Our short day today got quite long… very blustery and cold day (high 13 degrees in Winnipeg, 26 degrees in Vancouver), though the wind was mainly at our backs.

Don't we buy our insurance from these people??

Breakfast – peaches and yoghurt in our room, photo ops at the bridge.  I did a little cycle tour of Souris, then we set off.  Some crop damage from the heavy rain last night.  Lunch at Wawanesa, home of the insurance company, which still has quite a presence there.  Then on to this farm B+B, cupboards full of evidence of little visitors to the building.

For a little amusement we took a quick spin up to Spruce Woods Park, the ancient sandy delta of the Assiniboine River, reduced to 4 mi sq north of here.  We walked in the dunes, wonderful strange desert ecosystem with sand and ducks.

10 km back to town, dinner at the motel cafe, then back to our B+B.
