My husband, Greg and I have been experiencing the beauty and grander of our incredibly stunning and diverse country. Following are a few photos and sketches that tell the story of our visit to British Columbia and Alberta with my daughter and her family …The Wetlands at the foot of the Rockies, Golden British Columbia Stephanie serves colourful, tasteful, healthy meals
Yum!Canadian Timberframes Ltd, my son-in-law’s company and where two of my grandsons worked this summer. CTL builds stunning Douglas Fir timber frame homes and resorts, throughout North America. And the healthy, wowsey meals continue. (I need to do this & break a lifetime of bad eating habits) A rare afternoon indoors with the boys. Usually we are out & about. Incredible day to the top of the mountain on gondolas from Kicking Horse Pass, Golden B.C. The boys mountain-biked down 4 times. Steph and I hiked a bit along the narrow mountain-top trail, Terminator Ridge. My old lungs couldn’t do many of the steep ascents. Then we marvelled at incredible 360 0 views from The Eagles’ Nest restaurant – the highest restaurant in Canada. Spirit Square in the center of Golden, B.C. by the Columbia River, where people gather, the market, Canada Day and summer evening concerts all happen. Stephanie & Jeff’s Flower Garden (ink & watercolour), Delicious desert, & evening campfire with the boys’ tunes (ink, Tombow & Faber-Castel markers). Memories to last a lifetime.
