Well I think we did it all in July this year!
But not to be outdone, August came in hard.
We just stayed home and were lazy on the long weekend. Unless you planned far ahead for a campsite you are typically out of luck.
I love music of any kind and outdoor concerts too. All summer I had intentions of going to Heritage Park in Stony Plain and taking in at least one of their events, and I finally made it. Emerson was with us for a sleep over and she almost willingly came with me. LOL Actually she was in favor and it was great event. We were fortunate to hear Bobby Wills. If the name is not familiar he is a country singer and my favorite song is Never Didn’t Love You.
We promised ourselves we would spend some of this Covid and can’t travel out of Canada time making an effort to see friends. So on Friday we headed to Suffern Lake Regional Park in Saskatchewan to visit Amanda and Rob at their cabin. My photos include a bag of wine and a charcuterie tray. so it’s not hard to decide what we did that night! We had a ton of laughs, met some of Rob’s crazy but lovey family, and headed out after breakfast t see my sister at her trailer, at another regional park called Glenburn. Saskatchewan has so many of these Regional Parks, some pretty small, but most just wonderful. They are more likely to have seasonal lots than we do in Alberta, which has it’s pros and cons I assume.
It was so great to visit Ginger and Ben and Alyssa, then we were surprised and so happy to see Leigha nd Aaron and their kids too! And my surprise guest was brother Terry! I had not seen Terry since mom’s memorial (he is her stepson, my half brother). That warrants a photo.
Next on our Saskatchewan tour was a stop at Pike Lake Provincial Park where we were meeting up with Larry. We had a blast! And part way through Kathy came to stay with us. We visited the Berry Barn, went on a distillery tour, tried to track down a couple of wineries, and Kathy and I went to Saskatoon and had supper with Ginger.
We also had an afternoon visit with Bree, and old friend from Tisdale days, and Greg, another old Tisdale bud.
It seemed like a pretty packed time, but when we realized we would almost be driving right past Walter and Pat who now live in Hanna, it was an easy choice to spend one more day and visit them! They treated us to dinner at the Hanna Inn, and we visited until it was late bedtime.
We were glad to be home for a few days, because at the end of the month we headed out to Abraham Lake again so I could attend a meeting at the Goldeye camp as part of my FCL duties. We extended that stay and took a day to visit Banff, as last time we tried that it was raining and crowded.
And that was an exhausting but glorious August!
