A Return to Saskatoon

Last week we travelled to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Neil was invited to teach at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Saskatchewan for the week.We lived in Saskatoon for 4 years while he studied there. We have been back once prior but only for a couple of days. We enjoyed our week and managed to embrace the winter conditions. We ran most evenings despite the temperature dropping well below zero. We enjoyed catching up with friends and faculty. On the Friday a snow storm developed across the prairies and not only delayed our flight from Saskatoon but also from  Edmonton on route to Abbotsford. We arrived home very late but were pleased to have a long weekend to enjoy. 

 Ron, Marilyn and me!

 The Berry Barn where we went for lunch...brrrrr....
 The Bessborough Hotel where we stayed. It's a beautiful hotel on the river.

Home sweet Home!
