Today was a down day – as in no driving except into town and back. Nevertheless, the day was just as memorable as any other…perhaps more so in some ways.
We decided to start the day with a walk around Lac Beauvert. Stepping out of our room we were greeted with a rainbow over the Lodge. So incredibly lucky to get the shot. The walk itself around the lake is short but breath-taking…the emerald waters reflecting mountains at every turn, other hikers greeting you ‘Good Morning’, around to the Outlook Cabin where Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip stayed, among other celebrities.
Arriving back at the lodge, we did a browse through the art gallery and a tour of the kitchen where Monica scraped dinner plates 36 years ago. Then into town for lunch at the Jasper Brewing Co. with a stop at Lake Edith and Lake Annette on the way. Monica remembered coming here to sun bath on her days off. Then back to the lodge to relax…totally. A dip in the pool with a mountain backdrop and even a short afternoon nap seemed sort of fairy tail-ish.
We got cleaned up for dinner and wandered over to the Moose’s Nook for a 7:30 reservation. We had a beautiful meal…lamb for me and duck for Monica…with red wine for both…and the piano player played Somewhere Over The Rainbow just for us.
After dinner, Monica and I snuck into her old residence. She was transported back 36 years and I caught it all on film. What a photo junkie 🙂 This was truly a wonderful day. Thank you Monica for bringing me here. Happy 36th Anniversary of being in Jasper, Babe.
