Cross-Canada Shenanigans – Edmonton to Regina
As Edmonton recedes in the rear view mirror of our fully loaded Ford Escape (luggage, not leather and sunroof) I can’t help but smell a whiff of regret. No…wait…that’s the cat litter from the litterbox at the back of the car. Never mind. No regret.
Anyway, the first leg of our cross-country journey is complete. Greetings from the homicide capital of Canada! Just a tip…you might not want to stay at the Howard-Johnson’s in Regina.
Thoughts so far:
– I’m pretty sure that the Yellowhead Highway makes the surrounding part of every city it goes through look like a post-apocalyptic nightmare of concrete and big-boxes. Edmonton, Lloydminster, Saskatoon – none come out looking pretty from the Yellowhead.
– I’m bummed we didn’t stop at the Historic Telephone Museum in Manville, AB. That is something I’ll have wished I did when I’m on my death bed.
– Our cat stopped meowing somewhere outside of Lloydminster, thank the lord.
– Saskatchewan is kind of boring at night. I mean, it’s not a thrill a minute in the light, but at least we could see the fields.
What’s next? Manitoba and beyond!
