Touring My Town, #5.

Early summer morning view of our lake.

Hi everyone and welcome back to another look at my town.  The pictures today are from the beginning of winter when there was only a tiny bit of snow on the ground.  Today we will look at a few general pics of the town from different angles showing that we are fairly modern around here even though we are kind of an isolated town.  Kind of funny calling this an isolated town and yet we are located on the Trans Canada Highway.  That’s the only highway going east to west and coast to coast in this large country of ours.  But still, we are in the far northern part of our province, even though this province goes much farther north than this town.  And people live up there too.  Maybe I will talk more of the isolated part another time.  Meanwhile, let’s take a look at some more pics of my town.IMG_0396

In the above photo we are looking north along our main street and the photo just below we are looking south on main street.IMG_0398

The next street over, in the photo below, we find at the corner a small restaurant called the Hungry Pug Cafe.IMG_0784

And, above, we have one of our senior citizens apartment buildings.  There is another one, the same size, just to the left of this one.  Both are scenically located next to the railroad yards.IMG_0801

Also next to the apartments is this wire enclosed walkway over the railroad yards for a safer crossing for residents on the north side of the tracks.IMG_5954

And here is a picture of Ye Olde Chip Truck, in business since 1957 and located at this spot since then.  The fries here are world famous and really are amazingly good.  I’m sure I could eat these every day.  Unfortunately it is located far from where I live.  Sigh.  Oh well, can’t have everything.😂😹

There is still more to show yet but that will have to wait for our next look in this series which will be next week.  I hope you are enjoying this tour of my town and that you will continue to join me each week as we look at more of this quiet (?) little town.  Until then, enjoy your day/evening and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

  2. You can delete these replies later. Sorry.
    I have deleted 4 times in 20 minutes. They keep coming back and I can’t get past their home page to see what they want from me…beside all my data.

    • Hi Chrissy. Sorry I can’t be much help, if you have a premium account then you can block their comments, but there is no way to block the user unless you have a business account. The only thing you can do is contact WP and let them know about it, they will check to make sure it’s a legitimate site. Wish I could be more help.

    • Thanks. Yep, there are a number of smaller towns and communities farther north, some with no roads into them except in winter when they finally open the winter roads.

  3. Did you said isolated town🙄I don’t think so. Look at the crowd, people live everywhere, irrespective of the climate people still live in such places ✨🤗 Beautiful place to live by except the climate 😉 Have a warm day and stay warm ✨☺️

    • It is isolated though, we are off in the middle of nowhere which makes the cost of living very high here. It costs a lot to ship goods to us so prices are high. The town is shrinking though, we had more people 10 years ago. Tourism is what keeps us going or this town would shut down. I think it’s the most beautiful place in Canada, in summer, but not winter.😂😂😹😹🙄⛄⛄
