Ever been to Edmonton?

First impressions….FLAT and spread out, lots of construction sites, lovely green river valley.

Wandering around downtown in the “Arts” district on a Friday night….there were very few people.  Nothing like Vancouver, Victoria or Seattle.  No buskers or street side vendors.  So we ended up back in our hotel room watching the football game and called it an early night.  (Edmonton beat the Argos!  Boohoo!)

In the morning after coffee on the patio overlooking the river, we rented bicycles down by the river and went for a beautiful bike ride through parks and green spaces for a couple of hours, stopping for a picnic along the way.
