Jun 25, 2018 - Prince Albert

No tennis on TV this week so I can get on with what I’m supposed to be doing. Wimbledon next week though. When the first Europeans arrived here in 1866, the Cree name for the area was Kistahpinanihk so it’s no wonder they changed it to a more manageable name after you know who, Queen Victoria’s husband. The town which is situated on the North Saskatchewan River was originally a Cree Presbyterian mission then the abundance of fresh water, timber & fertile land drew settlers & farmers. Through the years it’s been a Hudson’s Bay post, an...

Jun 24, 2018 - Flin Flon to Prince Albert

Flin Flon is right on the Saskatchewan border so the first thing I did this morning was gain an hour. Manitoba & Saskatchewan are in the same time zone but for some unknown reason, Saskatchewan doesn’t do daylight savings. I didn’t do much else but drive today. There aren’t any towns between Flin Flon & Prince Albert with long stretches without any services at all – no decent campgrounds either so I kept going. It was raining when I got here which made things hard although the sun was shining by the time I finished talking to the very...

May 28, 2016 - Day 3 and all is well

I forgot to mention how beautiful the Coquihalla is in the spring with all the lush green new growth and those lovely hardy little wildflowers that appear in the cracks of the blasted rock walls. The waterfalls are at their maximum and spraying just like a bride's veil. Eagles, ospreys and hawks soaring overhead and masses of wild roses along the highway.It got cloudy in Clearwater and we did not see the mountains along the way to Jasper until near the town. What we did see was splendid. Remains of the great upheavals that the earth endured...

May 18, 2008 - AAC (Agility) Regionals, Prince Albert, SK

Yaaaaaay Midas! He and I qualified to go to AAC Nationals with total points of 381. 350 is the qualifying level. Midas, who is almost 10 years old, came out of retirement and ran his little legs off to achieve this memorable milestone. We are so proud of our little man. He’s really eager to run these days and wasn’t at all happy to be left behind when the other two were out running courses and earning praise and treats so we let him run a few times each day in the last few trials we’ve entered. I wasn’t sure he was up to doing three...

Sep 8, 2007 - Day 1 - Prince Albert AAC Agility Trial

We had a great day today playing agility with our three cairns and visiting with our friends in the agility community. We didn't enter the Gambler's runs, but Gino and Reba each made three standard runs, with Midas making two. The really big news was Fran and Reba's first run which was clean and well under standard course time - earning Reba the Agility Dog of Canada (ADC-S)title! They've worked hard toward this goal and it was sure nice to see them achieve it. Midas came VERY close to achieving the Advanced Agility Dog of Canada title but...

May 25, 2007 - Prince Albert, Saskatchewan

It's another day for driving our new northern route. We are still on the prairie and every small town we go through has a grain elevator. It's a banner day for roadside giants! We stop in Quill for coffee and a picture with their Canada Goose. In Watson, The Home of The Original Santa Claus Day, we find Santa. Santa Claus Day is the day Santa arrives in town in early December to kick off the Christmas holidays. Shortly after we find tire man. Three in a row must be a record. We stop midday hoping to fish but we are told that the lakes in...
