Yet another day of sightseeing, starting with breakfast then a wander around The Castle. On the coach and off to see Bow Falls, Tunnel Mountain & Surprise Corner. This is where the designer of The Castle meditated to get a sense of where The Castle should be built. What a magical place.
Off to see the HOODOO’s. Once again another beautiful location.
Police and Parks personnel were there, so mum got a picture with them. We didn’t know an old man was missing-poor thing had dementia. It wasn’t until we were leaving we were told I asked to look at a photo - Lachlan & I had walked passed him & his dog... what a nice feeling being able to give the location so a family could be reunited 💕
We headed in to town and were dropped off - guess what for? To do the washing 🤣
While that was happening we wandered around town, it’s very pretty and very touristy, with lots of photo opportunities (by the way mum got on the saddle all by herself 😂). Found the Mounted Police shop and mum picked up a couple of patches.
More walking and beautiful sunshine, such a pleasant place.
Washing’s all done so now we jumped on a local bus and headed out of town to find the Swiss Village Hotel. This was where dad stayed in 1977. The place is pretty tired but clean, yet another crossing of paths 42 years apart. We take a few photos and we hopped back on the bus and headed back into town. Feeling a bit peckish we let Lachlan pick the location for lunch.... Macca’s it is 😁
The burgers taste the same but the drinks are quite floury. Back on the public bus and up the hill to the castle... time to relax a little..... or is something else on the cards?????
