Camping at Police Outpost

For our second camping trip of 2021, we headed to Police Outpost. Located in the Police Outpost Provincial Park, it’s right on the border with Montana, so quite a drive down south from Calgary. It’s a lovely small camp site with nicely shaded sites. The whole camp site is only one loop so not too... Continue Reading →

I’m so behind on sharing our camping stories and it seems a bit strange to be sharing these in the middle of winter, but I am dreaming of summer, and if you know how crazy the booking system is for camping in Canada, I’m sure you’re also starting to plan your summer camping trips already....

Magical Moraine Lake

I am very excited to share that we added a big tick to our Canadian bucket list recently with a trip to Moraine Lake.

Weekend drives in the Alberta Foothills

We love taking random drives in and around Calgary. We haven’t had the best of luck when it comes to seeing the Canadian wildlife on these drives, but the beautiful Alberta scenery never disappoints. It is so diverse, from the towering Rocky Mountains to the flat plains, and rolling farmlands, there is always a beautiful... Continue Reading →

Ice skating on Lake Louise

As we head into spring in Canada, I’ve been thinking back on all the wonderful adventures we enjoyed over the winter. With lockdowns and many things closed, we really had to make the most of the outdoors and the things we were allowed and able to do as a family. One thing we really enjoyed... Continue Reading →
