What an amazing trip, driving across British Columbia through many mountain ranges and then descending the foothills to Calgary for our visit with G. and S. and the grandchildren. We ate so much wonderful food, especially at J.s birthday dinner at the Mercato restaurant.
We spent Monday night visiting with my brothers in Fort Saskatchewan, and then back via Kamloops to West Vancouver for a few days. Lower Ambleside was like a botanical garden with all the lovely shrubs in blossom.
