“Sunrise wake up call” means they will keep calling your room at 5:20, 5:21, 5:22, 5:23 until you figure out how to properly answer the phone and acknowledge the call. Then they send a person to knock on the door to see if you really ARE awake. Unfortunately, this commotion also wakes up the person who does NOT want a 5:20 wake up because you can see the sunrise perfectly fine out of the window. From the bed.
On a walk along the lake I wanted to take some “background pictures” to use in the digital photo album I’ll make for this trip. I like using my own rather than the stock backgrounds in Picaboo. Samples:
I’d like to think I got exercise, but with stopping every few minutes for photos there wasn’t anything aerobic about this 2 mile “hike.” Maybe dodging mud puddles counts as Jumping Jacks. I was also working on my “selfie” skills. My brain isn’t wired for taking photos of us that includes both people and background scenery. This is what I got:
Took off for Lake Moraine after lunch. Supposed to be the most gorgeous lake we would see. Shortly after Pat and John started climbing a moutain of landslide rocks, the rain began pouring down. Since I wasn’t climbing I was able to get some ground level shots of a logjam.
So…our room here at this Scottish castle style hotel looks down on to the entrance. The first few times I looked out the window I wondered why the horse in front of the main entrance wasn’t moving along. Every time I looked out he was standing there. Seriously.
These were soooo good. One of our foursome, who asked me not to name her, (ha!) wondered if I actually got 15 stalks because the menu said “Asparagus 15.” This person must not eat out often enough to realize that they actually put prices on the menu. $15 not 15 asparagus. Funny thing is, there were actually 15 asparagus in the bundles.
John’s veggie choice:
Beddy bye time. Tomorrow a Bow River float trip — probably in the rain.
