It took a couple extra days to get here, but we are enjoying a snowy and lovely Christmastime with family in Nelson BC. When we couldn’t fly as planned to Castlegar on Friday, we chose a different route to Spokane Washington via Seattle for Saturday. As we arrived quite late, my sister (who, with her partner, had driven down to meet us at the airport) booked us into the Hotel Lusso which is right across the street from the historic Davenport Hotel and is one of its family of properties. After we checked in, we popped across the street to view the magnificence of The Davenport, all extra beautiful for the Season. Lusso is also delightful. Our room was clean, bright and spacious. On Sunday morning we had an amazing breakfast at Italia Tratorria, then hit the road for the three hour drive back to Nelson. We look forward to spending more time in Spokane on another trip.

I knowI say this often, but one of the best bennies I've ever had. The Farmer's Breakfast was also amazing!
