Spontaneous Trip to Spiritwood

My parents were spending the weekend painting my grandparents’ house, so I decided to drive up to visit them all for the day. It was a rainy day, which honestly added to the beauty of the drive. Everything was so green and fresh, and it’s an area covered in little lakes and sloughs among the rolling hills. There were multiple times that I looked out my car window and my only response to the scenes was “OH MY GOD SO PRETTY!” This area is super gorgeous and I’m looking forward to seeing it lit up with fall colours. The little Blaine Lake Library is one of my favourites – it’s so cute! On the way home, I was graced by a lovely double rainbow.

My parents had been to the city twice before, but there was still a lot they hadn’t seen, so it was great that we got to do that together. I had done quite a lot of searching on Google before we went, so I had a list of things I really wanted to see and do. (Spontaneity clearly isn’t really my thing…)
