Banff

While in Alberta, we all went out to Banff National Park to the Banff Springs Hotel to enjoy their brunch buffet.

The hotel was originally built by CP Rail, and is an elegant landmark in the midst of the mountains.

Small touches around the grounds attest to its history and days of yore:

We’d never been inside the hotel before, and stood in awe at the doorway to the dining room:

We thought we’d been transported to a cruise ship!   Our table was beside a large window with a fabulous view:367

And the food, oh the food – more than we could ever even begin to taste.  From scrambled eggs to eggs benedict (with ham or salmon), from bacon to mussels and oysters, veggies, salads,371

and of course sweets:

It was a good think we hadn’t eaten much breakfast before our 1:00 brunch! 

It was a fabulous day!  Happy dining!             Blessings, Peg
