The past week, the imp has been in camp. She is loving it. Thank you Big Brothers Big Sisters for helping her enjoy Saskatchewan a little bit more!! The night before she had a slumber party with RCMP officers in Regina … I mean how much safer can you get?!? 🙂
We had been to Canora before, but just to take our picture with the big Ukrainian lady.
With the imp yucking it up in Regina, the sidekick and I decided to go ‘downtown’ Canora and explore a little bit of even smaller-then-where-we-live-town Saskatchewan. We were pleasantly surprised.
Our first stop was the ice cream store. I didn’t take any pictures so I stole one off my dad’s camera from when he was there. 🙂 He loves me and won’t sue me for copyright privileges.
We then walked the main strip……………………………..In small town Saskatchewan that means walking 3 blocks….if you’re lucky. However this was totally worth it. Although I should clarify in the summer, not in the winter.
The sidekick was surprised to see this Coke slogan. He’s a big Diet Coke drinker and this amused him for a few moments. I looked it up, and we think this sign is probably about 28 years old.
The admission fee for this small museum is $2. How can you go wrong for that price? Admittedly being of Ukrainian descent, I found this museum a little more fascinating then the sidekick did. However he did enjoy it he said. The museum use to be a meat store. The owner sold it to the museum people for $1. I’m still shaking my head…$1.
Prince Volodymyr brought Christianity to Ukraine. I was surprised to find out he was female….ok haha … this means you really need to go and support this museum. Their budget for props isn’t the greatest. It was a really good side trip though.
Canora – I hope if you ever come visit me you take a day trip out there. It was a great cheap way to spend an afternoon!!
Not this upcoming week, but the next we are headed for an overnight in Saskatoon. I can’t wait 🙂 A city… I’m drooling with anticipation.
