Plantation life: 1982 pics, round 2

According to my dad, these were taken on my 3rd b-day. One of these pics may even contain the rare shot of me smiling. Scandalous.

These are scans of transparency slides that pater’s been sending over. Yes, my dad still keeps hundred of transparencies.

Banff/Jasper trip 9: Bankhead

Corene had been going through severe dog-withdrawal the whole week, so by this point she was basically pouncing on any dog available to give them scratches and belly-rubs.

Also by this point, we were looking for Bankhead, which led to a few lovely sights but also required quite a bit of hunting.
