Over the years as we’ve traveled, Andrew and I have created “informative” little on-location videos — little snippets of our current experiences. I’m very tempted to struggle to convey to you just how terrible I look/sound on video… but you know what? I won’t. I’m awkward, I’m lame, I know it, I’m over it. And so, here’s a video post from our day wandering around Kelwood under the hot Manitoba summer sun:
A few days earlier, we had just arrived home from spending 3 weeks in China, so we were still in vacation/exploring mode. After all our friends left early from Harvest Sun, Andrew and I stuck around, and had a LOT of fun just ambling around town together, exploring a town we’d never seen before. Here’s a bunch of pictures we took as we strolled.
I have eyes only for Andrew! (Also, his face is reflected in my sunglasses.)
An excellent Firebird parked near the home of the Old Puckers.
The well-cared-for Legion, complete with statue and flag.
“Wow!” Yes, that certainly sums it up: a now-defunct elementary school, repurposed as a car dealership.
Abandoned swings, found near the old elementary school/current used car dealership.
A wistful, lonely slide.
The Manitoba mountains. Yonder lies Riding Mountain National Park. You don’t know badly I wanted to run off down that road and explore further. Someday I’ll convince Andrew to join me in this, and it will be wonderful.
Beautiful landscaping in a public space. I’m losing my balance here. So graceful.
Kelwood Community Centre.
St. John’s Anglican Church / recording studio.
There are many well-cared for/resurrected homes in Kelwood. It’s truly fascinating. I felt the town was in the midst of a sort of revival… and many of those who attended Harvest Sun, may have actually been purchasing property and intending to stay. I could understand the attraction. Truly. Here I’ll leave you with the concluding portion of our Kelwood video series:
(You can tell Andrew’s totally coaching me.)
