The Navigator set a new standard. She booked round-trip air to Calgary, rented a car for 12 days, reserved rooms in Banff and Jasper and we drove through the beautiful awe inspiring Canadian Rockies. We then headed southwest to Lake Okanagan, British Columbia, for three days of, you guessed it, wine tasting. All trips should have some sort of a wine theme. However, the trip was marred on our return flight. Our plane flew over the wildfires of Napa and Sonoma. We witnessed white smoke billowing up from the orange-red flames of the fires spread as far as we could see. As I write this, the fires are not fully contained but there is hope for rain. If you would like to help the evacuees here are two to websites to consider.
