Coming down from the Rocky Mountain High of yesterday, today we relaxed the morning away at Sarah’s in Red deer. The day began with a coffee run. Sarah was my navigator and she showed me some of the sights in her neighborhood. I wanted Starbucks because there was no line-up in the drive through. Tim Horton’s had at least 25 cars lined up wrapping right around the store and out onto the street. So, of course, that’s where we went. On the way back to the house, we saw the Bower Ponds Park which is literally a 5 minute walk from Sarah’s house. Beautiful spot…lots of dog walkers.
Once we got everyone caffiened-up, we struck out for Edmonton…and made, it amidst unbelievable traffic. What a busy province!!
We really enjoyed the mall for a couple of hours. What a fun place. It really is a complete day adventure but we rushed through in just a couple of hours. Then back to the hotel for supper at The Chops steakhouse. Fantastic meal. Just one little hiccup when I reached for my camera and spilled red wine on Monica. I was red in the face – she was most gracious.
This is Ryan’s last night with us. Tomorrow he flies back to NB. It’s been a total blast but we will miss him as we continue on for another week. Here is the obligatory photo journal of the day.
