|Without Really Meaning To |
I Found Myself In Lake Louise
Whilst dreaming of palm trees I found myself quite by surprise in a snowy playground. It all happened so quickly. Without really meaning to I found myself in Lake Louise with my family. It was a winter wonderland. Skaters were pirouetting on the ice, horse-drawn sleighs were making the rounds, drinks and food were being served at outdoor fires. Myself and my daughters edged towards the carved ice castle that was on the lake with that world famous view as a back drop (I refuse to use the word iconic). We were all smiling and turning around 360 degrees taking it all in. It felt like a vortex of happy energy as people were clearly enjoying themselves. My spirits lifted as the sun played peekaboo with the clouds. Leaving the men to snowshoe and ski, we reconnoitered in the chateau for high tea. It was rather sublime. I find that sometimes the best and most remarkable experiences are those that are unexpected and unplanned.
