Datecation in Edmonton

So I've changed my blog up a bit because of work load and time commitment I wasn't able to fulfill my intended daily blogging. But I will still continue to post photos of my lovely wife. I was away for a considerable amount of time so Lyss and I decided it to get away ourselves to get some US time in. And we had a blast. The following shots are from our weekend away.

Varscona Hotel
After shopping at West Ed we checked into our hotel on Whyte Ave

Nokomis Clothing
This shot is of the front entrance of the building where Nokomis Clothing is on Whyte Ave. It is a cool store and it has a safe so that makes it cooler.

After traversing the shops and art walk that was happening on Whyte Ave we went back to our hotel for a complimentary wine tasting.

Even though she looked soo great, Lyss wasn't feeling her outfit for our night out.

One last mirror check and photo sesh before heading out.

We had a lengthy walk to the restaurant so we were thankful the weather was so great.

Culina Mill CreekWe ate at Culina which is located just off the corner of 99 street and 89 avenue. I could say that it was good, but I will just show you. It was delicious though.

We started with Fried Calamari in sweet coconut curry sauce.

Lyss had PHYLLO WRAPPED GOAT CHEESE and chana dahl with tomato chutney and sauteed green beans for her entree.

And I had the BROME LAKE DUCK BREAST on roasted local potatoes in a white balsamic and cherry reduction.

Some shots on our walk back to the hotel.

Art Gallery of AlbertaThe next day we went downtown to check out the new Art Gallery of Alberta designed by Randall Stout Architects, Inc.. We didn't have enough time to go to any exhibits, but the building is definitely worth checking out.

Can't wait for our next datecation. Maybe small town Alberta next. Any suggestions?
