Happy Anniversary & more visitors

Sunday, July 18th was our 34th wedding anniversary. We were checking out and heading south but first we enjoyed two hours with friends Jan & Paul and their pup Jazz. They were to spend a month visiting us at Holiday Park but cancelled because of the fires. Colin had hooked up the Jeep the night before. We packed up in the morning and then enjoyed our anniversary breakfast thanks to our friends but we kept the tiramisu cake for later in the day. Again I took few photos but Paul who is also a professional photographer took some.

Paul and Ciela. This photo was taken by Colin, the rest by Paul.

Jazz had an accident seven weeks ago that hurt her front leg. She is doing really well and should have her cast off in a few weeks.

Our girls hung out with Jan and cuddled her during the entire visit. They were not interested in playing with Jazz. I think they were dog and peopled out.

Our official anniversary portrait.

Great photo of Ciela.

Adios, we will see you again, hopefully sooner than later. The cake was delicious, thank you again. As you can see we did have some showers.

We were heading south to Rocky Mountain House and the smoke stayed with us. Being a Sunday we saw many many RV’s returning home. So many great places to camp in Alberta.

We stopped for diesel just past Warburg. Great price at 1.19 per litre. In Alberta you can tow two things on wheels behind you.

Our sleeping beauties.

It was a 124 mile/ 200 km drive. Our destination was the Riverview RV Park just outside of Rocky Mountain House, located on the North Saskatchewan River. Carlie missed her Dad when he went inside to check in and was so happy to see him.

The sites are huge as you can see. So much space per rv site. It really is an interesting park.

We saw a few carvings in the trees. Likely more but did not have time to check out the entire campground.

There are some trails but not really along the river.

We let the girls run with their leashes attached in this area. It was easy to contain them. They did need to do some running. It is not easy being on a leash or in a pen all day not to mention for almost two weeks.  The girls miss having our yard to run around in.

Of course they played in the river mud and got dirty as well as the harnesses and leashes. But they had fun, that was most important.

We both thought that we would be happy coming here for at least a week. Lovely place to walk and relax plus explore the area.

We ended the day with a nice dinner and special bottle of Pinot Gris and then the anniversary cake. It was a good day.

    Happy anniversary! You two picked well.

    In Minnesota you can also tow two things IF the first one is a 5th wheel.
