Make sure to check out the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie.
Around the corner, the Centre for Creative Arts offers gallery viewing, (currently on a limited basis, check their website regarding drop-in classes and occasional workshops in drawing, painting and sculpture. Lori has taken some classes in pottery, and very quickly spins a cup.
From there, a little more shopping at Prairie Mall and a visit to the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie, one of the largest free admission galleries in Western Canada, round out the morning. For a healthy and delicious repast in between activities, the ladies grab a bite at Off the Wheaten Path, where the cauli-poppers with buffalo Sauce are so satisfyingly rich you may never want chicken wings again, and it’s easy to eat a tasty meal that is also healthy enough you can justify two desserts (and may well want to).
After a hearty, healthy lunch at Off the Wheaten Path, it’s time for the main attraction: Nordic skiing at Wapiti Nordic Ski Club.
