After checking out of the hotel we loaded up the rental and headed out of town with a nervous driver at the wheel..
Unfortunately it was raining and bitterly cold but we decided we'd drive out to Lake Louise before driving to Calgary.
Good Decision..The lake was frozen and looked magical.Snow piled high everywhere and a wind that you could cut with a knife!We headed into the hotel to look around and I must admit it was pretty posh.The doormen were dressed in Austrian clothing and there was a Canadian Mountie walking around having his photo taken with guests.Well worth the visit.
Back in the car and took a few detours to get back to the highway to take us to Calgary..So lucky we did that as now we were seeing the wildlife up close..Got some great shots of moose and mountain goats..
The drive in the rain to Calgary was a bit streesful for Andrew but with help of an in built navigator,we finally made it..
On the 10th floor of the International Hotel in the city..In a 2 room apartment that's very spacious with lounge,full size dining table and TV.
Decided not to brave the cold and go out for dinner so went to the hotel's restaurant and had a great meal of filet mignon for 3 of us and a 12oz rump for Andrew.
Need a good night's sleep..Will try to put some decent photos on next blog..Not too good at it!!
