July 25-28

Canola fields with lots of surface water

Cypress Hills Winery

Tasty Winery lunch

Abandoned character service station in SK
Our first week was spent in SK visiting Mother Dot of course with a side trip to the Cypress Hills where we discovered the most awesome little winery absolutely in the middle of nowhere - but how quaint and first class - they grow their own fresh produce for lunches and grow their own climate compatible grapes and other fruits for their wines.  We enjoyed a very classy / tasty lunch on their patio overlooking the hills.  The fields are awesome by the way - lush crops, beautiful blooming Canola and the flax just starting to bloom.  Hay crops are lush.  But lots of evidence of the heavy rains and flooding.
