Relaxing

I'm posting these out of order, but the internet is really slow and my posts about our visit with the Norwegians, and our trip to Sulphur Mountain won't post...

After our visit to Sulphur Mountain Wednesday morning, we didn't feel like doing anything strenuous - but the Banff Hot Springs sounded perfect! So we went back to the camper for a quick lunch and to check on the dogs (and turn on the AC as by noon it was getting pretty hot!). Then we loaded back into the truck for the drive back to the Upper Hot Springs.

And it was relaxing... mostly. To start, Carm had forgotten his bathing suit but luckily they had rentals. Then he lost his key to his locker. They fixed him up with a new one. Meanwhile, I soaked in the relaxing hot mineral water in the pool. Hummmmmmm..... oh.......... yeah.............. Once Carm got himself sorted he was in the pool striking up a conversation with the man next to him. They had a good chat about politics and other such things. Myself... I prefer to just relax in the hot water with my eyes closed. Relaxing ;-)

So right now we are sitting outside the camper, in the shade, enjoying a bit of breeze on this hot summer day. I just received an email from Cynthia, one of my bestest friends ever. She lives in Australia now, and we haven't seen each other for years... but!!!!! she is visiting her mother in Canmore right now so if the stars align just right we can get together! I'm just about busting out of my seat waiting for her to return my phone call!!!!!


I've decided (rather late into our trip) that we need a theme song to sing as we hit the road each day. I looked at the lyrics for many songs, and the one we've agreed on is "On the Road Again" by Willie Nelson. I'll make a singer of Carm yet!


On the road again -Just can't wait to get on the road again. The life I love is making music with my friends
And I can't wait to get on the road again. On the road again
Goin' places that I've never been. Seein' things that I may never see again

And I can't wait to get on the road again.
On the road again -Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway
We're the best of friends. Insisting that the world keep turning our way
And our way is on the road again.
Just can't wait to get on the road again. The life I love is makin' music with my friends
And I can't wait to get on the road again. On the road again
Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway We're the best of friends
Insisting that the world keep turning our way
And our way is on the road again. Just can't wait to get on the road again. The life I love is makin' music with my friends
And I can't wait to get on the road again. And I can't wait to get on the road again.

(my added line would be, but I'm happy to spend a few days here!)
