It’s hard to keep the blog going having been home for a few months now – but here we go.
The park staff had told us the easy way was to follow the fence, so that’s what we did. A big surprise awaited us as we crested a hill.
We could feel the bounces of these two when we startled each other.
It was time to move on and we had to figure out a way to dump the black water tank without damaging the threads. Linda suggested using the bottom of the screw on wine glasses. I pulled them apart and realized they were too big. Frustrated, I sat back and moved the waterproof camera. Realizing that the tripod mount threads might work, I tried that and behold! It worked!
We went to a beautiful park in Manitoba called Turtle Mountain.
What a beautiful park, we’ll definitely have to go back. There was a fun fitness trail by the lake. We only walked the trail but Linda and I tried some of the stations.
These stations reminded me of some of the stations somewhere else that I cannot remember.
We had the opportunity to stay at Turtle Mountain for a couple of nights but a ranger somewhere told us about a place on the Manitoba border, thus, we started to head that way. In hindsight we should have stayed.
We found Woodlawn Park (an easy place to stop late in the evening…a little crowded for us) when we went to Daybreak Mills to pick up some einkorn wheat. This is the original wheat and only has 14 chromosomes. As I love making bread, this is a better choice and Daybreak Mills is a great place to get the wheat or even the flour. They are wonderful to deal with as well.
As we drove to White Hawk Lake we stopped in a lovely town called Baldur. They had the nicest public bathrooms we’d ever seen.
We kept moving towards the Ontario border and West Hawk Lake.
We made it to West Hawk Lake but the park was closing as we went in and the gate person told us to find a site and pay for it in the morning. We went looking and found lots of sites that were too close together and had lots of people.
We found this one site…fairly secluded but no sun. We were only going to be there one night, and we could easily survive that.
It was a nice park and in the summertime I can see it being great fun for kids.
We woke up early enough to go and check out the park and the lake.
It’s a pretty place and we could easily stop there off season…we move onto Ontario.
