A fun filled month of motorbike travel and guests, some sailing, friends, cabins, organic farms, islands, ferries, cideries, hockey, memories and other stuff that makes my life worth living, lol.
First road trip on Blue Demon. Out to Paliser Park for the August long weekend with Tom, Erin, Mary and Matt and the grandparents Dave and Sheryl. A great spot off the river dammed up and turned into lake Diefenbaker which only about half of Saskatchewan knows about, haha. Saskatoon berries, Rums, Crib and Boat rides were some of the highlights. And I tried my first electric bike. And my first puncture repair on the side of the highway!
