I saw this paddle steamer on Glenmore Reservoir this afternoon. It is part of Heritage Park, which I've never visited in all my time in Calgary. I should make a point of going there sometime this summer. We were on a hiking trail beside the reservoir, searching for a few geocaches, when we saw the boat. Hot day. Nice view of the Rocky Mountains in the distance.

On Friday, I was up on Nose Hill again. One of my geocaches, which I thought had gone missing, was found not far from where it was supposed to be. I went up to check on it and put it back in its original location. That's the third time this spring I've been up on that hill to do maintenance on a geocache. Each time involves bus rides, a long uphill walk, and takes 2 or 3 hours of my time. Oh well.

I've been reading Wolf Hall. It took me months to get a copy from the library. Very popular book and a long waiting list. It was well worth the wait, though. It's a historical novel about Thomas Cromwell during the period when Henry VIII wanted to have his marriage annulled so he could marry Anne Boleyn.

Summer begins tomorrow. Our spring has been cold and wet, for the most part, but it is finally starting to feel like summer.
