Night market trees

Saturday 30 June 2012

We went to the night market tonight, for some wonderful shaved ice/tapioca balls/mango chunks/sweetened condensed milk goodness. They had these trees on which you could hang your wishes. Most of the wishes hung had to do with getting or keeping boyfriends, or doing well in school.

Busy day on the bay

Thursday 28 June 2012

I don't know if the photo really shows it well, but the water was so busy today! Kayakers, paddle boarders, sailboats, canoes, even a dragon boat team.

For our last day in Saskatchwan, here's a photo of a thirteen-striped groundsquirrel.

Is that a molehill?

Sunday 24 June 2012

A photo from the drive from Saskatoon to Regina. See that tiny bump on the horizon? Yeah, that's Blackstrap "Mountain." Yeah.

A bride in red

Saturday 23 June 2012

We went to Ryan's cousin's wedding today. The bride was certainly non-traditional, but I thought she looked amazing.

We borrowed a plant identification book from a friend, and are enjoying looking up all the wildflowers here in Prince Albert.

Leaning barn of Saskatchewan

Monday 18 June 2012

Ryan and I head up north today, at the beginning of our camping trip. Here's a cool barn we passed on our journey through the prairies.

Queen Victoria

Sunday 17 June 2012

We found a book of cocktail recipes, and the Birds have a cabinet full of fancy liquors. Hooray for drinks in the backyard!

Ryan and I went over to that carnival today. Didn't go on any rides; we just took photos of them instead, as usual!

Saskatchewan carnival!

Thursday 14 June 2012

Ryan and I arrived in Saskatchewan today, home for a family visit. We strolled over to the carnival setting up in the parking lot across the way. There were dozens of trucks and campers all lined up at the edge; most were painted with circus and festival scenes. I particularly loved this one - a modern day wagon painted with an old-fashioned one.

Hello dippy

These just seem wrong on so many levels. In case you can't read the sign on the side there, these are cell phone covers made from Austrian crystals.

The real Shyla

Wednesday 6 June 2012

So, that cat we're cat-sitting? Yeah, she's crazy. She's a rescue cat, and came away with a few neuroses. Every now and then she needs some time to herself to tear out giant chunks of her hair. She has been checked out and there's nothing much to do about it. And really, if she's a sweet and wonderful cat who survived her abuse with only this one tick? Not bad.

About a third of the button selection at Dressew, a local store. (Pron "dress  ew," according to Ryan.)

Locked up

Six abandoned bike locks, all on the same rack. And those things are expensive!
