Jan 17, 2019 - Farewell to panorama

Hi all. Wish I could bring some snow home to cool things down your way. It’s lightly snowing today. We r nearly finished our skiing and snowboarding stint in panorama. It’s been good to be settled for a while and have a kitchen to cook in. The boys are doing the most challenging day of snowboarding today. They were all excited this morning. Takes quite a while to get dressed. Double layers of socks and gloves and thermals under all the other clothes . But it’s all worth it once outside. We will miss the beautiful snowy mountains. Off to...

Jan 15, 2019 - Panorama week 2

Panorama week 1 was dominated by all of us (me not so bad) getting through a gastro bug. Not fun but lots of card playing. Pleased to say we are all recovered.

We could work constructively hard putting in a late garden, clearing the brush, collecting a good supply of firewood and catching up on a few years of do-it –yourself neglect.

Jul 11, 2006 - Banff

Woke up to a beautiful day here this morning. I headed down to town by bus as we are about 1 1/2 kms out of town with a lot of other chalets and camping grounds. The buses run every 1/2 hour and there are 3 different routes in town which each seperate ride costs $2 no matter how far you travel for that ride. The town looks like an alpine village with a lot of wooded structures and flower baskets and window boxes all through the town. There are some really beautiful clothes, jewllery, the every present souveniers and eateries. There is a...
