This first part includes May 9-11.
We left on May 9 from our home province of Manitoba and headed to Saskatchewan. These are certainly not the most thrilling provinces of Canada. No offense to anyone who lives in them or loves them. But, apart from some specific areas (where we did not go), traveling through is mostly just a view of highway surrounded by endless flat fields and pastures.
|Leaving on our road trip early Saturday afternoon!|
|When the most exciting thing you've seen all day is a loose herd of cattle some men are trying to corral, it's probably time to call it a night.|
Back to the trip. It was a lot more driving through Saskatchewan. There were a lot of big puddles beside the highway full of shore birds and ducks.
|One lake we stopped at was called Reed Lake and it had a tower we climbed up to birdwatch.|
|American Avocet, one of my favourite birds.|
|King Penguins are disappointingly smaller than I imagined, but still regal.|
|Attractive, eh? Lol!|
|The rhino looked really prehistoric.|
|Mama & baby. I love meerkats! There were lots of them; they were standing in the sunshine and as they got sleepy they almost fell over - very funny!|
|The conservatory and gardens were beautiful.|
Please come back to read the second part tomorrow :)
