We have spent several days in the town of Banff in a bit more relaxed fashion, not hiking, almost like a vacation!  Here are a few scenes from the area around the town of Banff.

On the rooftop patio of our favorite restaurant, the Rose and Crown. We offer a toast to retirement each day!

A fence to keep some animals in and to keep other animals out

There are many beautiful private homes along the Bow River

Across from the library where we have spent a lot of internet time, Cascade Mountain in the background

Many of the flowers have been nipped by the frost, but there are still many beautiful baskets and  flower beds.

    KJ and DJ!!! Banff looks like an absolutely enchanting place! How beautiful! I wish I could join the two of you up on the roof top patio for a toast as well!

    • You will get here one day for sure because there is so much of what you love to do. Wish you could join us as well! Some days ( like today), we have to do the toast with water, but we always do it.
