Banff 2012

Everyone deserves a middle of winter getaway and it doesn't have to be somewhere tropical. Banff was gorgeous! Not a lot of snow on the ground but the temperatures were perfect for exploring the town before heading to our chalet for the night. The main building housed the swimming pool, sauna, hot tub and a couple of wicked waterslides that AJ got me on! Our chalet had a tiny kitchen with everything you could need, including a breakfast bar to sit and watch the chef do his thing!. We had the breakfast package pre-delivered...yum...great value! There was a comfy nook for more formal dining. We had a wood burning fireplace, balcony looking down a treed ravine. Up in the loft area were 2 double beds and a half bath. Downstairs, a double bedroom and a full bed completed our hideaway in the mountains.

What a wonderful time we had! It was so nice to get all dolled up and go out on the town! We were met at the door with a dram of scotch. We sat at the Dunoon least we could pronounce it, some tables were very challenging to pronounce, especially as the night went on. After cocktails, the haggis was piped in and dinner was served.  It was a scrumptious prime rib meal with all the fixings. We all had our fill and then some...seconds were offered and not refused.  Dessert followed and then a real treat of the night.  Local Highland dancers of every age group!  Oh to fling again! lol  

And then back to reality and home!  It was an incredible getaway. Could I get any luckier?  I think not! ♥ ♥ ♥ Babe, you looked incredibly handsome in your kilt!  Should have bought it years ago!!!!
