This morning started early again, the fresh air seems to do that to you. We use the cook stove to cook breakfast on this morning, instead of over the open fire. Bacon and eggs plus Jane had a coffee and I had a tea to drink. The morning was mostly about just relaxing. Just after noon we walked up to the office and paid for our two nights stay. The owners daughter was just getting out of bed. She graduated from grade 12 and was out quite late at her grad party. I understand. When we left the office we did another tour around the...

Jul 25, 2010 - the Manitoba Mystique

You’re going where? Tell someone in Canada that you’re going to Manitoba and you get the same reaction you get in the States if you tell someone you’re going to North Dakota. They look at you with mild curiosity and ask “Do you have relatives there?” As if that were the only reason anyone would go to Manitoba. It’s strange because Canadians often drive across their own country and it you want to get from coast to coast in Canada you’re going to have to go through Manitoba sometime. It sits smack in the middle of the country and you can’t...

Jul 20, 2010 - Wild Oak Campgrounds - Richer, Manitoba

Here it is a Friday evening, July 17Th and not a thing to do. Just on the spur of the moment, I looked on the internet for local camping sites, made a few phone calls then headed out the door for the Wild Oak Campgrounds which is located a few kilometers North of Richer, Manitoba. Approximate 1.5 hour drive from my place. I arrived there at approximately 8 PM. By then it was full with only the overflow area set up to take campers of my size. I understand from other campers that the campgrounds was once a gravel pit. The owners purchased the...
