When I first moved to this area most of the houses looked more like this property.
But, thanks to the strengthening of the Canadian dollar and high energy prices we have been invaded by Albertans and the houses now look more like this .....
It is trully amazing what eight short years have done to this sleepy little valley. N'est pas? Below are a few more lovely properties that can be found along Dickey's shores.
Below is another view of the same property. Everyone has lots of toys. Eight years ago you would seldom see anyone on Dickey but these days people are riding their jet skis and boats speed about with water skiers in tow. It has become quite the playground. This place had something I'd never seen before. It was an inflated ring with chair like seats so people could have a community soak whilst perhaps enjoying a little toddy? (Look at the above photo to see the seats)
My last offering is a back to nature shot of a very lovely willow that grows right along the shore.
It was a great day for a kayak trip and you could not beat the scenery. Dickey does have one drawback, one that would preclude me from ever wanting a property here, It's right on highway 93 and you get to watch and hear traffic all day long. That sort of thing doesn't seem to bother a lot of people but it would drive me nuts. I have to have my serenity. But, as a place to go play, it's way cool!
