Where I stayed
Beverley's place in Leduc
Also saw Lake Louise a bit later but I preferred Lake Moraine as it was minus the massive Chateau that ruins Lake Louise (just my humble opinion). Did hear an avalanche at Lake Louise so that was pretty cool. Piccy's speak for themselves. Lost count of the black bears we saw along the road (Gill had lived in Canada for 50 years and they were the first bears she'd seen so she was pretty stoked).
Also took a trip to Vancouver Island with Beverley where we stayed with her friend, Belkis in Sooke. Visited Port Renfrew where we saw two gorgeous humpback whales so close to the rocks where we were walking - bloody amazing experience. Butchart Gardens is also worth a visit (not far from the airport) if you're into your plants, gardens.
