SOOC Saturday-tourist

Today we were tourists at Maple Creek, the guys went to their horse sale, {it is the annual Cowboy Poetry gathering and show in the town of Maple Creek, Saskatchewan}. Our friend Morley is a regular poet and MC for this annual event.

It is also a great place to get some custom-made cowboy and western gear..henceforth the new chaps my husband purchased today!


Later on Shirley and I visited the Cypress Hills Winery located a few miles outside Maple Creek. It was a hot afternoon, but under a tree on a nice patio overlooking the vineyard and the pond we sipped back a lovely tasting Saskatoon berry glass of wine.... what a beautiful exciting visit...imagine our own winery right here in southwestern Saskatchewan!

I always like to get a shot or two when horses are around. I thought the trees turning colour would turn out on this video Nada. ...
