I have been away and I have been busy! What a busy week it has been! Thank you for your patience & faithfulness & comments. I appreciate both.
First of all, I had a quick & fun road trip on my own this week. I took off on Tuesday morning to Calgary for a couple days to visit my sister-in-law. It was the perfect time of year to go (before the unpredictable Alberta winters start) and the roads were beautiful. My hubby wasn't able to come so I made the trip alone & thoroughly enjoyed the drive. Stopped often to take photos of course and I will post more of those in the future I'm sure.
My sis & I had a great visit and my heart left Calgary very happy for her! I stayed in a beautiful Bed & Breakfast along Calgary's Fish Creek Park and spent some nice time hiking & exploring in the park. It was truly Fall already there, lots of beautiful leaves & a great crisp Fall smell in the air!
The weekend too was very busy. Barely had time to get home before we were off on another adventure. Some visiting photographers were in town this past week and busy doing photo outings. We joined them on Saturday morning to do the historical Mascot Mine tour in Hedley, BC. I have several photos of this fantastic mine that was built into the side of a cliff about a mile above sea level. It was a great tour and we loved the history of it...but oh the stairs. 589 of them, down and back up again! The ol' calves are a little tense now! But we did it and it was a very enjoyable & full day!
Sunday too, mom & dad came up and the 4 of us drove out to the Rock Creek Fall Fair. It was great as far as country fairs go. We watched lots of barrel racing, ate great greasy fair food, saw all the exhibits & Lawrence even won me a little stuffed pony throwing darts at balloons! A fun time was had by all!
So, now its back to Monday. I have dozens of photos to process and an article to write & appointments to make. Lots filling my mind already this Monday morning but I wanted to come in & say hello and share a few quick photos so you know I haven't forgotten you or your blogs.
Have a great week!!
