OFF TO THE BEACH!
Believe it or not, one hour away from Whateverpeg lay three kilometres of some the finest white sand beaches in the world!
Welcome to Grand Beach.
I know that a lot of foreigners think that this is the land of ice and snow. Even some Americans living right next to us in Minnesota and North Dakota imagine that we live in igloos and eat whale blubber. HUH?!
We have Fantastic Summers!
In fact Grand Beach was once voted by no less than Playboy Magazine
as one of the top ten beaches
in the world!
On hot summer weekends 20,000 people can swarm the place to soak up rays and cool off in Lake Winnipeg, the 11th largest lake in the world.
As a Prairie Boy I was fascinated with the ocean and the terrors that lay beneath the surface. In my mind the ocean or any body of water larger than the bathtub was crammed with killer fish waiting to eat people. Actually I have managed to swim in both the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean without being eaten.
Isn't this crazy?
Actually I will be chillaxin', reading my Psychology Today, and splashing away the hours with my youngest replicant and goodladywife....with one nervous eye scanning the horizon.....theme from jaws..da da da...
Yes the forecast is excellent
and there hasn't been a shark swimming here for millions of years.
