We were able to visit with family of mine and stay in a guest apartment down the hall from them in their building. It was a really nice trip. And all 3 days were +20 Celsius / 68 Fahrenheit. I wore just a t-shirt mostly, with a sweater rarely. It was so beautiful we couldn't believe our luck.
DAY 2 - DEVONIAN GARDENS
This place is one I thought Carol would really enjoy, and I hadn't been in about 8 years, boy has it changed. It used to be closed off, now it is part of the mall, right next to the food court, and people can take their food and eat in there. What a peaceful place to have a break.
We also saw a magpie and a few small birds in there, they probably got in and couldn't get out... the magpie was flying back and forth the length of the mall.
The Calgary Tower
Pisces Pet Emporium
One of our favourite pet stores in Calgary.
They have a huge enclosed class room with little monkeys, so sweet.
Tadpoles, if I had an aquarium waiting at home... oh boy I was so tempted to come home with a bag. LOL At $40 each, that would be expensive. I LOVE FROGS, and so miss my aquariums. We had aquariums for about 15 years.
DAY 3 - THE RIDE HOME
Gophers, almost as cute as the meerkats at the zoo lol, we stopped for a rest and saw them, we were pretty far away.
