Across Canada Roadtrip, Manitoba

Oak Hammock Marsh Interpretive Centre

This May I had a wonderful opportunity to help my friend Sarah drive across Canada with her 2 daughters (both under 4). Sarah needed a hand moving from PEI to Red Deer Alberta and offered to pick me up on her way through New Brunswick. How could I pass up the special opportunity to help a friend and see our big and beautiful Canadian provinces. So since this was my first time seeing west of Ontario, I thought why not continue the journey past Alberta and make plans to travel solo to Vancouver.


We left the Maritimes at the end of April, during a very unseasonably chilly spring. We will soon find out that Canada in general had an unusually late start to spring, even Alberta still had hints of snow! This is my epic 20 day roadtrip across Canada, from east coast to west!


Manitoba, May 4-5, 2014

We drove to Manitoba and stopped at the Travel Lodge in Winnipeg for the evening. The hotel had a beautiful tropical pool area with large warm pool, a toddler splash pool and a huge hottub surrounded by real trees and tropical plants. 

The next morning we took the girls to the Oak Hammock Marsh Interpretive Centre. It was a beautiful sunny day and we had a nice morning exploring and hiking around the marsh.

By early afternoon it was time to hit the road and drive to Saskatchewan. Next stop, Jana in Regina!
