Brushing up against the wild, Banff Springs Hotel

mini banfferinas entertaining us outside our high tearoom

Susannah Wesley and Meredith Carruthers, ie Leisure Projects, produced a rather bizzare and wonderful little event at the worryingly opulent Banff Springs Hotel today. Corsages were worn, tea was served, biscuits nibbled, and then the entertainment appeared on the deck below. splendid. As it was my birthday, I was forced to drink a glass of champagne while watching it all scroll by.

In addition to our entertainment, we were presented with small embossed booklets which included the Leisure Girls dressed in Hudson Bay coats looking arther 1940's as they pointed at mountains and such. the booklets also contained an assortment of bizzare tourisim shots taken within Banff over the centuries....
