Ladies weekend in Canmore

This was my first visit to beautiful Canmore, though we have driven through this area on our way to BC, it was so pretty, the mountains were right in your face everywhere you looked. In total there were 8 of us that stayed at the Drake Motel in Canmore, most stayed for 2 nights, but others just one, others came for the evening and drove home.

Canmore is about 60 minutes west of Calgary

The architecture is Swiss Mountain Village style

On a walk near the hotel by a river

Families of Ducks were skating on the ice

The main shopping streets were full of quaint rustic shops, cafes and Pubs

Time for cocktails

At breakfast the next morning, we all felt a little odd

Guess who is the pink leapard and Elmo foot?

Jane and Jill

Shona, me and Bernie

Yes there are bears in Canmore, but they are still sleeping

Jacqui and I ate at this Pub I had striped, coloured pasta in a mushroom sauce, it was very tasty Shauna's Caeser look really fancy!
