People watching on Edmonton promenade!
At this time of a year it might be a good thing to remind yourself on nice and warm weather we have had here during the summer and forget for a moment on showeling the snow.

The Great Lake Gateway
It’s 6 a.m. and our family is stranded, castaways on a remote and rocky shore of Mara Lake, in B.C.’s Shuswap region. Our houseboat has no power. Neither the engine nor the generator will turn over. The radio is dead. There’s really only one thing to do: go golfing.
