Off the Beaten Path....Road Trip

You have not heard from me because I have been on a girls road trip.My friend Sandy lives in beautiful British Coloumbia (she just moved there in November. Because of the possible bad weather in the Rockies she left her baby volkswagon here. So we drove the baby back. For those of you who do not know Canada, there is Alberta (where I live, the rockies then BC. We did encounter bad weather road wise, but slogged on. Some Demon truck drivers, and some amazing scenery in the Rockies.These mountain sheep were on the side of the road into Jasper. We did stop to do a little shopping, bad roads do not deter shopping. This is what you see when you get out of the car.We slogged on and arrived at her mountain hideaway at about 7:00 PM. We did not stop talking the whole way we have been friends for at least 30 years and know each other well.They get alot of snow in the winter because they are in the mountains, but not cold temperatures. Summer is hot and sunny. This is the house my first visit here. I was amazed at the beauty that surrounds it. In we go for the visit I will let the pictures talk for themselves.

These pictures do not do justice to the house, its beautiful. I call it the mountain lodge. I felt like I was in a 5 star hotel. I slept down on the lower floor. I forgot to take pictures of that but I did take pictures of what I woke up to each day.
Everything I needed was provided, from shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, puff. To a bathrobe in the door scented with Lavender. All and All I had a great time, with two great people and cant wait to visit again. Its now back to reality, laundry, cooking and cleaning. I did no art there, but I needed the break, it was very restful and I feel refreshed and ready to get going. See you all tommorow.

I especially loved our road trip, it was non-stop chatter the whole way, some real good bonding was also good to get my little Lucy Bug back home...she loves to drive in the mountains!
