From Yorkton to Kenora

In order to get to Kenora ON from Yorkton  SK we travelled through Manitoba. We would not be stopping much as our schedule was tight.  We stopped in Minnedosa for fuel and asked for a recommendation as to where to eat. We were told Maushies Family Restaurant, but when we got there they had just closed so we decided to try the Lorelei Restaurant at the Valley Motor Lodge.

The town of Minnedosa has changed a lot since I was a young girl - or maybe my memories are fuzzy. The town seemed shabby, unloved with uncared for streets - the town I remember seemed so alive and vibrant.
While the town may have changed some, the valley with the Little Saskatchewan river was as pretty as I remembered it to be.

The food at the restaurant we very affordable and very tasty. The decor of the restaurant amazed me. It was beautiful - very different in fact from the outdoor appeal of the hotel.

From Minnedosa we headed east to Winnipeg where we fuelled up at the Flying J on the West side. 
Our stop was brief - fuel and bathroom as we needed to get to Kenora and our room for the night. The next morning was to be a big morning for me. We were hooking up with the Motorcycle Ride for Dad National Cross Canada Run!

Next stop, Kenora, until later...ride safe
