|Lake Louise, Alberta|
Tuesday, 29 May 2012
Mike chatted with the father who told him they were living in Dallas, Texas and had come up to Banff/Lake Louise for a 5-day vacation. He asked where we lived and when Mike told him Calgary, he said, "It must be wonderful to live so close and be able to come here anytime you want," with an authentically awestruck look on his face.
I gazed around me at the stunning views and realized anew that we were indeed very lucky. Seven months in Mazatlan, and now here in the Rocky Mountains where people come from all over the world for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The languages I heard as we walked the path were many and varied. They all came for a week or two, and may never come back and see it all again. We came for a couple of hours, and could come back on a daily basis if we wanted to.
Yep - very lucky. Do you feel lucky to be living where you live?
