Halfway across Canada. We are in Winnipeg, which is considered the halfway point across Canada, however for us halfway will be in a few days when we cross in to the US at Fort Frances / International Falls.
The Eastern side of Saskatchewan was much nicer than the rest of the province, with forests and small hills, if you imagined that the yellow Lucerne in flower were sunflowers then you could almost think you were in France. Broadview, where we spent the night, was infact a very pretty village and had won some awards for environmental awareness, Manitoba is much prettier than Saskatchewan. It even has forests of Oaks. One campground we stayed at even had squirrels running up and down the tree trunks, I felt like I was in England.
My feet have healed up with the use of bandages and socks. My persistent cold has all but gone, and even my cracked lips are not stinging any more. So my body is as good as I can expect it to be.
We are about to head south to the US, and that is through a myriad of lakes and forests, we will be back in Bear country. We have never left Mosquito country. I am sure there is not a single part of my body they haven’t bitten.
