Roads more gravelled.

We headed for Saskatoon this morning to catch up with Lez's brother Ralph. We met him and passed on some of the Worel parents stuff that he wanted to have. Then we headed for Last Mountain Regional Park. How about 17 kms on a gravel road! Oh well. The park was terribly overpriced ($ 50.00) for a site that had 30 amp power and no other services. No water, sewer or garbage container in sight. After a steak supper (during which we took two minutes and moved the unit forward about three feet so we could reach the electrical post) we wandered over to the lake and took some nice pictures. Then we visited the bird banding station where gramps had spent many days (and some nights). As we walked back to the Schooner we managed to catch the ice cream shack still open so we could enjoy some Chapmans ice cream.

Lez complaining: We had planned to spending the night at Watrous, checking out Manitou Beach, but the private campground there does not take foreigners at this time. However, Regional parks are open - and this one is busy! Will enjoy the morning start with some more photography. Speaking of missing signs, aside from a few retracings (like today's dead end) we are doing ok! And Lee is getting practice at backing up! AND Hobbes got that mouse too! We only found pieces.
