Shirley’s Northern Lights Ice Cream
We followed the trail to the public parking which is now looked to be full. This was only a block away from where our coach had dropped us earlier. I liked this Challenger.
The House Rules of one of the shops we passed.
Retracing our steps we walked back to Main Street and stopped at Shirley‘s Northern Lights Ice Cream to try her recommended ice cream.
On offer was a local variety of ice cream flavoured with fireweed. I opted for a more conservative blueberry ice cream.
The Village airstrip
After our ice creams I wanted to see if there were any planes landing on the grass a strip labelled the ‘Village Airstrip’ on our map. Behind us the trains continued to roll past. This one was a a panoramic one from the railway company rather than from the cruise lines.
The main street was now deserted compared to breakfast time.
We passed a small outdoor market outside the Sheldon Arts Hanger. One of the stalls was by a local photographer who had images of the local area and wonderful images of the local wildlife.
The grass airstrip had a handful of planes parked on it. After 15 minutes or so I realised that all the tourist flights were taking off from the other nearby main airfield.
Time for a beer
I had a close look at this truck and it had a cable so that the engine block heater could be plugged in during the Winter.
Back on Main Street we went into the Twister Creek restaurant and Dinali Brewery company.
As we were not wanting a table to eat we sat at the bar and enjoyed a couple of local beers (Kolsch). The local brewery also distilled vodka, gin and all the other spirits that they used for the many cocktails on offer.
