The drive from Waterton Lakes to Red Deer was long…almost too long, but not quite. Our little one did great on the drive thanks to my old iPhone which now serves as a gaming station!
It took about 5 hours with the RV towing the toad and we were relieved to get here. We did enjoy passing through Calgary again and reminisced about the Stampede, the parade and Canada 150 year celebration…we felt like we were not such rookies here anymore as we can get around Calgary pretty well now and it’s the largest city in Alberta.
Although it’s a quick stay in Red Deer we like the feel of this city and are a little bummed to be leaving so quickly. Even the WiFi is great so that’s a plus!
Here’s pulling into Westerner RV park which is located near the southern part of the city.
Spot 85! This park is shaded, clean, and has a great playground so we’re all happy here.
The overall temperature is much more bearable here, being that it’s so far north…it’s been a perfect 75 all day so we don’t need to run the air conditioning.
We haven’t done much except food shop at Sobeys, disc golf, and work…But! Anikka and I finally got to do something REALLY fun here…. swim at an aquatic centre.
It’s called the Colicutt Centre, and is a multi functional sports center complete with full gym, basketball, full gymnasium, and pool area.
It was huge inside!! But I guess it’s more busy in winter when it’s dead ass cold.
This place has a full wave pool, toddler water playground, lazy river, bubble zone, water fountain, and 2 giant hot tubs!
One of the best things about Canada is places never really get as busy as in the states…we feel like we get to do more here with less crowds.
We swam almost 2 hours!!
A blurry panorama…
Indoor gymnasium…packed with teenagers..
They even had an amazing toddler playground but was too tired after the swimming…
Off to Edmonton tomorrow!!
