Take a look around our Northern (unnamed) community

Before bed tonight, I'd like to share a few images of the Northern Saskatchewan community I'm now calling home.

Here's the front of the house.

Some boats resting on the shore of the lake. Just about every family owns a boat or two it appears, so no one is afraid of their boats being stolen.

The co-op in town. It's the only place for several hours around to get groceries, so it's great when you run out of milk and can't go to La Ronge for groceries or Prince Albert for a week or more, but definitely WAY more expensive then buying elsewhere. You just have to decide, is it cheaper to buy there or hop in the car? Usually best to buy a big load every 2-3 weeks and pick up milk and bread here in between.

 The fire station.

The community hall and offices I believe. It's also where Mr. C can get our car registered, and possibly get some work.

The nursing station is in this building.

 Here's a look at the shore of the lake.

And my daughters feet in the lake for the first time. She really didn't want to get her feet out, lol.



And of course, here's an image of my school (the elementary building, the high school is in a separate building)
 Here's our playground.

I LOVE this sign I found on the inside door of the co-op. If you know anything about teaching in Canada's Northern communities, you know it's hard to keep the kids in school, so this shows that the community is trying to keep them there so they can get an education.


That's it for today, more to follow soon!
