Where I stayed
Ont, Pither`s Point Campground
Pither`s Point Campground
Made a detour along the Trans Canada highway to stop at Falcon Lake, MB, where Gord`s parents had a cabin for many, many years. Many memories stopping at the lake. The fall colours here and along the way have been amazing. Also stopped in Vermillion Bay, Ont., to visit the Chandlers, friends from Swan River. Lloyd used to teach with Gord in Swan River. It was sure nice to catch up with them and renew the friendship. More wine….just about time for an intervention!!!! Thanks Lloyd & Anita for letting us park on your lawn!!!
Fort Frances was where I was born and raised and I hadn`t been back there for many years. The town has grown, but the paper mill is still there….still stinky as ever. Main reason for this stop was to see where my Dad was buried. When he died in 1995 it was a bit of a mess as he had a ``witchy common-law`` lady in his life
Visited with another old high school friend, Sheila, there. This journey across the prairies has been one of those ``bucket list`` things, cuz you never know what the future may hold. Special thanks to everyone for the use of their washers & dryers and the great hospitality and all the memories.
