Sunday 6th September 2015…Day 13!!!

As I did not have Internet Sunday night and I did not want to do one big blog of two days so after you read this blog scroll down to the next one which is actually today’s Monday!!!!

 

I was up at 8am and on the road by 8.30am I knew that the place where I was staying tonight was in the middle of the Ice fields and that there was a store and restaurant there but the reviews I read all said the same thing very expensive and very poor…..so I stocked up a little before I left Jasper.

The drive was quiet

I arrived at the accommodation at 4pm but they would not let me into my room till 5pm so I took some time to walk around….

I went inside the store can you believe these prices!!!  Not to mention quality!!!!

It is nice but certainly not worth the price I paid 160 dollars…the only reason is that there is nothing anywhere close and I needed to stay here so I can do the tour that I am doing at 10am tomorrow….so just a one off!!!!

Had a lovely turkey salad sandwich for dinner which I made myself not going to pay the 19 dollar priced hamburger!!!

Wrote this and now going to watch a movie!!!!

Be sure to scroll down for Monday’s blog!!!

"Sit Quietly and Discover", I wish more people could understand and follow that. Great scenery and the pot holes are cool!
