So this morning early we
headed down the airport at PEI for my flight to Calgary. The flight was to
take off at 8.30am, head to Halifax, Nova Scotia, where I was to catch the
flight to Toronto and then another flight there to Calgary. All went very
smoothly and I can certainly recommend Air Canada to anyone as in my
opinion they give you more leg room that any other airline I've been on.
Anyway here are the photos
from todays journey...
My hire car before taking it back and you can
see all the ice around the wheel arch
This is Billy who was all ready to meet me
when I arrived in Calgary and after a short delay waiting for the luggage
it was off on our 4.5 hour ride to Kimberley.
Calgary is actually a lot larger than I
thought it would be and it took a fair time to get through the city and
out on the main highway
And now we're well on our way to the Rockies
The bridge on the left was actually build for
the animals to cross over the highway safely
And this was us arriving at British Columbia
This is a warning sign about a run off and on
the right you can see the actual run off going way up the hill. This
is where the heavy waggons lose there breaks and so this gives them a
chance of survival.
And pretty much the first sign of habitation
since we hit the highway
And while is was now getting dark we were now
not far from Billy's home where his wife Debbie and Son Donald made me
very welcome and boy did I sleep well that night.
