L is for...

Lindy at Lake Louise

A blog is a great medium, because it was through my blog that I got to know Kay who lives in Canada. And when I went to Canada on holiday, she invited me to stay in a hotel with her and Lindy, her dog, and see some sights. I took her up on that offer and our first tour was of the Rocky Mountains. We walked around a bit in Banff and then we made our way to Lake Louise, a beautiful turquoise lake at the foot of a glacier.

Kay told me that when she first saw the glacier years earlier, it had been much larger. However, it was still very cold with the wind coming over the glacier and the lake and my coat didn't really warm me up enough. Fortunately Lindy didn't suffer from that at all, she had a very nice coat on: her own fur!

This is the letter L for ABC Wednesday. Why not join?


  1. And I knew Kay also through blogging and took her and Dick to the Atomium in Brussels ! what a wonderful day. Lindy I know very well too, but only virtually ! She seems to be such a nice dog !

  2. I was there this summer! It's beautiful, or I suppose I should say Lovely!

  3. Sounds like a lovely time. Carver, ABC Wed. Team

  4. Blogging friends are such a wonderful thing--to meet someone through a blog because of common interest is so special. The view is splendid, the mountains wonderful.

  5. I've made friends blogging, most of whom I've never met!

  6. I've been there and it is just as beautiful as it looks here. In fact I even went in the swimming pool of the hotel there. The water was beautifully warm That was about 1963.

  7. That is gorgeous!

    Catching up with ABC. Got busy the past couple of days and just now have the time to visit entries.

  8. Oh, I did miss this, didn't I? I haven't participated in ABC Wednesday since J, because I was so sick I missed K and L, two of my own initials.
    This is wonderful. Thanks for telling me I missed it. I would hate to have missed it twice.
    Luv, K
