|View of reservoir and mountains from Glenmore Carewest|
I have gone from a major operation in the South Campus Hospital to the Sarcee Rehabilitation Unit and then over to the Glenmore Rehabilitation Unit.
|could the alberta skies have been bluer?!|
We did the trip in two days.

Canmore was as glorious as ever. The sky was an incredible blue.
|the view from mcDonalds?!|
Field was also beautiful. The water was so low in the kicking horse river that you could pretty much walk across.
We arrived in Sicamous to a surprise dinner party.

In the morning, we drove down to the beach for a look at the october horizon, and then headed back out on the road.
I had the joy, again, of the drive through the Rockies, and then the drive to the coast. A more misty day, but equally beautiful. Each curve of the road offered a vista worthy of a photo.
|J's cafe no longer in Hope, BC?!|
We continued on our way to the ferry terminal, and then the ferry.
I didn't know that the ferry has a full dinner buffet -- a table for two near the window and so much food that we didn't even get close to the dessert table.

The view out of the ferry windows trumped food for me.
For the last few days the weather has been spectacular -- for an Albertan. I am getting some sun on my shoulders and having safe walks up and down San Lorenzo Avenue. I take a walker with me in case I need to sit down, but that isn't working out. When I pause to rest, someone driving by always stops to ask if I am alright or if I need help.

I will take shorter walks more often, though that being said, it is hardly possible when the walking weather is perfect.
It is a thrill to have both feeet under me again and the power to take these leisurely walks in the sun.
