In celebrating Lou's birthday, Amy had a birthday cake (Gluten Free) made in the image of Bumble Bee the van we had in Europe...what a great surprise.
There are soooo many amazing-ly picture BEAUTIFUL sights in this part of Alberta, Canada... We have just left Lake Louise and headed for Calgary with stops along the way... Lake Moraine, The tourist town of Banff (we did see and enjoy "The Cave" mineral springs while there AND the mountain drive to see the city far below) but it was just toooo touristy and out of hand to stay. Then a drive around the Johnson Loop before setting the GPS for Ken and Maureen's for a couple of days exploring Calgary and visiting with good friends.
We just finished a "Family Appreciation Love In" for Louise's side of the family... We had "A Ball" !!! Thanks to all for the great family, food, and political talk... (along with some stiff drinks).
We just had to revisit Lake Louise and make the hike up to Lake Agnes and the Lake Agnes Tea House... We did this hike with Bonnie and Doug about 33 years ago and it was a little tougher on the body now vs then, BUT, WE MADE IT !!! It is an amazing hike with the views of Lake Louise falling off as the climb increases until we reach the waterfalls of Lake Agnes tumbling down beside us. Reaching the top of the falls we still find the same bridge crossing over the falks and the Tea House waiting for us on the other side... This was and still is one of those "Special" places in our journeys.
