Hahaha! I recently heard a morning radio show host describe this year's month of May that way, and it's pretty accurate! It certainly does not feel like only 10 more sleeps until June, however there is not much a person can do about Mother Nature's mood, except make the best of it. And having some great friends come visit me in Canmore for the long weekend was definitely making the best of it!
I met Wendy last summer on my trip into the Bugaboos, and she and her sweetie Dave live in the Okanagan. They made the drive out to the Rockies late last week for a few days of fun in the not sun.
We spent one afternoon poking around the shops downtown, and I picked myself up a couple of new pieces of art from Fallen Leaf Art Gallery. I love trees, and these unique carvings are out of honeycomb onyx, which apparently is only found in Utah. Shout out to the friendly, generous gallery owners who also gifted me a cool stand for my Three Sisters piece when I was ogling their lovely stained glass displays.
|Cool stand! It was exactly what|
I was looking for!
And, of course I dragged my guests out hiking! On a long weekend it was especially challenging to escape the crowds, but we did manage to find our way to a deserted beach and enjoy lunch in peace.
We also had a beautiful evening at the top of Sulphur Mountain, where the skies started to clear up just as we arrived. I hadn't been up there since the new building construction was complete, so we went for a fabulous dinner at the Sky Bistro.
|What a view from the gondola!|
The vista is amazing! I highly recommend a late dinner
reservation, so that you can enjoy a Rockies sunset.
The days went by far too fast, as they always do when I'm not at work, but it was quality over quantity for sure. I'm not gonna lie.... I am excited for 'April' to end.... I am ready to see green rather than white in my pictures!
I received an anonymous birthday wish in
the mail... the kind words along with the treat
tucked inside the card were a nice surprise!
Thank you to the sender, whoever you are!
