Prince of Wales Hotel, Waterton National Park, Canada

Prince of Wales Hotel, Waterton National Park, Canada

The Prince of Wales Hotel is located in Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta, Canada, overlooking Upper Waterton Lake, near the Canada-United States border. Constructed between 1926 and 1927, the hotel was built by the American Great Northern Railway to lure American tourists north of the border during the prohibition era. The hotel was named after the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII), in a transparent attempt to entice him to stay in the hotel on his 1927 Canadian tour, but the Prince stayed at a nearby ranch instead.

The Prince of Wales Hotel enjoys the distinction of being the sole establishment among Canada’s grand railway hotels to have been built by an American, as opposed to a Canadian, railway company. The hotel was designated a National Historic Site of Canada by the Canadian government in 1995.

Prince_of_Wales_Hotel_Waterton 2The Prince of Wales Hotel was built as an extension to the chain of hotels and chalets built and operated by the Great Northern Railway in Glacier National Park, Montana. Louis Hill, President of the Great Northern Railroad, picked the site for the hotel in 1912. It took until 1926 to get the land leased from the Canadian Government and construction began immediately thereafter.

When Mr. Hill decided to build the hotel, he planned for a building somewhat like the Many Glacier Hotel in Montana. The original plan called for a long three-storied, low roofed building with a central lobby and approximately 300 rooms. As the building progressed, Mr. Hill changed his mind several times so that some parts of the building had to be rebuilt four times. He wanted the building to resemble French or Swiss chalets.  Hill’s final vision stands today, a proud hotel overlooking the township of Waterton; complete with 86 rooms in seven-stories and crowned with a 30-foot bell tower.

All materials and supplies for the construction were shipped via railway to Hill Spring and then transported the last 25 miles by mule team. During construction the building crew faced numerous obstacles including a spring thaw that turned the 25 miles of road into a muddy quagmire and high winds that blew the building off-center twice. The fear of these high winds almost caused the project to be abandoned but construction finally proceeded and the building was completed and officially opened to the public on July 25, 1927.

Occasionally the building will sway slightly when the winds are heavy, but there is no danger because the building was constructed to withstand even the fiercest of gales. The building is anchored to its site by means of large cables installed from its loft, through the structure and into the ground itself.

The hotel is named after the Prince of Wales, the popular Prince Edward, who was later to become King Edward VIII. He was admired and adored worldwide, even after his abdication of the British Throne in 1936 when he chose to marry a commoner from America. The hotel was designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1992 with Plaque status granted in 1995 and was highlighted in the 2008 National Geographic™ Crown of the Continent Geotourism Map Guide.

The Prince of Wales Hotel is a smoke free, 7-story facility with designated outdoor smoking areas. Check-in time is after 3:00 p.m. and checkout time is 11:00 a.m. All rooms are accessed via stairs and are sold based on view or room size. An antique elevator is available for floors 2 through 4 and requires assistance to operate. There are no ADA-accessible rooms available at Prince of Wales Hotel. The self parking lot is located a short walk from the hotel.

Carnival Cruise With Teens

Article By:  Claudia Laroye

Our teenage son lobbied to choose our family’s vacation for this year’s spring break. He had two proposals: go on a cruise or visit the Caribbean. Since my husband and I loved our Alaskan cruise and we had always wanted to visit the Caribbean, our teen didn’t have to do too much convincing. Much to our son’s delight, we booked an Eastern Caribbean cruise with Carnival Cruise Lines for our family holiday. Here’s what to expect when you embark on a Carnival Cruise with teens.

Carnival Cruise with Teens

Fun ships, indeed!

Carnival Cruise has a reputation for fun and free-spirited adventures. Our ship departed Miami packed with families, college students and young people. It was a ‘carnival-like’ atmosphere, celebrating the Caribbean sun and spring break. It’s a popular cruise line with families, young adults, and the young at heart. They have FunPoints to collect, FunShops on board, and offer a Great Vacation Guarantee. Carnival is that sure you’ll have fun and enjoy your cruise holiday, and they really want you to come back again.

At Sea teen clubs

Our teenager was able to cut loose, relax, and socialize with the many other teens on board. As with other age groups, Carnival offers an activity club for teenagers – Club O2 – on all of their ships. For the 15-17 year old set, Club O2 is a teen-only hang out space; no adults allowed. It’s a great place for kids to break the ice and meet each other, without any parental pressure or interference. Parents have to sign a consent form to allow their teens to come and go as they please, but once they’re in the Club, you may not see them for several hours, or until the next morning.

