Windy, windy, windy, chilly drive today. Drove 188 miles to Calgary, Alberta. Our destination was another Moose Lodge. Well guess what, the building had been taken over by a church group and they don't allow RV parking. The hookups had been removed. Sheesh!

Our alternate choice is a Harvest Host participant. The Aero Space Museum of Calgary. It is dry camping, but free. It is on the Calgary International Airport property so it is a little noisy, but not too bad.

I know we just visited a similar Air & Space museum in Minot, ND, but this had several very cool planes. We really are not airplane fanatic 's, we just enjoy all kinds of museums. The charge was C$7.00 per person for Seniors.

We used Calgary to run errands. Costco to have JC hearing aids repaired. Walmart for various shopping needs. A parts stores to replace our radiator cap for the coach.

We decided to check out the Heritage Museum Village. A little pricey at C$25 per person + Tax, but glad we did. All the staff were in costume and did a great job 'living the life' of the village as it was in the late 1800's. The homestead kitchen's were active with cooking and baking. Health laws prevented the goods being offered to visitors. So the yummy looking breads and cakes could only be consumed by the staff. It was a very chilly day, so all the homes had the cooking stove, fireplaces and heating stoves lit. Very welcome as we toured from place to place.

In a few years we will visit Calgary to visit what we missed, the stampede and visit Jasper.
