I woke up and found a card…
I opened a door as it says…
Yeah! Thank you Santa!
Stocking can always make us happy.
It’s time to leave Banff; but, finally I had a nice clear day.
I could clearly see Canadian Rockies.
I didn’t know that I had this view from my room till now…departure…
On the way to the Calgary airport, I could observe numerous mountains clearly.
Due to the angle, it looks like a caterpillar…?
Ha Ling Peak
The pointy mountain on the right.
Three mountains at far left are Three Sisters.
It’s trapezoid/trapezium topped mountain.
The end of Canadian Rockies.
It looks like a Gyoza (dumpling).
It was fun to hunt for mountains.
I became thirsty after hunting for mountans.
At the Calgary Airport, I enjoyed detox cold press juice, Jugo Juice Max Vege.
It looks vege, but it is easy to drink and delicious.
I thought I can take a nap on the plane.
However, I enjoyed watching Canadian Rockies.
I could clearly see them from plane!
Aren’t they gorgeous?
First, went to the Butchart Gardens for afternoon tea (lunch).
After afternoon tea, visited few gardens.
Then left for the Parliament Building.
The Parliament Building is nicely decorated for Christmas.
Tonight’s’ hotel, the Grand Pacific Hotel is just next to the Parliament Building.
Hotel room is cozy.
And their hospitality is sweet.
A hotel staff visited my room to extend me a warm Merry Christmas, a greeting card and Christmas cookies!
After freshen up, went out for a seafood dinner.
Salmon was cooked on a board of cedar (perhaps, to get smoked aroma…?) and vegetables were hiding under a board.
I’m glad that I came during Christmas because a town itself dresses up for Christmas and everybody is in a good spirit wishing for everybody’s happiness.
