Packing has commenced and we are living amongst boxes and piles to sort through, pack up, throw out or give away. With our moving date just over a week away it seems absurd to take the day off and head to the beach, but that is exactly what we did today - and it turned out to be a well needed day off from reality.
One of Robin's former students very generously offered to host us for an afternoon out at their cottage at Victoria Beach on Lake Winnipeg. We'd heard much about the beautiful white sand beaches of Lake Winnipeg as popular cottage country for many Manitobans.
Although the water wasn't quite warm enough for swimming, it was a beautiful day to spend it walking along the shore looking for beach treasures and playing in the sand dunes. Many thanks to Peter and Daria for a wonderful day and meal.
