The first will be the same, except we’ll work our way through the alphabet. The second and third will be different each time.
Hosted by Friday Finds and this is V4 or round 4!!!

Also playing along at ABC Wednesday

Eh to Zed

For this round of the alphabet I am going to celebrate Canada's 150 birthday by showcasing towns across the county.
To date I've been in the Maritimes and Ontario with my letters. Now we've gone to Alberta in the west and back east to Quebec.

Nipigon Ontario

I'd never heard of Nipigon until we went there last week as a stop on our road trip.

The chief industries in Nipigon are forest products, fishing, and tourism.

Nipigon is a setting off point for fishing excursions onto Lake Superior and the Nipigon River system leading up to Lake Nipigon. Fish varieties common to this area include Atlantic salmon, lake trout, speckled trout (the world's largest speckled trout was caught in the Nipigon River in 1915, weighing in at 14.5 pounds (6.6 kg), rainbow trout, walleye, northern pike, bass, and perch.

There's certainly plenty of sky in Saskatchewan, its license plates proclaim
Land of the Living Skies.


  1. I'd been through Nipigon before, but it has been years.

  2. We loved the big skies of Saskatchewan! Thanks for sharing your travel across Canada.

  3. I missed commenting last week - great shots here. I love the heron sculpture in particular.
