Bought myself a Christmas present

Picked up a bottle of forty year old Taylor Fladgate Tawny Port.

Think I will crack it on Christmas Day.

After all, I have been (reasonably) good.

Summer shot

From somewhere in Saskatchewan from this summer. I will admit to feeling a bit down over COVID, restrictions, and it getting dark when I get off work. It is really unfortunate that there are yellow fields of Canola for a short time. It is also unfortunate that I never seem to get enough photos to post when summer is over.

Grad 2020


It seems to be an annual event for the high school graduation students in Kerrobert, Saskatchewan to celebrate the occasion by repainting this old barn.

Chances are grad was a non-event this year but at least the kids were able to enjoy this annual tradition.

The barn is located on the northern edge of town where Atlantic Avenue turns into Ontario Avenue.

Twilight moose

Not the greatest photo due to the light. Spotted him on my way home today. 

St. Paul's United Church


The St. Paul's Anglican Church near Poplar Point, Manitoba is a nice little country church. I've photographed it a few times as I passed by it chasing trains. I think it is still in use; at least it is well maintained.

The drone photo above is from July 2020 while the winter photo below is from November 2019.

Finally, here's another ground-level photo from July 2017.

There's a small cemetery adjacent to the church.

The church is on Google Maps and has 3 reviews - two five star reviews and one four star.
