On one of my recent postings, I said, “Travel is good for the soul”… So very true! Jorge and I have spent lazy days basking in peace at our “doll house on the sea” and on a few occasions, we’ve partied harder than we knew we still could! We’ve visited many of the incredible natural attractions of western Canada and shopped in unique boutiques. (You know me… this part was very, very fun! ) Seeing new sights and old friends… as well feasting on delicacies that are seldom-available in Merida has renewed our energy and rejuvenated our outlook on life.
But now, after almost three weeks, we’ve come to the last day of our holiday in Canada. We’ve had an absolute blast but are now looking very forward to getting back to Merida and seeing all our family and friends there. Tomorrow, Ali and Vanda will have us at the airport by (groan) 5 am. They are troopers, I can tell you. On Monday, I’ll be back writing regularly on “Writing From Merida”
I hope you enjoy these final pics…
Mary and I say goodbye on the steps of the doll house… you’ll all be seeing her in Merida this fall
Driving along English Bay enroute for YVR
We had lunch here in tiny Twin Butte – Look at the sign above the roof! The house-specialty is “Mexican food” and it was good… the owners explained that they spend their winters in Playa del Carmen. We were flabergasted to see once again just how small the world really is!
We saw these two fawns along the roadside
The final destination of our drive was Waterton. The crystal clear, glacier- fed lakes straddle the Canada – USA Rockies. Breathtaking!

Waterton’s Hotel Prince of Wales is one of the hotels built by the Canadian Pacific Railway at the turn of the century… No, we didn’t spend the night here. But there’s always next time!
Truly, we are blessed.
