Grass Fire

We went to Calgary last weekend to have dinner at a fabulous restaurant, and to see Feist in concert. We went with Carly & Jay, and stayed overnight. It was great. The restaurant was definitely one of the best we've been to since moving to AB. It's called the River Cafe, and it's on Prince's Island. The setting is as beautiful as the food served. Check it out here:

The concert was fun. Feist has a great voice. Interestingly, the other 3 did not enjoy it as much as I did. I agree that the venue was completely wrong, but I enjoyed the stage show. John, Carly & Jay didn't enjoy it as much. I think it appealed to my crafty side.

Before we left we took Molly for a walk in the coulees. She stayed with a very nice couple, whose biggest concern was that she slept so much!

There was a grass fire a couple of weeks ago. You can see the big black area across the river. The grass fires here are a real concern, as they start and spread so quickly. The fire previous to this one almost destroyed a condo development. The fire dept had to run their hoses through people's condos in order to fight the fire. It was quite a spectacle. It has also been fairly windy lately, which is why Molly's hair is blowing.
