 After the reception we walked around Douglas park a bit and up to Wascana Hill. It's not a huge hill, but you actually get a pretty nice view of the park and the city from the top. After that that, we settled into our lodgings; and then went to the reception, where we ate entirely too much food. After the reception we walked around Douglas park a bit and up to Wascana Hill.

All the church schedules were really wacky, so we walked around a little bit, visited the World Largest Paperclip, before the first service started. We went to the People'​s Church first, where people sung the first few lines of every song over and over and over and over ... and over again, met some relatives or something, and then went to the Baptist Church where they were having a combined service of almost all the other churches in Kipling. That service was kind of interesting,​ the average age was probably close to 60. We met another relative there.

 +After church, we went to the Canada Day festivities at the ball parks on the south side of town. There was a petting zoo there, which Dorothy enjoyed.

 +===== Driving back ===== 
 + 
 +Unfortunately,​ the way back was a little more interesting. We bailed on our plans to hike in Canmore because the weather was bad and just went home instead. When we arrived in Roger'​s Pass the traffic was lined up for serveral kilometers (there had been a vehicle collision). We weren'​t sure what the deal was, so we tried to find a traffic station on the radio. As it turns out, the only radio station available in Rogers Pass is an Indian music station, so we just listened to that instead.

 +On our way through Sicamous, we stopped at D Dutchman Dairy and the adjacent Fruit World for ice cream and fruit. At Fruit World, Dorothy showed me a bar of soap. I smelled it and it smelled like someone had mixed up soap and thyme. Dorthy told me to look at the label: Sexy Beast. Apparently "sexy beast" smells like thyme.
