Big Chill 2010

Lake Winnipeg

We drive and fly to Winnipeg and gather on the southeastern shore of Lake Winnipeg, at Victoria Beach. Shelley and Jim’s cottage, on the water, big views, huge deck. A sweet town to walk or bike to. The Moonlight Cafe where Craig buys a hat, his second. He wore the first one out.  

Shelley’s nephew Dean, his girlfriend Jenny and her friend show up for an evening. He has a gas-powered blender that he uses to make wicked margaritas. We dance under the stars on the deck to Van Morrison’s “Moondance”. 

It is such a quintessential prairie lake experience. The smell of algae. The sunsets. The storm. Perfect for us prairie people. Jeanne & Ron our honorary prairie folk. It’s good to reconnect to our childhood roots and do it with good friends.
