  Hi, Linda and Ed Bayly here.We are a retired couple in our late sixties. I was a performing arts centre manager and my wife was a legal secretary. Our house is in a quiet cul de sac. We are both non smokers. We are interested in visiting England in 2011 for a month or so. Open for other offers. We live in the nice, clean, safe city of Lethbridge, pop.82,000, two and a half hours south of Calgary . There is a university, a college, four theatres, twenty three movie screens, six public swimming pools, plus other sporting venues. There is horse racing all summer, and there are major shopping malls, many resturants and lounges, three golf courses within the city limits and six more just twenty minutes away by car. The Nika Yuka Japanese Garden with lovely water features is adjacent to Henderson Lake where there is fishing and boating. The Oldman River runs through the center of Lethbridge and the areas on each side of the river are designated a nature reserve where deer, beaver, muskrats, porcupines, pelicans and all manner of animals and birds are often seen. The Helen Schuler Nature Center along with Fort Whoop- up, a reconstruction of the fort used by the whisky traders in the early days, is also situated there. Lethbridge is the ideal base for a number of interesting and unique places to visit. South is the Montana, U.S. border, south west is Waterton Lakes National Park, right in the heart of the Rockies with bear, elk, deer, sheep and other animals a common sight and with lots to see and do. To the west is Fort Mcleod, home of the first Canadian Mountie force in this area then a little further west is the Head Smashed In Buffalo Jump,a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Blood and Peigan Indian Tribes perform their tribal ceremonies there on a regular basis. To the north is the town of Drumheller, with the Royal Tyrrell Museum, another World Heritage Site, devoted to the dinosaurs that roamed the region millions of years ago. To the north Calgary and Banff and Edmonton the capital of Alberta. There are bountiful fishing opportunities with stocked ponds in and around town plus mountain fishing and the Bow River which is a blue ribbon trout fishery. I am an avid fly fisherman and can supply more info. I also have a pontoon boat and a belly boat available for your use. OUR HOUSE - We have a "four level split" home. On the top floor, the master bedroom with king sized bed and an en- suite, second bedroom with queen bed, and the third bedroom with a single bed. There is a full bathroom on the same floor with bath and shower. On the ground floor there is a sitting room, dining room and kitchen. The kitchen is fully fitted with oven, freezer and fridge, microwave and dishwasher. The lower level has a family room with cable TV, video player, VCR and DVD with a large library of tapes. There is also an office with high speed internet available. A small toilet is also located on this level. A washer and dryer, large freezer and a shower and sauna, plus exercise equipment for your use is all locateed in the lowest level. At the rear of the house there is a large two level deck with patio furniture, a barbecue and a four person hot tub. We have two cars that could be available for exchange. A new Honda Accord and an older Toyota Camry, both automatic with a/c. If you are interested or require more information, please e-mail us. We always enjoy hearing from other people in different parts of the world. Thanks, Ed and Linda. Check out www.travelalberta.ca
