RE: Ladysmith, BC

Hi Marin,

We were there last year.* Ladysmith is going through some big waterfront changes, check out the latest in Waggoner to get a feel for what's happening.*

Not knowing exactly what you are looking for, you should know that it's a different kind of place than Chemainus (which we also enjoy).* It's definitely*worth a trip.

As a kid in the 50's-60's, and later in the 70's,*Ladysmith was memorable because they had a great steam locomotive museum (it's gone now, or maybe just moved) and we pretty much swarmed over the engines.* My other early memory was having to go to the hospital there in the 70's after*putting an oyster knife through my hand over at Tent I.*
