Day 93: Saskatoon to Plunkett

When Jesse checked his email this morning he read one from his cousin Carmen saying we were welcome to use her apartment for the afternoon and she could drive us to her parents farm in the evening – which was where we going to stay the night. We quickly accepted which gave us much more time to finish all the chores we had to do (which was quite a few, as often is the case in the larger cities).

We rode around the city visiting outdoor stores, grocery stores, pharmacies and the university to meet Carmen. Carmen gave us her apartment keys so we were able to relax a bit before she got off work and we all went to the farm. It was a very hot day, the hottest one we’ve experienced so far, so we were happy to not have a strenuous ride ahead of us.

At the farm we met with Carmen’s parents. Linda (Jesse’s dad’s cousin) was waiting for us and after a chatting and a great dinner we went to retrieve Gary from the field who was busy spraying the crops and avoiding the hot afternoon sun. After a late evening of chatting and going through photo albums we were happy to sleep in the cool basement.
