Susanne and I are off to Waterton National Park (or Waterton village to be more specific) - I guess I mentioned this somewhere on the board not so long ago.  We leave tomorrow morning.  The drive will be around 4 hours long, though we'll stop for lunch in a small town south of here on the way.  Meanwhile because we are staying (free of charge) in the town - we will have to stay in the only accommodation that the festival organizers could drum up...and that is an empty apartment that is normally for park employees.  Empty is the word, although it does have two beds, and stove and fridge, etc..  But we must bring utensils, dishes, pots and towels and bedding and whatever else we think we'll need not supplied. (Wracking my brains to think of all that we may need!). 

We'll be there from Wednesday evening to Saturday noon or so.  Then it's back home from there.  Susanne is teaching 3 art classes in the morning hours on the three days.  I may attend one or two of them, but the third is actually a repeat of the first so I won't be taking that one.  The classes are held outside.  Just saw on the weather site online that rain is expected for Thursday though.  Somehow the class will have to be held indoors if it is raining as who can work outdoors doing art in the rain? 

Anyway I'll be back by Saturday evening or more probably only Sunday when I can get online then, I think. 

Keep well, everyone!

Just imagine what you'd have supplied in a decent hotel suite.  Bring disposable dishes, some kitchenware, dishtowel, dishrag, dishsoap, coffee maker, coffee, bottled water, ice, bedding, bath towels, shampoo, conditioner, bath soap, portable wi-fi hotspot,  and  a recharge cord or garage.

Hope you have fun
