Being a tourist in southern Saskatchewan

I just had my long time friend Darlene from Vancouver (originally Winnipeg) staying with me and I got to be a tourist in my own home town and surrounding area - always fun.  And hey, I am desperate to play tourist!

I recently bought myself a new camera - a Panasonic Lumix - only mine is turquoise blue. (my favourite colour!)  I have been having fun playing with it.  Still working on the quirks on the zoom lens; not feelin' the love on that part of it but it could be me. 

We walked around beautiful Wascana Lake which is a stone's throw from my home..lucky lucky me...I never ever get tired of walking in this park.



This fountain was originally in London's Trafalgar Square!
Then we went to Regina Beach, walked along the old railway bed trail for about an hour and then had fish and chips at the local iconic Blue Bird Cafe.  


Along the trail

A lovely walk!



We didn't put our toes in

Far from the best I've had but it will do

On the way home Darlene was blown away by the puffy clouds in the sky so we had to stop the car and take some photos.

 Later that evening we drove up Goose Hill in Wascana Park for an amazing sunset view








The next day we went to Moose Jaw however I didn't take as many photos and I do plan to go back and take photos of the murals - watch for that!!

For now this will have to do...it was fabulous to spend time with Darlene again and explore a bit of southern Saskatchewan. 

This summer is going to be very exciting - stay tuned.

Your cute. Your love for Saskatchewan is refreshing. I stole your photos of the Wakamow- (spelling error) Moose Jaw trails for my scrap book. Thank you.
