Now, I find this quite humorous that Karen has chosen the whole province of Manitoba over a single region or city. (I tease you, Karen.) That said, I am totally cheating and using my own photograph, taken in August 1993 when I went on my first honeymoon. Yes, I had one of those starter marriages that was over before you could say Boo! That said, we have remained friends and all is well and it was a wonderful trip.
A Drive West
“We’re going to drive west, camping along the way till we get to Vancouver, stay a few days and drive back through the States.”
“Exciting honeymoon. Not.”
“Pffft! I drove across with my folks when I was 21. We have a beautiful country.”
“If you say so. You should fly over the boring Prairies. There’s nothing to see there!”
“Says you who has never been outside Quebec.”
“Never mind, you hear. Until you DO, you’ve nothing to say.”
“You know what we should have done? Skip Ontario! Bloody hell. Three days to cross it seeing nothing but trees and rocks!”
“And what is this about the prairies being boring? It’s beautiful here. You can pretend you are in Tuscany with all these beautiful sunflowers!”
“Yeah. That said. In Tuscany, they don’t have skeeters big enough to take you away! What the hell? Are they fertilized to grow so big?”
