So we had a great drive yesterday to Jasper. The sun was peeking out of the cloud cover occasionally and the views were spectacular!
Mountain goats were the only wildlife we spotted so far…well some goat bums anyway!
We had a wonderful dinner at Pyramid Lake Lodge…great food, very good service and Ivars’ said “A wonderful wine.” (Malbec, Luigi Bosco, Argentina).
And then back to Jasper Park Lodge! A fancy smancy hotel (the queen stayed here), fireplace, soaker tub and great view of the lake. Soooo…they got the finally got the heat working at 8:30 pm (thank goodness for the fireplace) but we still don’t have hot water. So much for the long, hot soak with a glass Chardonnay I was anticipating!
On a bright note for the evening…my very kind brother and sister in law from Thunder Bay called the Lodge, scoped out their wine cellar and sent us a very nice Cabernet Franc 2012 (Norman Hardie) for tonight’s viewing of the sunset. Thank you Steve and Mary…we miss you!!
Ivars is headed to a conference (GI issues for GPs) and will be back this afternoon. I’m going to work out and hope, hope, hope (fingers and toes crossed) we’ll have hot water later this morning!
I think I should practice my British accent and dust off my tiara…the queen is not happy with the “no hot water” situation !!!!