There is a daily itinerary for Club O2, ranging from Karaoke and dance and trivia-themed parties to island excursions. Kids can join in as they wish; the structure is loose and just hanging out is encouraged. The Club was a hit with our teen, who met some great new friends with whom he spent time exploring the ship when they weren’t doing specific activities.

For the younger teen set (ages 12-14), there is the Circle C club. The C stands for ‘chill’ or ‘cool’ and the club includes activities such as dance and pizza parties, games, outdoor movies, and scavenger hunts. The Circle C is supervised by fun-loving counselors who want to ensure that the kids have an awesome time.

Teen-pleasing dining options abound aboard a Carnival ship

Teen-pleasing dining options

Teens will find plenty of totes tasty dining choices on board a Carnival ship. Our ship, the Carnival Liberty, boasted Guy’s Burger Joint (fabulous fries), the Blue Iguana Cantina (delish fish tacos), a 24-hour pizzeria (with surprisingly tasty pies), self-serve ice cream, a late-night deli, Cherry on Top candy store, daily buffets at breakfast and lunch, and several dining rooms for more formal or anytime dining. Our casually formal dinner time offered the chance to connect with our teen over a family meal together before he headed out for a night of fun and adventure.

Other Carnival fun for teens

Many Carnival ships have a wide variety of teen-friendly activities to pump up the fun. Our ship offered a water slide, while other ships have a more extensive Carnival Waterworks, such as the Speedway Splash on the Carnival Sunshine.

There Seaside Theatre is where to go to watch cartoons, classic TV shows plus comedies and action movies—complete with free popcorn and blankets. Or watch movies from the pool or one of two hot tubs in the middle of the ship!

The Punchliner Comedy Club offers a rotating roster of comics that perform several shows nightly, including at least one ‘family-friendly’ show in the early evening that teens would definitely enjoy. The big stage shows by on-board entertainers and special performers may also be a teen draw. Ours wasn’t keen on the musicals as much as he was spellbound by the hypnotist, who showed off his skills at getting people to do anything and everything.

Why cruise with teens

Traveling with teens presents challenges that are very different from when you traveled with little ones to grandma’s house. They like to eat a lot more (cha-ching), sleep in, share strong opinions, and can be…shall we say…surly and not the most talkative traveling companions. All-included food aboard a cruise ship presents a definite budget bonus to parents of teens. If you and your spouse and younger children want to sit by the pool or hit the breakfast buffet, you can sneak out of the stateroom without having to wake a cranky teen. The ability to split up and pursue varying activities and come together over a family meal in the evenings may prove a good way to keep the eye-rolling to a minimum too.

Teens are able to explore a contained environment while cruising. Our teen really enjoyed that sense of freedom, even to just eat pizza at midnight while trading jokes with friends (and keeping an eye out for young ladies too, I’m sure).

Traveling with happy teenagers is much preferred to the alternative; it’s worth the time and effort to work with them and plan out a holiday that will meet their needs, as much as your own. Who knows? Away from the pressures of school and work, a relaxed cruise vacation just might draw you and your teen closer together!

3 Steps to Forgiveness

3 steps to forgivenessKenneth Copeland

Spiritually speaking, unforgiveness is downright dangerous. It will make your spirit feeble and your prayers ineffective. It will pull the plug on your faith so completely that you won’t have enough power to move the mole hills in your life – much less the mountains.

Read Mark 11:22-25 and you’ll see why I say that. There you’ll find one of Jesus’ most powerful teachings on faith. He concludes that teaching with these words, “And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have aught against any….”

Notice He didn’t say, “When ye stand praying, try to forgive” or “When ye stand praying, forgive if you can.” He simply said, “Forgive.” Period.

Jesus made forgiveness a command. It would be unjust for Him to command us to do something we couldn’t do. So you can be sure it’s within your power to obey His command and forgive – no matter how badly you’ve been wronged.

Why then has it been so difficult for you to do so? Probably because you have fears that are holding you back. Most people don’t realize it, but unforgiveness is actually a form of fear. Quite often we don’t forgive because we’re afraid of getting hurt again. We’re afraid we’re never going to recover from the damage that person has done to our lives.

Step 1: Wash yourself in the Word. If you want to freely forgive, get rid of those fears. Cleanse yourself from them by the “washing of the water by the word” (Ephesians 5:26). Fill your mind and heart with promises of God that apply to your situation.

If your business has been threatened by this person, for example, meditate on the fact that no weapon formed against you will prosper (Isaiah 54:17), and rely on the fact that your God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19). Let the knowledge of the merciful, protective love of God cast out all your fears (see I John 4:18).

