Weekend of Self-Care

There’s no doubt that we all need to getaway sometimes. I decided to pick up and get out of town last Friday to Kenora. I haven’t spent a lot of time there, but I know it’s beautiful and close. So… I got in this tiny car…

And started to drive!

At some point near the Whiteshell you hit the Canadian Shield. I love this area. The huge rocks and tall, skinny evergreens. It reminds me of the Rockies.

I stayed in a hotel right on the lakeside. Beautiful scenery for someone looking to relax.

While heading to get some liquor, I happened across this adorable little dog who was lost. I took her to the vet and they found her owners!

I drank some beer.

And was unimpressed by Huskie the Muskie.

I did some rural…

I did a lot more drinking and made some friends with the locals.

 

 

Which included the owner of the brew pub and a beautiful 23 year old boy. Swoon!

Safe to say I had somewhat of a hangover and no regrets dancing and drinking with young’uns. After I sufficiently nursed my headache and woozies with the mandated cure of greasy food and strong coffee, it was time to head home.

I’m slightly refreshed. Not entirely, but enough for now.
