Friday Finds

Starts with L

The first will be the same, except we’ll work our way through the alphabet. The second and third will be different each time.
Hosted by Friday Finds and this is V4 or round 4!!!

Also playing along at ABC Wednesday

Eh to Zed

For this round of the alphabet I am going to celebrate Canada's 150 birthday by showcasing towns across the county.
To date I've been in the Maritimes and Ontario with my letters. Now we've gone out west.

Lake Louise - double L! Out west in Alberta.

Lake Louise was named after the Princess Louise Caroline Alberta (1848–1939), the fourth daughter of Queen Victoria, and the wife of John Campbell, the 9th Duke of Argyll, who was the Governor General of Canada from 1878 to 1883.

The hamlet was originally called Laggan, and was a station along the Canadian Pacific Railway route. It was built in 1890.

LANDSCAPE - WOW we are on a road trip and have so many landscape photos this will be hard.
Somewhere in Wyoming

KEY - we visited Craigdarroch Castle in Victoria BC this week.
I noticed that this manniquin had a chatelaine on her.

chat·e·laine  noun  dated
a woman in charge of a large house.
a set of short chains attached to a woman's belt, used for carrying keys or other items.


  1. Lake Louise is one of those magical parts of this country.

  2. I know I don't comment every day, but I'm loving the photos from your travels.

  3. great post....I would love to visit Canada one day....Lake Louise is on the wish list.

  4. Very nice travel post today. Enjoy, the one you are on now !!! Mrs. Jim has been to Lake Louise, spending her spare time while our daughter was on a business trip working. Wyoming doesn't have too much to offer for me except Yellowstone National Park. I've been there three times.

  5. Thanks so much for sharing photos of your beautiful Canada. We have made two road trips into the beautiful land. Interesting about the key.

  6. Lake Louise looks a wonderful place to visit. Interesting about the chatelaine. Have a great weekend.

  7. Lovely shots from Lake Louise. Louise is also my middle name. :) Great catch on noting the chatelaine! An excellent interpretation for key!
