Cecil Ferry, Saskatchewan July 15, 2017

The Cecil Ferry is east of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, gravel roads on either side, and crosses the North Saskatchewan River.




What makes road trips interesting is the unexpected. I got to share the ferry with farm equipment. Not a lot of room left over my car on a small ferry.


You can see my car just in front.

The prairie air could be better

There are numerous forest fires in the province of British Columbia west of where I live. With winds and air currents the smoke from those fires has drifted into Alberta. Some days there is quite the haze in the air. I woke up sometime after three this morning coughing and choking due to the smoke in the air. I got a headache from the coughing and do not feel the greatest. I definitely have empathy for anyone that suffers from asthma, it must be hellish.

Obviously the people who are directly affected by the fires have it far worse. I think it will be a relief when the first snowfall hits. A good steady rain for a few days over British Columbia would help immensely.

Stumbled across this site and thought others might find it interesting.

August 17th already?

Where is my summer going?

I have either crammed too much into my summer or not enough.
