Entering Manitoba, through the Pembina, ND border crossing:

Some houses in the Wolesley neighborhood in Winnipeg, where I stayed:

While on a walk through Omand Park, I thought it would be cool to get a down-low photo:

Little did I know, what I thought was relatively stable clay had the consistency of quicksand. It was up to my thighs:

The graffiti on the bridge was artistic:

A rather elegant home on the south side of Assiniboine, which my host said was the "rich side":

Wolesley appears to be a "hipster" neighborhood much like Uptown in Minneapolis about 8 hours away:

Winnipeg had a ridiculous amount of traffic on the arterials:

The buildings outside East India Pub & Eatery reminded me of what I've seen in pictures of new upscale developments in Delhi:

If you ever get to Winnipeg, I would strongly recommend fasting the entire day and eating at the East India Pub and Eatery, as it is the largest Indian buffet I have ever laid eyes on. Chicken, beef, fish, lamb, even mussels are here. Not to mention the sweets bar, which isn't in this picture.

Did I just take a picture of Paul Schaeffer?

Winnipeg is truly a city of strip malls:

I was out for the day around Sedbergh, travelling by bus, and decided to get off on the spur of the moment. On the map was marked a church, a couple of miles walk away. I had no idea what I would see but it turned out to be an inspired decision to get off that bus.

This is here I got off. The building in the centre was a church; it's now closed for worship but still open to visitors.



The view in the other direction.



This was a railway viaduct; the railway's closed and there's no access to the viaduct.





The road I had to walk up. Spot the milestone on the left - this used to be a turnpike road and the milestone dates from the early 19th century.



Borrow Bridge 5 3/4 miles, Kirkby Lonsdale 10 3/4 miles.



Nice church....



...with stunning views.



The day had been damp with low clouds but while I was at the church the sun came out over the Howgill Fells.







This made the walk to get there well-worthwhile.
