I learned – all through today. It was pure torture I tell you, pure torture 🙂 It was just complete anarchy. First place, Doukhobor, set in Veregin – population of a grand total of 42. Then, Kamsack, the town near a mountain of ducks a.k.a. Duck Mountain. (At least I think it’s near there).
First I had to get up early. It’s a normal thing to do, on school days!! Not on a WEEKEND!! I’ve been doing this all weekend. At around 9 o clock , my parents dragged me along to the car ( not literally though :)) We set off. It took about 45 minutes to an hour to get there, but we passed the time with music!! Ahh good ole music to rock and wake up your mind.
We arrived at Doukhobor National Heritage Village. The main building was locked so we called the museum. A man came to unlock all the buildings for us.
My favourite part out of all of it was when we went into the schoolhouse/banquet hall. There were a whole bunch of benches in the back and chairs in the front. I said while pointing at the benches “Poor people section” and then I pointed at the chairs and said “Rich people section” It was a hit with my parent’s……………… I guess you had to be there. It was funny.
After we took a tour of Veregin – population 42 – a minute later we completed the tour.
We then took off to the ‘ Garden Of Saskatchewan’ a.k.a. Kamsack. I found a house there that reminded me of a house in Mississauga. We also went to the Kamsack museum. I saw so many things, like an Ontario College of pharmacists diploma, Old toys, old guide and scout uniforms, olden days gas pump and many more.
It wasn’t the weekend I was hoping for, but it was cool 🙂
