Where I stayed
Went into the centre at 9:45am ish and I was the first customer of the day! Walked through the museum, watched a film then the bus came to drive me down to the fort. We couldn't go to the site of the massacre cause of the rain/condition of the road. No worries cause me being the only guest, I had a Fort Walsh NWMP guide all to myself. Mario gave me a tour and the history of the fort. It was pretty interesting and I got to see where Sylvain was arrested and put on trial (which they do when they are busier).
When I left, there was only 2 more cars other than mine
I hit the Number #1 again and headed to Swift Current. Rolled into here 4pmish so grabbed a campsite for the night at Trail Campground. Was able to do some laundry and update my blog while waiting! Right now i'm charging my camera too. Well...I am sitting in the laundry room, haha. Everyone here is really nice. The ground is quite soft (muddy) so will sleep in the car again - actually was surprisingly comfy. The wind is howling with thunder and lightening so thinking it's gonna pour again tonight.
Well, it's 8:30pm, time to have a drink and read for a bit.
