A restless night of van-camping and Max was wide awake at 5:00. It is a beautiful thing to go walking when the grass is still wet and all of the rest of the world is sleeping.
The water is so high in both Saskatchewan and Manitoba, that the road into Buffalo Pound Provincial Park is just a narrow strip, in some cases, with water coming up to pavement level on both sides. Remarkably magical!
Buffy Ste. Marie’s ‘I’m Going Home’ was playing on the i pod at the time. I was overwhelmed with the spiritual sense of everything!
I met Jimmy Fardy and his wife Jan. He showed me black and white photos of my great grandparents and my great Uncle Joe. I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to navigate Winnipeg but all went swimmingly. It was a most precious hour-long meeting, especially given my pilgrimage back to ‘the island’ this summer.
