Our first trip after we moved to Canada in 2008, about three weeks in, was to Greenwater Lake. We had just bought our first car here and were still quite oblivious of the dangers of prairie winters! But it was a beautiful trip that we’ll never forget. We have been … » full post and pics!
Buffalo Pound, Hartwell Cabin, June 25-July 2
You may know that Buffalo Pound is our favourite close-to-home destination. We have several options too! Most of the time it’s the south shore… the provincial park or a private campground… but sometimes we go to Valley View on the north shore to visit the Randi and Floyd (and son … » full post and pics!
Buffalo Pound, Maple Vale – June 3-8
Finally time to start the 2021 camping season! We started close by, our home base of provincial parks if you will, Buffalo Pound Provincial Park. It’s only an hour drive to the north west for us, so we’ve been here many times! We love the scenery and how … » full post and pics!
Books I read in 2020
Since I want to make this an annual post, here’s what I read in 2020! I’ll never have a long list of books, but my biggest change in 2020 is that I got a proper ereader! And oh boy, do I ever love that thing!!

RIP Jon McCaulder
In June we had to say goodbye to yet another loved one… our friend Jon had been battling health problems connected to kidney failure since many years. Getting a new kidney in 2011 improved his health for quite a while. But eventually it failed too and he ended up back … » full post and pics!
RIP Dad: Harry Breeuwer
I would’ve never thought I’d ever have four “rest in peace” blog posts in a row. It all happened over the course of a good month, so I did not feel like work or putting up any cheerful posts in between. I also never thought I’d really have to say … » full post and pics!
