Day 8 - A Day in Calgary

The day starts out slow and it is nice to be with family.  

The day is beautiful, high 20s.  Where Brenda lives it has really developed and we take a nice path to a commercial area and get some coffees at Starbucks. 

This is where we see the antique - a Corba Jet

Here is a picture of a magpie, I think they are a beautiful bird, and especially love their long tail.  But locals find them a nuisance. 

We head to our friends Paul and Yvonne for lunch today.  We originally met them a long time ago on a cruise.  Since then we have sailed numerous times with them.  We have also seen them in Vancouver and now we get the pleasure of seeing them in their home town.

The meal was great, and it is like no time has passed.  Always enjoy getting together with them.  We are also trying to talk them into coming on one of the legs of the South African cruise.

Back at Brenda's home, Karen has arrived and we are joined by good friend Jean for a lovely dinner.

I love visiting with my sister in laws.  I wish we lived closer so we could spend more time with them.
