Wow, Edmonton is quite a nice little city, I think that I like it The weather is beautiful, the dust bunny (Kia), is woking fine and we are eating well. Some business from yesterday…
I did find something in Jasper from my many years ago romance with this place. There was a cartoon bear named JASPER and at one time the city of Jasper was littered with him. I may have found the very last one of these! The trip was not a total failure!
On the way to Edmonton I met a new friend in Edson Alberta, his name is Eddie!
To celebrate our cultural roots, we went to the Art Gallery of Alberts. This should be a nice visit for anyone who comes to Edmonton!
I am a great lover of folk art and not just because I am not a good drawer 🙂
Off to Strathcona which is a bit like Vancouver’s East End, but having more success. Here is what it is like…
And last but not least, the Pyramids of Edmonton. Yes, these monuments to ancient culture sit upon a small hill and….never mind the ancient alien thing.
We have a busy day tomorrow so I may not get to update my travel then, but look out on Saturday when we are heading to Saskatoon
Happy, Happy birthday to my darling wee little sister Cindy, I wish you the best year ever!! Lots of love!!
The Next Day
Fort Edmonton was an absolute delight and worth walking around!
We had a wonderful dinner with old friends in Wilocks AB, about an hour north of Edmonton (Buffet Prime Rib), and then drove back. Instead of going straight home, we decided to check out the Edmonton neon light district. Thank you, Jeff and Marni!!
Edmonton is a great city well worth visiting. Put it on your list!
