Chuck Wagon Cafe in Turner Valley

As today is a public holiday in Alberta, we decided to take a drive down to Turner Valley, and the Chuck Wagon Cafe was the perfect spot to stop for lunch. We have heard a lot about it, and we can safely say, we'll be back.

Jan had Huevos Rancheros which was very tasty and I had the most delicious burger.

As we were eating, we saw a really cute red VW Beetle drive past the window. Later, we were fortunate enough to see it parked around the corner so we managed to get these pictures - we so love this car with its wind up key!

After lunch we decided to drive on a bit further into Kananaskis.  Driving closer to the mountains from the sunny, snow-free roads of Turner Valley, it felt like we were passing through the seasons at pace and so few miles from where we had started our drive, we were surprised to see so much snow up there.

All in all, it was a lovely, relaxing day off.
