Intergenerational trip to Winnipeg – lots of art, walking and heat by Ann Treacy

This week we took a trip to Winnipeg – Aine, Kate, me, Grandma and Grandpa. We went to check in on Lily and bring her home. And we went to check out University of Manitoba for Kate. (She is starting there this fall.)

It was great to see Lily and her apartment, which she took great care to clean for us!

Lily lives in the West End of Winnipeg – which has one of the largest collections of murals. I learned through the beauty of Google that the murals focus on heritage, local heroes, culture, community, commerce and cuisine. They do spruce up the area, which is pretty mixed. Lots of students and I’ve noticed community services and shelters in the area too.

I did a walk through St Boniface. I hadn’t been through that area before. In fact, I hadn’t actually crossed the bridge before. There is a gorgeous cathedral in the area with many very cool statutes and tombstones.

Otherwise there was a lot of walking and spying of lots of art in the city. We saw Indian City play at the Human Rights Museum for Summer Solstice and went to a Farmer’s Market. Otherwise it was a lot of getting to know Winnipeg.

What a great experience. I have not been. I spent a week in Quebec City and now think that might be a next trip. The St. Anne de Beaupre catherdrel was magnificent. I stayed a bit north of the city but it was easy to come into town. No traffic, lots of parking. A great place to go.https://www.quebecregion.com/en/businesses/attractions/religious-sites/sainte-anne-de-beaupre-shrine/

I hope to be able to stay at the Hotel Frontenac on my next visit. I’ll need to do lots of pet sitting to save up!!
