Listening To The Kaslo Jazz Festival On Kootenay Lake

"Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair."  ~Kahilil Gibran 

Title:  The Kaslo Jazz Festival

The last 2 weeks has been filled with long lazy days of sunshine, snorkeling, boating and idle afternoons lounging at the beach. 

We spent an evening on the water listening to the music at the Kaslo Jazz Festival.  This was our first time and while the music was enjoyable, it was the "people watching" that was the most entertaining.  The highlight of the night was when the sun sank low  behind the mountian's and the evening sky was lit by the lights of the Kaslo Festival. 

Here are a few pictures from that evening.  I wanted to take photo's of the boats and people that were beside us; and at the same time, I chose not to do so as to respect their privacy.  So it might look like there were not many boats in the water, in reality there were were quite a few!

Looks like the hazy, lazy days of summer. What fun. Enjoy yourself. I'm seeing gold among the leaves in the woods behind our house. They do not bring joy to my heart, for I know what will follow.

I do love it here Renate, a very pretty area. I live close enough to this location that we can make day trips here!

Hi Win, it was! I so enjoy this area, both on and off the water!
