In a house, beside a church, in a field an hour southwest of Edmonton.
When someone with a GPS comes by and gives me the coordinates, Iâ€™ll pass them on to you. But until then its really tough to say where we are.
But, its good. The people have been generous and helpful, the space is wide open, and the neighbours are silent. The house is larger than we are used to, so we have to yell louder to find where the others are. And I asked and got the rundown on the wildlife. Mostly the Coyotes will leave us alone, the skunks, and there are many this year, are unafraid of you so keep your distance, the many deer need to be watched for, especially at night when they move to the trees for sleep. If something needs to be shot, call the neighbour. Good to know.
Weâ€™ve been working to get settled, and itâ€™s taken me most of the day to get Internet here. Seems on windy days you can loose the Internet, and phone for a while. Today was really windy.
Perhaps a couple of pics to keep you interested. And when I fix the wifi Iâ€™ll stream a bit of video for you.
Iâ€™m off to have a shower, in my en suite, then to bed. I never thought Iâ€™d say that.
Oh, and the stars are simply awe inspiring. Tonight we could even see the milky way. Jean and many others were right, the rural life is very different, but it has the potential to be amazing.
So take care out there in the distance.
Nite. From the field.
