Where I stayed
Uncle Willy's & Auntie Marilyn's
After a GREAT night's sleep was all charged up and on my way to Medicine Hat. I knew Willy & Marilyn weren't going to home til later that day so took my time and took in the sights...unfortunately all the highway pics look exactly the same! Long straight roads, vast blue skys with puffy little clouds. Very picturesce but not much in the way of touristy things to see.
I went to the Tourist Info Centre in Medicine Hat and got a map and some info on the city. First I went to the largest TeePee in the world and read about the area history. Then I headed down to the Historic Clay District which was more difficult to find because some of the roads were closed as this area is down in the valley and was hit by the floods.
Medalta Potteries was open and I checked out their museum
After that I drove down to the Historic Downtown but being Sunday night, it was pretty dead. Then I just drove aimlessly around and got high enough to take a picture of the church downtown. You can really see how lush it is - very nice.
It was about 5pm when I called Uncle Willy and I was just in time for dinner!! I hadn't seen Uncle Willy, Auntie Marilyn for a few years and Tracee even longer. We had a greatvisit and they must know me well cause the drinks kept coming. Was hoping to see Trevor but he had been out of town all weekend. Next time!
