Day 5 – Saskatoon to Regina, Virden, Winnipeg (839km)

Goodbye Saskatchewan and hello Manitoba. We drove a total of 839km from Saskatoon to Regina, Virden, and Winnipeg. As you can tell, most of the day was spent on the roads.

We had a bit of extra time in the morning so we decided to go back to the Saskatoon House to say hi to those we did not meet the other night and to say thank you one more time. Although brief, it was a pleasure to meet regular House volunteers Nettie and Emma.

Many thanks to John at CTV Saskatoon for inviting us for a studio recording and to Kim for lining this up for us. Special thanks to Tammy for being around for the support.

The CTV clip is titled Tour of Ronald McDonald House:

Our next stop was in Regina where we stopped at the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan, the third on our list across the ten provinces. Mark managed to capture some nice shots of the building and its garden. Then we were off to Manitoba with a gas pit stop in Virden before spending the night in Winnipeg.

Next stops are the Ronald McDonald House in Winnipeg, the Ronald McDonald Family Room in Winnipeg, and Kenora.
