Leaving Calgary

We're leaving Calgary this afternoon after nearly four weeks. The work has been good, the recreation excellent! In different ways Calgary has welcomed us with open arms, demonstrated that its values are intact, and provided us with many good memories. Not the least to be remembered are the hotel staff, particularly the waitstaff every morning (6:30 a.m.) as the orange juice flows and the day begins!

Ironically the past two weeks have been unusually warm with afternoon temperatures soaring to the mid-teens (Celsius). Lots of sunshine here makes winter a different proposition from England where grey is the color of winter. And it looks as though we'll be flying home to some snow!
