Manitoba

 I made good use of the Wi-Fi at the campground office and the good location for walking Shadow outside the campground before we left at 10:10. We continued in a southeasterly direction on hwy 16 through several small towns and
communities, each  with its "Tourist Attractions" posted. We stopped a few times for photo ops. We got a good impression of the way of life in rural Saskatchewan.



We entered Manitoba and Central Time, losing  one hour and stopped in Russell at the Visitor Centre with Arthur the Bull.  A young man was very helpful providing lots of information. We ate lunch there  and motored on with another stop in Strathclair at a school where I played Frisbee with Shadow. Another great workout for her.

At Minnedosa, we took hwy 10 south the remaining way to Brandon but turned back to Hwy 16 because the highway was  in such terrible condition. At Neepawa, we took hwy 5 south to hwy 1 and had to back track several km to Brandon. Our detour added about 75 km to our route but was worth it to spare Harvee Too.
We stopped at 4:45 at Bry-Mar RV Park and Campground, another Good Sam campground 6 km east of Brandon. We have full hookups and excellent Wi-Fi at our site but just one channel, CTV, all for $30.24. It was cloudy and cool all day, only 18º but rain free as we motored 352 km.  Harvee Too's odometer went over the 150,000 km mark.
