Erin and I and the dogs went up north to visit our friends Donna and Terry in the R.M. of Piney, Manitoba over the Thanksgiving holiday (the U.S. one, not the Canadian Thanksgiving which is in October) and we had a lovely visit and got in a lot of walks in the woods. It was very warm the day we left with temperatures in the 50F range, but it got colder soon enough and we had a few inches of snow fall on Thursday and Saturday afternoon & Sunday morning. We also got in a trip to Roseau, Minnesota (Terry and Donna live very close to the U.S. - Canada border) to check out a craft show at the high school there and an art gallery that Donna likes where I purchased some pottery. Erin had a great time talking with a local wildlife photographer and I also found a pair of alpaca socks I liked. Then we stopped by the grocery store to buy a few more food items for our big turkey dinner on Saturday which was very good as Terry loves to cook and is a very good cook indeed. I did take some photos with my little Canon A2200 camera as part of the trip too, so here they are:
When we first arrived, the cats knew something was up and they didn't like it at all. They spent the weekend avoiding the dogs, but did have access to the house at least, as the dogs weren't allowed in the house.
