Where we want to go
Description of our house
Our home sits on the hill just across a country road from the lake. It is quite large and spacious with lots of windows and lots of light, with views from most of the rooms. The house has four bedrooms, with one that is set up as an office and we have high speed wireless service throughout the house. There are three decks and a nice size fenced backyard on the lake side of the house. We look down the lake and see one small corner of the lovely city of Nelson. There is nothing like sitting in the hot tub on a clear cold night and watching the intense star-filled Kootenay skies.

= marks the location of this home
Nelson is a small city of 10,000 people nestled in the Selkirk Mountain Range in an area known as the West Kootenays. Nelson is a very interesting and eclectic community with a counter culture vibe and an active arts community. It has more heritage buildings than any comparably sized community in all of Canada and the main street is a treat to wander and explore. For more information and pictures we would recommend any of the following sites: http://www.discovernelson.com , http://www.ilovenelson.com , and http://www.nelsonbccanada.com . If skiing is your interest check out http://www.skiwhitewater.com. Whitewater has been named one of the "hidden gems" by Powder Magazine.
Something about ourselves
We are Don and Jeanette, recently retired and looking forward to the next stage of our lives. Jeanette worked with the federal government in community development programs and Don the better part of his career with International Development organizations working in the developing world. We both have travelled extensively and feel the next few years are prime time to add significantly to our list of countries and places.
