Nathan's first time in Saskatchewan
22.05.2011 - 22.05.2011 24 °C
Growing up in Vermilion, AB I often visited Saskatchewan, and Lloydminster in particular. Many nights after school were spent driving to Lloyd, just because it wasn't Vermilion. I also spent many summers visiting (in my opinion, the nicer parts of) Saskatchewan. We went to Prince Albert National Park and Waskesiu. I also have family in Pierceland.
Nathan, on the other hand, had never been to Saskatchewan. Weird, I know, when you live only 2 hours away your whole life! We joked about him moving to Nova Scotia this fall (he is going to grad school at Dalhousie) and how that was weird without having been to Saskatchewan. So, this May long weekend, while we were at my family's cabin at Laurier Lake, we took a quick trip to Lloydminster.
We drove across the border to show Nathan the lovely red (orange?) pilars.
Mostly, we spent the entire time explaining how nice the rest of the province is. Ha. Lloyd hadn't changed a bit since I was there in high school, except for massive amounts more of big box stores in ugly parking lots. The rest of the city seemed unchanged and neglected.
