Riley Goes to Kotor Monday October 2, 2017

Categories: 2017, Daily Log, Personal, and Travel.

The night before, I saw what appeared to be an excellent deal for breakfast. So we went to a hotel for a cheap buffet and that turned out to be a mistake. (Well, we were maybe too late.) The hot food was cold. Everything was not really as good as we had at other hotel buffets. We did get omelets though, so that’s something. Anyway, it was dirt cheap (CAD$7.50 per person) and we learned a lesson. Read More

Riley Goes to Saskatchewan Day 4 – Monday June 5, 2017 Yorkton and Melville

Categories: 2017, Daily Log, Personal, and Travel.

This morning we had the Kuchen (Kowach?) that we bought at the Farmer’s Market, which was pretty great. Then we went for a walk down to the end of the road, and then back to the other end of the road. I was not expecting all the trees as my idea of the farming part of Saskatchewan was based solely on driving the TransCanada through the southern part of the province. I knew there were trees but I had seen them in the north (really central) part of the province, and didn’t think there would be so many this far Read More
