Our last weekend with Pat and Harry was a fun-filled adventurous 3 days away from
Calgary. We drove a couple hours northeast to a small town of Rosebud, where we had flown over in Harry’s plane a few days earlier. We played golf at the Akokiniiskway Golf Club, it was the Rosebud Valley’s original name meaning ” by the river of many roses”.
This 9-hole executive course has lush fairways and grass greens, meandering among the trees and along the Rosebud River, it was definitely a fun course to play. In the evening we enjoyed a spectacular show of the Wizard of Oz at the local theater. The next day we drove to Stettler, Alberta, Harry’s hometown. We had flown over Stettler in Harry’s plane to see his farm from the air. We were excited to ride on the Alberta Prairie Railway Excursions, a heritage railway originating in Stettler and runs between Stettler and Big Valley.
