Then Into the Great Great Lakes

If I ever do move back East from here, I hope a fantastically unlikely set of circumstances lets me do it by York Boat.

So, I was in Warman for a wedding! An Olivia-Chris wedding! But I brought a camera I'm not used to, so I only have blurry pictures of the beautiful ceremony:
But there was Heidi! While the wedding party was getting pictures done, she showed me how to do Saskatoon right:
Then it was back to the reception, with lovely speeches and wicked-fun square dancing, and smiles and (new) family and love and stuff.

In Good Company

Followed by... wait, what?

Hooray! I get to become an 8th-year PhD student. I celebrated with a beer so hoppy it needed a warning.

Sasuga Garneau

I don't visit the Garneau alleys much these days, but it's nice to know they're keeping up the trend.

I couldn't help but see these as lost balloon animals.