Step 2: Forgive by faith – not by feelings. Do it the same way you would receive healing or anything else by faith. First, make a quality decision. Determine that you’re going to do what God’s Word instructs – no matter what. You’re going to forgive.

Then, speak and act in accordance with that decision. Refuse to say anything negative about that person. Refuse to rehearse in your mind or with your mouth the hurt they have caused you. Instead, look for opportunities to bless that person both in word and in deed.

Step 3: Don’t be moved by what you feel. Forgiveness is an act of the will, not feelings. When lying symptoms of unforgiveness well up inside you, come against them in faith. Say, “Praise God, I have forgiven that person by an act of my will. In the Name of Jesus, I’m not moved by these feelings. They’ll just have to get in line. They’ll have to submit to the faith and the love of God that’s been shed abroad in my heart.”

If you’ll continue to do that, I can assure you from my own experience, your feelings will change. It may not happen overnight…but it will happen. One of these days, almost without thinking, you’ll throw your arms around that person, give them a big hug, and say, “I love you.” What’s more, you’ll mean it from the bottom of your heart.

Coastal Travel Vacations – The Right Legitimate Home Business

What makes the RIGHT legitimate home business?  You’ve decided there has to be a better way and you no long want to struggle pay check to pay check or have to tell your kids you can’t afford it or maybe one day. Now you know a legitimate home business is your only option.  How do you find that good one for you? What should you really be looking for? Today I’m hoping to cut through the hype and get down to the nitty-gritty.I.Vacation.4.A.Living.Ask.How

Three things are very important when considering a legitimate home business that can also be lucrative and help you reach your goals.  First of all, profit margin and value of product is important second longevity of the company, no company could exist a long term with out many satisfied clients and finally support structure of other people who have succeeded.  If you can locate all three you have found a legitimate home business and a way to develop an income stream to alleviate some of the stress and struggle caused my financial strain. That doesn’t guarantee success but it definitely puts you on the right track and one step ahead in the game of life.

First let’s talk about profit margin.  It is imperative that you can actually generate enough profit up front to be able to pay for any businessCV.AD.Capture.Page expenses and to pay your bills.  A lot of people look at MLM as a way to work from home and it may be or can but, my biggest issue is normally your income is supposedly “residual” but it almost always relies on other people to keep it coming in.  If you have a valuable product, it should be something that people will pay for but at the same time allowing you to attain income upfront and quickly depending on how YOU work not someone else.  It normally takes about as long to make a 100 dollar product sale as it does a 1,000 dollar product sale.  Which one most likely will pay you more?  Look for a product that is valuable and has a generous built-in profit margin upfront not just the back-end.

Second, look for a company product or service that has a track record.  Often times the hype is always stressing starting at ground floor opportunities or getting in at the beginning.  Most of that is exactly that hype and garbage.  You don’t want to put in tons of effort and build something incredible just for some fly by night operation to change the product, process or company you’ve invested so much time into.  Find a company that is well established 10 years or more at least but the longer the better.  If that company has helped others create a lucrative income and it’s lasted over a decade chances are it’s pretty dang legit.

Finally, every company that has a track record and has been around if, it’s possible to generate a lucrative income it should be possible to easily find others that have been able to succeed.  But look, do Google searches for those that have been abandoned or neglected.  While there will always be some bad apples and not one bad apple should represent a company.  You don’t want to work in a company or industry that only attracts bad apples and you certainly don’t want to connect with a bad apple.  One of the simplest ways to help you find a legitimate and lucrative home business and just seek referrals.  Everyone and everything has a reputation; learn that reputation.  Are they known for support, help and success.  Or what is the company or service you are looking at known for?  If there are a lot of clients, reps or employees you may not want to work with a company like that.

Work at Home with Coastal Travel Vacations

It should be easy to find a home business but you want to find the RIGHT legitimate home business for you.  So look for a valuable product that allows you to achieve good upfront profit not relying on someone else to achieve your income for you.  Your financial dreams should not hinge on what someone else does or doesn’t do. Remember every company is filtered by time.  IF it is legitimate and lucrative it takes time to develop a track record.  So look for companies and products that have been around for 10 years or more.  Then find the fruit of others that have done what you want to do.  What is their track record or experience?  Did they get the support and help they needed?  Does the company foster team work and help?  Are there people who help you when they don’t benefit directly?

Life is short and you don’t have time to wait.  Good Luck and God Bless!!
