Vacation Postcard #6

The Calgary Tower

We had dinner tonight in the revolving restaurant at the top of the Calgary Tower. The weather is sunny and warm and the view was beautiful. As we ate we watched the crowds gather to watch William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, along with Prime Minister Stephen Harper, leave the nearby Hyatt Hotel and travel the short distance to the BMO Centre near the grounds of the Calgary Stampede. We will spend the day tomorrow at the stampede. And here is a little bonus...

  1. What a thrill to see the royal couple...even from a distance.
    I have been to Calgary once for a night and a day at the stampede...much like you are. I enjoyed the stampede, except calf roping.
    Love your photos...and what a treat to dine at the revolving restaurant. Loving your postcards!

  2. Ruth, if you're still in Calgary, try and book a lunch or dinner at my son's restaurant, Catch -- attached to the Hyatt.

    If you go, let them know you're a friend of Ian Blaney's mom.

    Enjoy!

    Can hardly wait to see each day's news. The Lord is blessing you with extras because of your sacrifice last year to be with me and work hard.

  8. I'm with Cicero--that glass floor makes my feet ache and my toes curl.
