Winnipeg and the Prairies: Tuesday July 14th
About 6AM we stopped at Winnipeg. Eufron went out and bought
coffees and cokes.
When we were dressed we had about 2 minutes walk along the
platform and then waited in the diner for breakfast.
For most of the day we were travelling across the prairies, which were not as
flat as we had been led to believe. It was all very green, and seemed almost
unpopulated. The train ride was much smoother today: far less rolling from side
We were in Saskatoon for supper and noted the fences as
described in "The Dog That Wouldn't Be".
At Bigger we put the clocks back and put the children to bed!
There was a small fan to circulate the air in the bedroom. Peter had a comment:
"The fan must have wires to run it - or does it use the rails?"
