>Two different directions… one day!


This morning we found ourselves at “St. Norbert’s Market”… most people go to a farmer’s market and come home with fresh fruit and veg… well Meg and I did not come home with that… BUT some new necklaces!!

There was a llama in a small cage with some goats!

The ‘button’ necklaces… they were SOOO cool… I’m so loving my long one I got!!
Meg modelling her new ‘button’ necklace… (I got one too!)
I was talking to this woman at one both and she commented on my ‘jade’ New Zealand necklace… and she looked at the cord and saw how ‘woren’ it was…(I got it about 6 years ago.. and its a favourite necklace of mine… and wear it most days since I got it…partly because of what it represents!)… she offered to make me a NEW cord.. for free! (I said thanks so much.. but also ended up buying one of her really cool wooden necklaces..)  Some people are so kind… she wanted to let me know that I didn’t have to buy anything, or even pay for the new cord…
Meg and I got some perogies for lunch… we had 2 ‘saskatoon berry’ ones.. and a cottage cheese one… (they were sooooooo yummy!!! (I had never had either kind…but well we were pleasantly surprised…and they filled us up so much!!)
We got back to my house about 1ish.. but because it was so HOT outside.. and sunny… we decided to get our ‘beach’ gear and head NORTH of the city to “Grand Beach”… (it’s about an hour’s drive north located on Lake Winnipeg!!)

It was so worth the drive… and there were quite a few others that got out of the city as well!!! We walked thru this crowd.. until we found a spot for our gear…. (the view to the left of us…)

..and the view to the right of us… a little less crowded!
Chill’n on the beach….

It was a great couple of hours… and so worth the drive, even if the water felt like ICE!!!

On the way home Meg caught a few more awesome photos out the window…. We both thought that this place… was HILARIOUS!!! (but we didn’t stop in to try our luck!)
..a water tower!
…Grain towers…
This is a fav of mine that she took… because it captures HER in the process of taking the shot!! Meg you have a great eye.. and have figured out my camera!! (I’m just sorry that yours hasn’t been working!)

…after dinner we settled down for a night in and a movie…(which I fell asleep in about 1/2 way thru oops!)Thanks for an awesome day Meg!
