Canadian Summer HolidayJuly 20, 2018 • Photo Diary
We just got back from 10 days in Canada! Specifically, we were in Calgary and area, which is my hometown. It was Katy’s first trip to Calgary (she’s been to BC, as her sister in law is from the Island), and her first time meeting my family! It was a jam-packed trip. We explored the city, popped up to Edmonton to visit Fort Edmonton Park and have a barbecue with family, and spent some time in the mountains.
As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, so I’ve decided to make this post a photo diary. I will break things down into categories based on location, but basically this is going to be 40+ photos in a row. Sorry if you’re not on wifi!
Fort Edmonton Park
Okay, this needs a little explanation. Basically, Canada is a very young country. Our oldest things in Western Canada are a bit over 100 years old. Fort Edmonton is a collection of old buildings meant to preserve our history. You start out at the old Hudson’s Bay Company trading fort from the 1700s. Then there’s a bit of a street meant to emulate the area in 1885. Then a bit for 1905. And finally a 1925 midway.
My Brother’s Breakfast
Okay, this is a bit of a weird one. But we went for breakfast at Under The High Wheel in Edmonton, and my brother’s breakfast was really attractive.
