Picnic by the Bow River
Sidsel & Gloria (friends from my Calgary days) and Ron getting to know each other.
We're into the last few days with Mini, Russell & Timothy. We are looking forward to the trip out East but this will not be an easy parting. We've been so very well cared for here it would be easy to stay.
Yesterday Ron and I did the C train thing again and checked out The Bay (Hudson's) downtown. Had a fish & chips lunch then met up with Timothy at the Glenbow Museum. Wow! what an amazingly well laid out exciting display of Canada's history. The story of the originals, the settlers, the empire builders, the immigrants, art and fabulousness of this country - we stayed till closing time when we were courteously invited to leave.
Of course we have had some great games times here and look forward to a few more before we leave. We have a couple of new ones we'd like to introduce when we get home.
Sunshine again this morning. We had a little thunder storm yesterday but it didn't last long.
I've begun to think about New Zealand a bit more lately so I guess that means I'm still attached heart-wise to the homeland. I even look up the Taranaki Daily News site from
Stephen Avenue Mall with bubbles
This is the down town mall area where there's music (Mini & Russell's band played here a few weeks ago) & craft tents and lots of colour and action. There's Ron in the middle of it all.
time to time. The snow looks like lots of fun. We wonder about what you are all doing so drop in a comment from time to time if you can. We love that.
Hope you enjoy the pics.
Our love to you all,
Ron/Dad/Grandad & Pat/Mum/Granny
