First, there's the Ymir Hotel. I've blogged about this place before, Friday night jam sessions with eight or ten folk playing just about everything that can be played and taking turns singing great old songs: Lightfoot and Dylan and Tom Paxton's Last Thing On My Mind—this time the place was packed. Jugs of beer appeared on tables and food requests were communicated to the server, although by the time it arrived we'd mostly forgotten what we'd ordered. We got to catch up with each other before settling into the weekend routine. There may even have been the occasional bit of dancing. An experience not to be missed when you're in the West Kootenays.

Saturday morning, right after breakfast, we got down to work.

We took turns doing meal prep (ingredients which Anne DeGrace had organized ahead of time)

Lots of mealtime chat around the huge table

Dueling cameras

"Ask me about my book", said Jenny's T-shirt. And we did, and it was good!

Same time next year? Sure hope so!
