A New Year Has Begun...
With bright sunshine and some nice temperatures. It's about 0 C, which is definitely more manageable than the -25 C or so we've had most of this vacation. It is meant to last the whole week.
New Year's eve found us playing a neat board game struggling to stay awake to midnight. My new favourite game, Carcassonne..
You pick up tiles and build a world. So far I haven't won yet but I'll keep trying. My color is gray and there is nothing gray on that board.
On New Years Day Steve got the flu and we just kind of chilled waiting for him to recover. The plan was to go to Banff on Saturday, finally...but best laid plans an all that.
Sunday morning I woke with a migraine but decided that we were going no matter what. Popped some drugs and away we went. It was a beautiful day to drive to the mountains but cold. I think the high for the day was -11 and there was a real strong wind blowing.
It was a beautiful drive. More tomorrow...
