On Sunday they shall rest! My friends requested some time to see the sights in the city of Calgary. Well, that was a challenge for me to come up with where we should go as sightseeing in the city is not my forte. I live in it and work in it and that's about it. Keeping it simple we drove to the curling club parking lot off Memorial Drive and explored from there.

Not far down the street we stopped into the Bernard Calebaut chocolate shop.
If the cupcakes didn't alter our sugar levels, the chocolates would.
Yes, they were delicious.
Next on our agenda was a cool refreshment to wash down the sweet treats.
Before heading back to the curling club we stopped off at Eau Claire at another pub for more refreshments. Our designated driver enjoyed her water. We chatted, laughed, got silly then got on our way. An easy early evening at home was needed in preparation for an early start tomorrow. This visit with my friends feels so good and it feels so right. It is taking no effort at all to renew and no effort at all in forming new friendships. Life is good, right!
