Good drive on the freeway all the way to Winnipeg. Only about 470 km today with a quick stop at the Manitoba Automobile museum where we ran into a Aussie who lives now in the local area.

Hotel was clean. AC units are kind of noisy and the bathroom is a little small but overall the hotel room was nice and had a bar fridge.

Our preteen daughter was very offended that hot chocolate was only available at breakfast whereas coffee and tea were always available.
