Known as the million dollar view

we did find this view breathtaking.

Taken at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel

This was the view from the staff quarters,

until a remodelling ‘fixed’ that.

We did not get to fly in this plane…

but it was at our accommodation the night before…


our Muddy River Safari in Canada.

After a hearty breakfast it was all aboard.

We won’t forget this trip in a hurry as it was here while having

our life jackets fitted that MGW discovered a familiar face doing the fitting. 

A former pupil at the school where she works.

A day or two later we were off on an evening hayride at Banff.

Followed by a more comfortable mode of transport for two days. 

Who has never ever wanted to drive a train??  🙂

Known as the ‘million dollar view’

when Banff Springs Hotel

was constructed the kitchen had this view.

During renovations the kitchen was moved

and now guests and visitors are able

to take in this stunning view.

At least that is the story we were told 🙂

October 2018 Photography Inspirations: Room-with-a-View

Although most of these photos are from

Vancouver Island we found plenty

of moving water in Canada.

Fountain outside Legislative Assembly Building,

Victoria, Vancouver Island.

 

This snail fountain can be found just inside

the Butchart Gardens gate.

Jumping to Alberta and Banff’s

Cascade Gardens provides this waterfall.

Known for its murals, Chemainus can be

discovered on Vancouver Island.

Finally, possibly my favourite Canadian fountain is the

Ross Fountain in the Butchart Gardens,

Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

Finally, maybe a slightly different take on moving water.

We had to cross what seemed to be a fairly narrow path

each time we entered/exited our hotel in Victoria, BC.

The Parkside has some huge fish in this pond.
