You knew it was just a matter of time before Phoebe would leave her nest at Seba Beach and venture out to explore new lands. For this trip the new land was Saskatchewan, and for all who are either from there (most of Edmonton) or have crossed the border it is a very different world.
To start it is flat, the colours of yellow canola fields glisten in the sun, the big sky with The Simpsons-styles fluffy clouds in the shapes of birds and dinosaurs.
And don’t forget the fandemonium of the Saskatchewan Rough Riders and “Rider Pride.” Oh and of course PIL beer.
What you might not know is that lakes and rivers cover more than 12% of Saskatchewan. In fact there are over 100,000 lakes and rivers in Northern Saskatchewan alone. 100,000! We stayed on Emma Lake.
And we also took a day trip to Waskesui Lake in the town of Waskesui—Prince Albert National Park. So we have more than 99,990 lakes and rivers to go! Yikes!
Here’s what we learned about Phoebe on the trip:
Phoebe is most happy when she has a place to head to. And she will be happy to know (we haven’t told her yet) that she is heading to two more campsites in the coming month. She can do what she does best—come along for the ride and be a place to call home when we’re done exploring for the day.
We are excited to say that the next two trips include our tails, Phin and Westley. They stayed home this round to look after the house with our dog sitter but they are ready for our next adventures!
Here are some more photos of our excellent week in Saskatchewan with family
Mellissa & James live in Edmonton, Alberta and enjoy exploring. Currently our Airstream is parked at a seasonal site about an hour from our home.
