I have a lake named after me

As a kid I always wanted something with my name on it.
I mean, everyone could get a mug, or a little name tag for their door,
even a key chain.

I couldn't even find a key chain with my name on it.

With the internet, I was able to Google "Lottie".

There it was, Lottie Lake.

It was on our way and my husband located it and took us for a little
detour to my lake.

Welcome everyone, to Lottie Lake, Alberta Canada.

Storms over the Prairies

Monday afternoon we crossed from
Manitoba to Saskatchewan.

If you like weather
we had some great stuff.

I hope you like these photos.

Winnipeg and Beyond

We toured the area near Altona and Winkler Manitoba today.

Beautiful, clean and friendly towns.
Being Sunday morning also every quiet.
Everyone was at church.

I wanted to visit Altona because last weekend
they had their annual Sunflower Festival which 
we missed because, well, we were still moving.

But here we were today.

Nearby there was a wind farm
with maybe 50 of these beautiful windmills.

So kinetic and lovely.

Our new wheels

Then we went to the most famous intersection in Canada
(maybe next to Yonge and Bloor).

Tomorrow .....
we are "Running Back to Saskatoon".

We've reached the centre of Canada

August 3rd we travelled from
Thunder Bay, ON to Winnipeg, MB.

We had wanted to stay in Kenora, ON
(home of the Kenora fedora and Kenora dinner jacket)
was booked solid, so we travelled the extra two hours
to Winnipeg.
After three day of trees, rocks and lakes
it was a shock to see the
flat flatness, of the flatness
which is Manitoba.

It is seriously flat here folks.
The clouds were stunning,
and the road was/is straight and flat.

Murray is loving every minute of this drive.
That is just another reason why he is the best.

North Shore of Lake Superior - #relocating

Today we travelled from Sault Ste Marie 
to Thunder Bay.
This involved travelling along the north and eastern shore of 
"The Great Lake known as Gitchigoomie" aka Lake Superior.

As you can see it rain.
It rain hard, then it drizzled
then a light shower.
It rained a little of everything.

It was still beautiful.

The sun did shine from time to time and Moose and his Dad enjoyed the moments provided.

Tomorrow we head to northwest Ontario where the time changes
and we get to model
our Kenora fedoras and dinner jackets (hehehehe)

We've done it - we're moving to B.C. - North Shore

We're packed and ready to go

It's been awhile since I post to this blog.
We've been incredibly busy purging and packing.
and packing and purging - 
and purging- 
and purging.

It has been physically, and emotionally draining.

Many tears have been shed but
we have packed the pod and it is on the road.

Even our Moose and sad to be leaving our home
in search of our new abode.

I'll be posting our travels west
during the days and weeks to come.
