I was an hour early for the bus this morning. Just in case the same travellers were there again...
AND IT WAS SNOWING! Large, fluffy snowflakes that melted on the road but built up a gentle dusting on the trees and rooftops. Real Christmas card stuff.

As it happened, there were a total of eight of us in a full-sized deluxe coach with another middle-aged, ski-mad Englishman for a driver. We toured the Yoho National Park (white), couldn't see the Spiral Tunnels from the road (closed due to snow), visited Emerald Lake (frozen white) and stopped at Lake Louise ski resort for a hot chocolate (brown and white).

A lunch time check-in at the Lake Louise hotel has left me all afternoon to luxuriate in my room (another king-size bed and working internet connection) before exploring the hotel. Certainly not going outside... The gortex japara I brought as a raincoat would keep my top half dry and warm but I certainly didn't equip myself for walking in a foot of snow!

Hi Jenny
Finally worked out how to read your very amusing and clever travel diary - you're quite the travel guru, it's like tuning in to the latest Getaway program!

We have no news as exciting as yours but I can report that we have just had our weekend with Rohan. He arrived after some initial confusion at about 7pm on Saturday. Ollie of course was very pleased to see him and proceeded to show off the latest musical intrument a Hammond organ circa 1970. Rohan looked well and seemed to enjoy the roast chicken dinner followed by my famous chocolate self saucing pudding for dessert!

On Sunday, we called into Scotch College to try and track down Rohan's school shoes left behind the previous day after the soccer match and then popped into Camberwell market to check out the the layout before we become a stall holder ourselves this Sunday! Amazing how much junk seems to be another mans treasure - hopefully we will come home with less than we start with.

No doubt hear more from Rohan about his weekend at some point.

Anyway, have fun and keep the updates comimg! Keep warm!

Hi hi Jenny
Yep just poured in Melbourne,well, at least by drought standards...maybe 12mmm...hmmm, none in the catchment apparently.

Went driving with Nick yesterday, Sunday our time. Hilary called asked Nick to come over to a school fete that she and Rohan were going to. Nick couldn't go. With his social commitments, Showtime and work at Ray's, it's booking an audience with the Prime Minister.

Lovely getting your news. I just love train trips...well, I would like that one anyway.

Oh, and Nick said that the Bush residence was looking like a new pin [take that whichever way you like]! We were laying bets as to how long it would stay that way. Still I bet it will be spotless when you get back...

Love from
