We hear the geese flying south almost all day long. Soon we will join them. South >>>>>>
I am certain that many full-timers look at the routes in the cities and towns they are familiar with and wonder how visitors would do getting around with the signage on the streets. We do.
Upon arriving in Winnipeg on Tuesday, we expected to have no trouble at all navigating to our campsite. After all we have been here before and Winnipeg has a great perimeter highway that takes you around to where you want to be. Well, let me tell you, the construction is crazy and the signs are gone or so hidden that hauling a rig on unfamiliar highways is next to impossible. We had to go through the city. And yes, it was rush hour. I searched for a picture. There are plenty of images of what the project will look like finished but none of the mess.
We finally found our way into Bird's Hill park. The park is almost empty. We have our loop to our self.
The first morning, I got a text from a girlfriend who I reunited with 4 years ago. She is from Parksville, BC and her and her husband were visiting her sister in Winnipeg and just happened to be going to brunch here in the park. We arranged to meet and had a lovely time.

The restaurant, called Pine Ridge Hollow, was very nice and had gardens all around it.
We managed to tuck in a small rest in the afternoon and then met up with our daughter, Charlette and her two sons, James who is almost 15 and William who is 12. Charlette's husband, Glen was working. We went to dinner at Moxies.
Today we will have to catch up with the laundry and rest up. Tomorrow - shopping for a new television. We'd had enough of this problematic one and we will gift it to William.
