Day 15 – Yorkton to Riding Mountain National Park

Breakfast was served starting at 5:30 am today, so knowing that I was going to loose an hour once I crossed into Manitoba, I decided I might as well get started early. Other than getting a stone chip on my windshield, the drive was uneventful and I was soon in Riding Mountain National Park.  I… Continue reading Day 15 – Yorkton to Riding Mountain National Park

Day 14 – Calgary to Yorkton

After a good night’s sleep, I woke up to Sharon busy in the kitchen getting ready to make pancakes, bacon and sausage.  What a great feast to start the day.  🙂 After scraping the frost off my car (again) I headed east into the rising sun. There were no mountain views to take pictures of,… Continue reading Day 14 – Calgary to Yorkton

Day 13 – Banff to Calgary

After breakfast this morning, I headed back to take those 2 drives, expecting to find the critters that were usually around there.  The Big Horn Sheep have always been around the first drive, but again this morning, they were completely absent.  Luckily it is still a beautiful drive.  When I was almost finished that circle… Continue reading Day 13 – Banff to Calgary

Day 12 – Jasper to Banff

Another beautiful morning and there was no frost on my car windows.  🙂  I took a picture of the mountains from my room in the dark before heading over for breakfast.  Mountains are beautiful even in the dark. For breakfast this morning I had banana bread french toast and it was delicious.  I didn’t stop… Continue reading Day 12 – Jasper to Banff

Day 11 – Jasper

I’m back in Alberta and have frost on my windshield again!  As far as I know, Manitoba hasn’t had frost yet. Of course, I don’t know – but feel the need to complain!  🙂 Once the frost was removed, it turned out to be an absolutely beautiful day here in Jasper. I had breakfast at… Continue reading Day 11 – Jasper

Day 10 – Port Coquitlam to Jasper

I got off to an early start on a cloudy, but dry morning today.  Driving east instead of west, means that I get to look right at the bright sun in the early morning instead of afternoon, but I got lucky to have the clouds with me until almost noon.  Then the sun came out… Continue reading Day 10 – Port Coquitlam to Jasper

Day 9 – Port Coquitlam

Good thing I had a couple of days prepared in advance.  I could not get a wifi capable of loading my pictures, so couldn’t post from Jasper.  Now, we are one more day delay in posting. Angie and I went for breakfast at Da Dutch this morning for the 2nd time – it is so… Continue reading Day 9 – Port Coquitlam

Day 8 – Fanny Bay to Port Coquitlam

It rained over night, but we woke up to a beautiful morning today. Doug and Erin have a beautiful stained glass of Stellar Jays on a sunflower hanging in their window and they told me the story about it.  So – I took a picture of it to tell you about it too.  Erin had… Continue reading Day 8 – Fanny Bay to Port Coquitlam

Day 7 – Fanny Bay

The day started out cool and cloudy with a threat of rain, but turned out to be not too bad for doing some walking – so we took a couple of walking trips. First up was a trail that starts just inside Doug and Erin’s back yard and goes right to the water at Fanny… Continue reading Day 7 – Fanny Bay

Day 6 – Port Coquitlam to Fanny Bay

This morning I had a reservation for the ferry to Vancouver Island set for 10:50 am.  I started to figure out that would mean I should be there at 9:50 am and since it would take at least an hour to get to the ferry, I would have to leave at 8:30 or so.  That… Continue reading Day 6 – Port Coquitlam to Fanny Bay
