Quoted From A Fellow Traveler:

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.

Looking For Things Of Interest In The Area

Not far from our campground is the small town of Sexsmith
 The town is saving a lot of their old buildings to create museums.
The old train station.
Got to check out these old buildings.
This new building is across the street from those old barns.
This is the old blacksmith shop.
I love this old junk.
Even had some old machinery.
Like this belt driven engine lathe.

Old drill press
Another drill
A trip hammer
Joyce wouldn't let me ask!!!
A view of the old buildings.
Curling is very popular in Canada. We have found Curling Clubs in most towns we have passed through.
My old friends from Bird Machine should remember this old machine........no, not me. I ran one of these many years ago. It is a Bullard Vertical Turret Lathe.
These small towns like painting murals on the side of their buildings.
Man-o-man, they even have one of these!
All the lamp post have a large pot of flowers hanging.
??? This was in the alley outside the bakery. The nameplate only list the German company that made it. Do you know what it is? I Think it may be some kind of heavy duty mixer.
Heading back to camp we travel through the industrial area. Oil rig suppliers are everywhere.
Oh Canada!!!!
Coming back to Grande Prairie
Big city
But we found a park behind the visitors center. Joyce spotted a big nest in this tree.
This nest is about two feet in diameter.
Casey got a chance to play ball and burn off some energy.
This posting brings me up to date....wow! We have a good Wifi here so it gave us a chance to even Skype one of our daughters.

The weather has turned hot here and it is very dry. My fingers are splitting and the house batteries took over a gallon of distilled water. We are here till Friday when we will be heading to Dawson Creek.
