A Last Dash Of Summer

It’s unseasonably warm in Alberta and especially in Edmonton. So having the day off we wanted to make the most of it and after doing a few errands in Spruce Grove we drove down to Devon to do a little river-side stroll. We got ourselves some lunch at the local grocer and headed down to the North Saskatchewan River.

Here, deep in the river gorge, the warmth was kind of trapped and created an oven-like effect.

Molly enjoyed the nice walk as well. It is truly a very beautiful spot.

And a little update on us finding a place to live in this city.
It seems that 80% of all rentals are to be pet-free. And those which accepts pets are either for small pets only or they have 1 year lease conditions only. Or they are beyond reasonable financial means.
So for now we have decided that we will try a full-service RV-Park. For the fee they charge we could rent a nice home in New Brunswick. But we are in high-priced Alberta and have to deal with it. We will build a skirting around the trailer and put a heating lamp underneath to keep the trailer from freezing. The park has nice washrooms and even a store. And they are friendly behind the counter, which means a lot to us.


  1. Wondering if you've found a place to live yet ?

    1. No, Denise, we haven't. Molly is the problem as no one accepts pets.

    2. Peter, Thought I had your e-mail address but can't find it ?? My Cousin just got back to me with this message:

      " I will ask around...lots of people around here head to Arizona. Can't think of anyone off the top of my head right now but I will put it out there!"

  2. Good luck with finding suitable accommodation for the cold winter months.

  3. HOw many months do u need, having trouble sellling Dad's condo
