot of in between. Top quality powder sking and snowmobiling, unbelievable mountain bike trails, super twisty motorcycle roads, great hot springs. Rich in history and heritage buildings. Guess its not everyone cup of tea, but Im a coffe drinker 😉
