I crossed the prairies by train for the first time in September, 1953, on my way to Royal Roads. I had grown up in scenic Newfoundland so I was hardly prepared for the 3 days of flatlands that the rail followed from northwestern Ontario to Calgary. I swore that this was one part of Canada in which I never wanted to stay.
Surprise! In 1978, I came to Saskatchewan on a consulting contract and then got into real estate development. We are still here! Marlo and I have found one of the true beauty spots in central Saskatchewan on the South Saskatchewan River at historic Elbow. The scenery and wildlife here are quite spectacular on 100 mile long Lake Diefenbaker. We have it all; golf, sailing, cross-country skiing, and many miles of unspoiled wilderness to explore, all while we are roughly equidistant from Saskatoon, Regina, and Moose Jaw. The enclosed collage of pictures will show you some of the attractions of our 12 acre, semi-retirement refuge which we started to develop on a flat bean field in 2000.
