Last night’s dinner at Ali Nakkour’s fabulous Sully’s Restaurant in Loomis was over-shadowed, literally, by the smoke from the Newby Lake fire that appears to have been reborn. Wild fires have a horrific side, but nature has a way of presenting a beautiful side to things. These photos were taken on the road from Loomis to Nighthawk. We also caught a group of goats right across the road from Sully’s having an evening meal. These fires remind us of the great risk our fire fighters take and everywhere in the North Okanogan there are signs posted by families and businesses giving heart-felt thanks for the work they do. I have to add a plug for Ali Nakkour and his family – they have the best menu you’re going to find in the North Okanogan, and there are fire fighters all over the area that will attest to that and the personable hospitality you find there. And they’re now featuring your favorite Esther Bricques wines! Let them know you appreciate their support for the most beautiful community you’ve never heard of.
