Christmas Craft Show on the S.S. Sicamous

Today we drove to Penticton so that we could check out the S.S. Sicamous, a paddle-wheeler boat that will celebrating its 100th birthday next year.  The boat is permanently docked on the beach front in Penticton and there are many different events held inside during the year.
Right now there is a Christmas Craft Sale going on and we both jumped at the chance to explore the ship as neither of us has been inside before.
 The many exhibits and informative plaques were the highlight, the craft booths, while interesting, took a back seat as we explored the old vessel.
 It felt like we traveled back in time
 These are the first pictures I have posted that were taken with my new cell phone, I'm happy with how they turned out, sometimes I just don't feel like lugging my DSLR everywhere.

 The boat has been restored beautifully, we were definately glad we made the trek!
 We also bought some delicious homemade apple cider at the craft sale that made the trip even more worth while.
