Day 2 at the Sun Peaks Christmas Market

Our second day here at Sun Peaks started with a hearty breakfast and then a nice leisure morning stroll through the village before we opened up for the Christmas market.

This is Justine who was one of the vendors that shared our space with us at the Nancy Greene's Cahilty Lodge.

She is a grade 9 student and has been raising money for a trip of a lifetime to Antarctica!  This will be such an adventure and we are so excited for her!  You can read more about it on the site Students On Ice Antarctic Expedition 2011.  Justine also has a blog that you can read here.

Debbie was the other vendor set up in our hotel.  She makes really fun reindeer and other ornaments using a chain and skill saw.

We had more Christmas Carolers come by to entertain us and this group was really great!

The highlight for the whole weekend, however, was meeting one of my childhood heroes, Nancy Greene (Raine)  When I was growing up I remember her from the winter olympics when she won a gold and silver medal in downhill skiing for Canada.  I have always followed her life and career from afar and currently she is one of the Senators for our province.  We are staying in the ski lodge bearing her name.

We are off in the morning to Kamloops for an afternoon at Heather's Fabric Shelf where they are having a Sip & Shop Tea Party.
