Diana and I had Christmas eve dinner at the hotel, different than the traditional Canadian dinner but still okay. We had beef wrapped around pork, carrots, green beans and cheese along with a baked potato, kiwi, and a salad that contained red grapes, broccoli, mayo, nuts, bacon bits and celery. For dessert they served a brick of bread pudding and a slab of something that really was flavourless.
The following pictures are of the vegetation in the hotel courtyard and are dedicated to the memory of my sister, Roxanne who passed away earlier this year. She was a devoted gardener who would have enjoyed the photo's of the wide variety of flowers, plants and vegetation we have seen on this trip.
