Where I stayed
Tuesday Cecile took the day off to show us around. We started out at "The Forks" and walked the Esplanade Riel. The kids (okay, me too) went to the Sugar Mountain Express which is an old train that doubles as a candy store. Allison and Melissa paid $5 each for chocolate frogs! Next was a quick walk around the St. Boniface Parliament Building and then on to the St
Tuesday evening Cecile had friends over to meet me. After a beer and some nice conversation, I was exhausted and went to bed.
Wednesday, Canada Day, started out at the Assiniboine Park Zoo. July 1st is the only day there is no charge. We walked around the zoo for the morning and took a train ride in the early afternoon. Cecile brought us back to her place where we did some of our laundry and just relaxed until it was time to go back to The Forks for fireworks. The sun doesn't set very early in Winnipeg so the fireworks got underway around 10:45 until about 11:15. Very nice!! It took us an hour to get out of the parking lot though!
Thanks Cecile for being a fantastic hostess and tour guide. We'll be seeing you again on the 20th. :o)
