Bus Tour 9 – Another evening in Revelstoke

After a long day of checkout problems in the morning, lunch in Lake Louise, and an afternoon pit stop with a pig, we arrived in the evening in Revelstoke. Dinner was back at the WK Garden again. It seemed slightly better than the other morning we had the food. Maybe because it was more suited for evening dining.

We were back in Revelstoke with a good deal of time left in the evening. So were left to our own devices to explore what we could of Revelstoke.

We didn’t have much time after dinner to explore downtown. We were simply waiting for the bus to arrive and pretty soon we had to return to our hotel.

After checking in, there was still sun out and we walked around the hotel area. As we left the hotel, I noticed next door at the Best Western that there was a Tesla charging station with 4 charging units. I just had to go over there and take a closer look. It’s not as if I could afford a Tesla, but I am fascinated by how Tesla is building the infrastructure to support their cars.

We then headed down towards the shores of the Columbia River to see what was around. A paved path runs along the shore and leads people under the bridge and on the other side of the highway. On the other side is a small park with a playground right beside the highway. Plenty of sixteen-wheelers were rolling past that evening.

After wandering for about a half hour, it was starting to get really dark. So we headed back to the Sandman Inn and called it a night. Tomorrow, we’d be heading back to Vancouver via Kamloops.
