Canada 9 July: Taber, Alberta - Gull Lake, Saskatchewan
Saskatchewan Prairie Spirit
After about 30km the scenery changed dramatically and we arrived into a paradise-like Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park
View from the Ivan's Restaurant at the Resort Inn in Cypress Hills Park, Saskatchewan
And Ivan's Restaurant treated to a complementary scruptious lunch...
...offered by Wes Eng, the owner of the Cypress Hills Resort. His father Ivan established the resort in 1987 - the year that Peace Run started.
Thank you to Wes and his lovely wife Kim (who is also a runner and might take us for a trail run next time) and chef Rolando.
We offer our Certificate of Appreciation to David Fletcher who organised this event with Shagabec Camp with great enthusiasm
Time to say good bye. We had a great afternoon, thanks campers and councellors of Shagabec!
As you tought us: "Bravo, bravo, bravissimo, job well done, zowie...!"
Saskatchewan's hospitality: delicious home made pizza from all local ingredients offered to us at Decades Dinner in Gull Lake, Saskatchewan. Special thanks to Sherry and Luke for your warm hospitality and delicious first class pizza. Good luck with the remainder of your 50's style renovations, the finishing touch to great food.
Gull Lake Mayor Blake Campbell and Craig and Layla Baird encouraged us with their presence during a campfire storytelling evening - there's so much to share

We are thrilled they have produced a short film on the Peace Run and amazed they were able to do it so quickely. You can view it here.
