Tis that time of year again . . . Roadtrip
Day 1 2018 Grosse Isle
July 1 – Canada in Grose Isle
Starting again on the east side near Winnipeg, I was able to catch the Prairie Dog Express in Grosse Isle for the 2nd year in a round. There were hundreds of people on the steam train from Inkster Junction in northern Winnipeg. They to the 30 minute train ride, and enjoyed the farmers market, the museum, and the De Boomstam.
De Boomstam is a wonderful antique type music maker from 1911. It uses a deck of folded music sheets to activate pipes and drums when hand cranked by the operator. Sounds a lot like a larger calliope.
Then came the rain in late afternoon.
