One of my favourite places is also an unlikely choice, We lived in Saskatchewan for many years and only left with trepidation and regrets. Having said that we made many life friends there, and a joyous occasion caused us to make the trek to our old home. The daughter of some very close friends was married in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan and most of our old group of friends were in attendance.
The first part of our journey was a 7 hour drive to Martensville, Saskatchewan, guided by my son’s intrepid guide dog, Vader.
He led us to Kindersley, Saskatchewan, where we stopped for lunch.
Garden spot isn’t it. Actually a very nice town, with a typical highway frontage. Nothing to see here.
Vader did eventually lead us to the wedding in Prince Albert, where we had a great time, catching up with many old friends.
The next morning, Vader took us to Candle Lake, and the lakefront cottage of some friends. Great time, and I’ll let some pictures do the talking.
We ran into a local trapper.
Vader even got his opportunity to get in some beach time with his new buddy, Mowgli.

I would love to travel there one day; I love the cold. That trapper lady is fabulous!
Trapper lady was using the hat to hold an ice pack. Feel over backwards in a chair on the beach and had a run in with a rock.
haha Oh I hope not! She was too cool with her hat.
She was fine, just a bit of a bump. Pretty ugly when it happened though. Skulls and rocks are seldom a good pairing
Shame, I had thought you were joking. No it isn’t a good pairing. Glad she’s okay now.
No harm. I thought it was a good picture and I intended it to be humorous. Everything has a back story though.
Have not been to Candle Lake for ages! So nice
Same. Great place to enjoy summer.
Was returning there like stepping into a comfortable pair of old shoes, or did it seem like the whole town was different?
Pair of shoes definitely. Town has changed though. Double the population and its an official city now.
The 2 dogs playing was so precious!
They were hilarious.
They did that all day. Then vader slept the whole nine hours home the next day.
