We received a phone call sometime ago and were informed that Dad had purchased a new boat. "A BOAT!" We exclaimed in shock. "But there are no lakes, or rivers in southern Saskatchewan. It's a desert: trees, cacti, tumbleweeds... I hope you know that the rolling waves of a dune are altogether different from the rolling blue waves of a lake."

As it turns out we had a lot to learn about the geography of a quint city we thought we had figured out. Swift Current really does have a lake and I can't think of a better way to spend my summer in the scorching hot south than boating around and 'cannonballing' with a bundle of cute kids .
