Tales From the Trail - Day 22

So no incredible people today. We went into breakfast (the free one at the hotel) and there were just 3 old ladies there. They were so quiet I thought we had either stumbled into a church or a funeral. It took only about 5 minutes for us to liven them up. We seem to have that effect on people. Anyway they were on their way home and they had come down from somewhere in northern Alberta for a funeral. Guess that is why they were so quiet. After they left a man and a much younger woman came in. We thought she was his arm piece. Turns out she is his daughter. Presently her husband and one of her sons came into the breakfast room. They were in town for a baseball game (her sons) Lee was busy entertaining them with all the places we had been and were going to be. The older man and the girl were lively and asking question and generally conversing with us. The husband said one sentence the whole time we sat there. "I ain't been east of Denver Colorado and got no need to go" that was it. What a crummy personalty he had to have such a bubbly wife.

Went to a Japanese Garden. It was OK and then we went back to a park by the high level bridge and had a picnic. the highlight of that trip was we saw a train crossing it and then an almost tragedy. Some woman came running up and asked if any of us in the area had left a baby in the car cause it was crying and the windows were only down a crack. The other people who were in the area with us went to investigate I said call the police right away. While they were discussing it the parents finely came out and the woman gave them hell. They never commented just got in their car and left.

Then we went to the top of the hill and took some better pictures of the bridge and took some better picts of the bridge. Then back to the motel for a nap. Geeze traveling is hard work. Oh I forgot we also went to a Walmart.
