Day 16: Province Number 3

Our start today was at 7 am after a wonderful breakfast by our hosts in Whitewood, SK. They even packed us a lunch to take along! This photo shows our wonderful hosts in front of a mural depicting the history of the town.

DSC_4630Our cycling was from Whitewood, SK to Brandon, Mn. So we crossed into our third province, Manitoba. A 198 km day.

DSC_4644The wind was at our backs, the temperature was in the high 20’s and the land scape was starting to roll a bit and more trees. Eastern Saskatchewan and Western Manitoba are beautiful! We had a bit of a detour so did not get in until 7 pm which includes the time change.  Along the way came across new species of wild life…

DSC_4649We did see of the effects of the flooding in the Brandon area. Water does transform communities for good or bad. Clean water will give life to the 60 communities we are seeking to help.

Tonight is the second night off since we left home.So good to have the early bed time.  Off to Winnipeg tomorrow.
