Next stop was Watrous, Saskatchewan. This is home to Manitou Beach. This is a very small town with a whole lot of character. We stayed at the Manitou and district regional park and campground. This park is clean and well maintained in a beautiful setting. We recommend this place.
This body of water is full of minerals said to have many healing properties. I tried putting my feet in but the water was freezing.
The town’s highlight is this mineral pool. They refer to it as Canada’s dead sea. The water is so full of minerals that it is impossible to sink. You can stand straight up in the 9 foot section and you will just bob there. What an experience.
Sculptures from local artists can be seen throughout the town.
I found this artist’s pieces to be fascinating. They are made out of recycled items but one of them is rebar…ever tried to bend rebar!
We went for a night out to Danceland. Danceland is a very famous ballroom that has been around for almost 100 years. It has a 5000 square foot dancefloor that is built on horsehair. The live band “Phoenix” was great. We danced the night away and had a fantastic time.
Meet Doris. This amazing woman is so full of fun. She is known as the hat lady. She gifted me with this fabulous hat.
These young people know how to have a good time. When we asked what the special occasion they were dressed up for was, they told us…”it’s Saturday night!”
Meet Steve, Marilyn, Sarah and Pastor Doug. We met these wonderful people at the Baptist church in Watrous. An incredible part of our journey has been all the amazing people we have met. We have thoroughly enjoyed our time here.
We left Watrous this morning and headed Southeast. We are spending the night in White City, Saskatchewan. We will continue heading East tomorrow.
Have you heard the one about the guy who thought it was ok to overload his truck with branches and drive through town. Well…one of those branches struck the windshield of someone passing by and cracked it. Guess who needs a new windshield!
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those
who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever. AMEN
