Banff pics

My friend Syl and me!! She is my online buddy for 9 years so it was great to finally meet.
The Rep of the Year and me
Korey's new friend.
Our hotel...a castle. How cool is that? Waldhaus German restaurant...fondue and creme brulee! I could hardly walk home!
Us, having a great time!
Korey went on a gondola ride up the mountain...here is one of the shots he took! If you look to the right, we stayed here...we didn't stay in the main castle.
Just a pretty picture I took while walking on the walkway from our part of the hotel to the main part.

We are off to a dinner reception tonight. We went white water rafting today....I will have pics of that at some point and tell more.

Saw your comment on my blog. Send me your email address and I'll be happy to tell you how to get some of these deals! It may be a bit late to take advantage of them for this week, but they're sure to come back around -

How wonderful that you got to meet Syl! I'm jealous!! You'll have to write all about it when you get home, if you have time!!!
I am glad you and Korey are enjoying yourselves up there!!

I just left you a long message PLEAS dont tell me its gone.. this is a test message before I have to write it again!

LeeAnn said...

ok Lets see...

Your Hotel scared me. It looked like the Overlook Hotel. ( that was the one that was filmed in the movie the Shining) did you see REDRUM painted on the wals? I loved the pic of your friends behind the roc. It loked as though they were climbing up the mountain.

Your pics were very nice. I wished that I was here with you. I had no idea how pretty it was. Did you get my maple syrup?

oved the ones of Maddie.. The one of all 5 of you at the icecream place is my favorite.. I may order that one. ok Disney Im working on other things right now.. Disney has been pushed outof the way... For the moment.. But odnt worry... I may take you up on that free place to stay!

Arthur and I have been to Banff many times - skiing of course. It's nice to see it in the summer. Enjoy!

I love the castle look but until I saw Leeann's comment, I wouldn't have associated it with The Shining! LOL!! That's a good visual.
I'm not a member of obc2 anymore, so if you get a chance, please send me details on your meeting with Syl??

I love the view from your window....
