Well this is a very pleasant surprise for me. I've only ever visited Saskatchewan when they're hip-deep in snow in the middle of a deep freeze (like last time) or melting from the heat. I tend to be here at Christmas or in August. But the weather is awesome right now. Warm, but not scorching, and the grass is green, not brown. I like it.
And how Canadian of me to talk about the weather, eh?
So we're back at my aunt and uncle's farm. We'd hoped to get down to Regina, but discovered that there's a bus to Regina from Winnipeg, and a bus to Saskatoon from Winnipeg, and nothing in between. At least nothing that our Canada Pass is valid for, and we're running out of money. Fear not, Regina, I smell pick-ups in the future, so we'll make it down your way someday. Besides, I really want to get an interview with Brent Butt. (Heh, might not have to wait, I just noticed he's going on tour this fall http://www.brentbutt.com/brnews.htm )
Anyway, I'm getting the opportunity to take the same shots I did before in a completely different season. And we headed out to North Battleford for a day to visit some more family. And cause we actually had a car to use, I took some of the back roads back to Saskatoon. Neil’s never been out here before, so it’s a bit of a treat experiencing it all through him. Saskatchewan has always felt a bit like a second home, and now I get to see it like it’s new. And the change in weather helps.
