|The Last Days....|
And a great weekend it was!
Rod and Christine asked us if we wanted to have dinner at Lakeside Pub on the Beach Sunday (the last day) "Sure" , we said since our food supply is dwindling quickly.
Bob and I are slowing adjusting to "Valley Time" and not be as punctual (us Southern Ontarians are so anal about being 10 minutes business punctual) as we arrive 5 minutes late. Good job at that. We we admiring the Osprey sitting on a post just outside the restaurant as Rod and Christine are waiting for us outside.
Not a clue why.....until we entered the dining room.
SURPRISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! At least 40 of our new found friends were all waiting for the guests of honour. Us!

|Rod & Bob (just a kiss between friends)|

|Gee, our "ski mom"|
Because of you, we will return. When we leave, we will miss everyone greatly, but at the same time we look forward to returning home to our family and friends.

It is now serene and quiet as we enjoy the warm sun as we toast to a great season and gaze at the hill as we see a lone snowboarder glide down one last time.
We will take our time travelling back to Ontario (approx 10 days). But first, a stop in Calgary to visit a close friend as he is relocating to the west.
Now, it is time to pack up. Will it all fit?
