On Thursday morning, I rented a car (Chrysler Intrepid -- with a sun roof!) and headed for Lethbridge with L. We stopped at Strathmore for breakfast. Driving south from there, we ran into a fog bank that took 15 or 20 minutes to drive through. Visibility was down to 2 car lengths.

In Lethbridge, we took my Dad to lunch, and then to do grocery shopping and other errands. He can't drive now, so he can only get around by bus. He looks well, though. Better than last time we saw him, just after he had been in a car accident. We took him home for a nap, then got together later for dinner and watched a movie on TV.

Dad gave us his maple dining table and chairs, as he won't need them in the seniors lodge he is moving into. We took the legs off the table, and were able to fit it in the Chrysler's large trunk. We managed to fit two chairs in the back seat. We'll get the other chairs later.

We did some exploring by car while we were there, and found a park and a wildlife preserve that I didn't know about, on the west side. I will want to check out them out more closely in the summer.

I took a series of pictures of the Oldman River and coulees near Lethbridge, and made a panorama with Panorama Factory. It was a gloomy, overcast day, but you can view the results by clicking here.
