Jul 13, 2018 - Time Out for a Reunion

May was beautiful. June was unsettled and so far July has been the same! It's nice for the garden because at least once a week it gets a really good soak. Everything is growing like crazy, including the weeds. The clover we planted instead of grass has grown quite well but the yellow clover that is growing amongst the white clover is a real pain. Maureen and Kelly have been over the patch several times pulling the nasty yellow stuff out. All the families are growing up - geese, ducks, eagles. It appears that all 30 goslings survived. The...

Jun 2, 2017 - Estevan Walmart

Yes you are reading it right. We have crossed another item off of our bucket list. Stayed at a Walmart. Looked for a casino somewhere with no luck so we spent the night here. Lots of room, quiet but no TV or internet so does warrant a 5 star rating. We did another 300 plus miles today but decided not to press on for Minot and had an early nite. Landscape has changed after Saskatoon with a bit more roll to the highways and a whole lot of oil/gas pumps visible in the fields. Wind has also increased, almost like PEI but a benefit is that there...

Listened to audio books and Canadian talk radio. I heard a Canadian tire commercial that made me laugh out loud. The announcer says something like, “We test all season tires so you don’t have to." In the background of the commercial, you...

Jun 26, 2014 - Day 9 We're in!

Oh my goodness, let me just say that some of the things we had read about getting through customs was a little nerve-wracking. I had a huge list of just about everything we had in our possession and were aware that they could come in and look at/through anything they wanted. We were shocked when the entire process took about 15 mins, 14 of those was Phil standing in a line inside the building showing the paperwork for the shotgun. They asked us a few questions, like how long we'd be in Canada, our final destination (Alaska) and if we were...

Jul 4, 2007 - Estevan, Saskatchewan - Coal, Power Stations and Sunshine

Estevan in South East Saskatchewan is located just 16km (10 miles) from the Canadian/US border. It is called the Sunshine Capital of Saskatchewan, as it averages more hours of sunshine per year than any other city in Saskatchewan. It is also the energy capital of the province as it has two coal fired power stations that generate 2 million megawatt hours of energy annually. This is 65% of the provinces energy needs. To feed the power stations the area around Estevan is rich in coal and is also famed for having the largest draglines in North...
