Prince Albert National Park

The Northern Lights Casino
The casino is the place to be when the weather is bad and you can't travel far. I was so surprised how busy it was during the day. We went twice, once I won, the other I lost! But hey ho, I won a lot more than I lost!!!My Uncle and Auntie took us. We signed up as new members...

Winners: The TXMaxx of Canada!
I would liken Winners to TXMaxx. It has clothes, furniture, homewear, shoes, books, beauty products, Halloween dressing up outfits (I assume this is only at this time of year?), accessories and jewellery. It's a shop you have to rummage through, but when you find that bargin...

In a Canadian home
Just a quick tip!When entering a Canadian home, take your shoes off and leave them by the door (on the inside) unless your are directed to put them into a closet nearby.
This is the place that fixed our car in half the time and saved us lots of $$$. They did a great job and even gave us a loaner car.
