Honeymoon in Canada

Well you may just have noticed that I was missing for a little while - I have been to Do a Tour called the Canadian Oddessey - which took us from Toronto through the Rocky Mountains to Vancouver.
It was the most fantastic trip ever, we all felt that we needed to pinch ourselves everyday just to make sure it was real.  We were on a tour with 22 other folks, and it was a fantastic group - all with superb senses of humour and all very easy going.  Our Tour Manager also was great and looked after us exceedingly well.  So it was a holiday to remember.
 Day One and a tour of Toronto followed by a Harbour Cruise.  The weather was absolutely spectacular, around 28/29 degrees and clear blue skies.
 Day Two was a trip to Niagra - we flew over the falls in a helicopter first then to the falls themselves and on the maid of mist boat trip right into the falls and got slightly wet - it was an experience to remember. 
 Day three to Banff and a trip around Banff and these were the Bow River Falls - superb again the weather was absolutely fantastic.  We had a great tour around and it was a great trip.
This little fellow was busy collected food for his winter store - and just stopped to let us take a snap.
Lake Louise came next - named for one of Queen Victoria's daughters and oh what a view, we had a view of the lake from our hotel room.  The place was so opulent and the food was gorgeous.
Then to the Athabasgar Glacier - oh I just loved the way the canadian's draweled their words, they sounded so sexy - we were lucky our drivers were really proud of their Country and the Rocky Mountains.
We went on a trip on these enormous buses with the most fantastic tyres which enabled them to travel on the the glacier then we got out and had a walk around.

The Rockies have some of the most fabulous named places this was "Natural Bridge" at Kicking Horse |Pass!!!  The beauty of the place was just breathtaking.

Now I have spent hours just trying to download these photos so - I am going to do another post tomorrow with more photos.

I found a quilting shop in Banff which was called StychenTyme - lovely ladies with a fabulous selection of fabrics and wools! 

In truth with the trouble I have had with the uploading of photos today, it might take two more posts to go through the entire holiday!!!  So watch this space!!

  1. Oh Pam... how wonderful! I've been to Niagra Falls but it was so misty all we could do was hear the falls and never got to actually see them.
