Good morning folks. I have just looked at the time on my iPad and it's 01.56am with you so it's morning. Here in Jasper B.C. It's 18.56pm , an it's a lovely day cold evening only 6c but it's that really dry air that also feels light. It reminds me so much of when we lived in the south of Germany up in the mountains. Charlie and I had to laugh we are walking around with our jackets open and everyone else have theirs done up with hats and scarves on too. We got some looks.
Anyway as some of you already know we had rather a long delay at Glasgow, we were meant to fly out at 09.10 on Wednesday but we eventually took off at 17.40. It was a long day and a long flight, we were lucky in the fact that "Canadian Affairs" whom we booked with let the car hire people know that we wouldn't be picking our car up till the next day, and they also booked and paid for a room in a very nice hotel, shuttle bus to take us their the lot. OkCharlie did go and ask what they were going to do seeing how we wouldn't be landing in Calgary till nearly 20.00 hr and no way were we driving the three hours to Edmonton at the time of night, there first answer was book a hotel and claim off your insurance. They were told no way your fault you pay and fair dos they did. We travelled up to Edmonton yesterday meet up with Charlies nephew and had a lovely meal. Then today we set off to drive to Jasper a beautiful run it was too, we did get a shock when we came to a toll at the start of the .national Park and had to pay 16 dollars (£10) OAP rate for the 24hrs we will be here, can you see that happening in Britain in our National Parks??
Anyway this is the view we had coming down towards Jasper.
Stunning mountains and I do wonder how those first people to cross these mountain all these years ago managed on foot over these.
We are off down to Lake Louise tomorrow we were in two minds if to spend two nights here but to be honest it's lovely but it's a tourist rip off , lots of gift shops selling the usual tacky stuff. I hope Lake Louise will be better. We were there nearly thirty years ago and it was beautiful so here's hoping it hasn't been to spoilt.
Any way that's all for now, and thank you for all your comments , sorry if I haven't commented on all your blogs but it's free wifi but not that great, we are lucky here tonight so I will go and see what you all have been up to.
