What Goes On With No Sense of Time or Schedule.

Ahh, yes. Relaxation. This folks, is where I threw any sense of schedule away for two weeks. This is a place that is surrounded by trees and rocks, bears and plenty of fish.

This is Rocky Lake, Manitoba.

This was the first time that I had ever ventured to this place and the trek was 12 hours, but it was completely worth it! Picture if you will the Canadian Shield, which means towering rocks and forest everywhere. The views were amazing! I mean, you wake up, get out of your trailer and look out upon this.......

Can you imagine? Rocks everywhere. Even the little islands in the lake were perfect little tables of rocks with a beautiful cropping of evergreens bursting into the sky.

And we loved the hospitality. This gorgeous place is home to Ed and Arleigh Tomchak, owners of the lovely Kum-Bac Kabins. It is definitely a popular destination. Friendly faces and faces from everywhere. We met people staying there from all over. Saskatchewan, Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, North Dakota, Kansas, Indiana, Missouri and even as far as Texas!

What brings everyone form everywhere out to this remote place? Why, the fishing, of course! There is nothing more gratifying than casting out your line, getting that bite and reeling in a fish on a thin little line. There is also no better meal than fresh fish for a fish fry either. Yummy!

As you can see, we also managed to get a fair share of photographs. Between myself and my camera nut of a husband, we the photos that we came home with were absolutely breath taking.

As I am sure, you can already tell I made a page. I told you in my last post that I decided to get back into the routine.

I told you I was back! Alrighty, until next time, see you later!
