Near the beginning of August we took a mini vacation to Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, a city not far from Regina and only 2 and a half hours from home. What a treat! We fit a lot into the short time we were there, and have several hundred photos to look back on. Here are just a few...
|This gigantic moose is in front the Visitor Information Centre welcoming all the travelers.|
|Near our campground, there was a tree that had grown in a very unique way.|
|Also near our campground, just across the river was a very busy train station. |
This rickety looking bridge is still being used today. My timing was off,
and I didn't have my camera with me when there were cars on it.
|The Sukanen Museum was absolutely wonderful! 40 acres is home to a Pioneer|
Village. This is the School House and it was brimming with wonderful antiques!
There were even books on the desks, and an in-house outhouse!
|The Phone Company. My Grandmother worked as an operator in a place that|
must have looked much like this one.
|The cash register at the Hardware Store.|
|This lovely home was fully furnished with more antiques than |
you could shake a stick at! I could have moved right in.
|I had to include this old drill press from the Blacksmith Shop|
because my husband commented on it saying that he had used
the one at the farm just last week.
|The family enjoying the sunset on the river.|
|There was some graffiti under the train bridge. Hopefully my creative |
photography doesn't get us into trouble.
|This old train station is displayed complete with ticket booth, schedules, luggage|
and even your waiting bench. I'll soon be looking into travelling by train for
one of our vacations. I think the perspective would be a wonderful experience.
|Is there anything more classy than these beautiful wooden boats? My husband |
can't decide if he would rather build one or restore an oldie to her original grace.
