We finally retrieved our camper from storage as the restrictions put in place for Covid-19 were relaxed. Returning to our storage unit to we reload our travelling items back into the various compartments.
Eventually we hit the road after sorting out some of our personal business. Travelling north to Lacombe to visit the World’s Largest Fishing Lure, these Lures are manufactured in Lacombe and shipped all over the world for anglers to use.
Staying in Edmonton for approximately a week while finishing up personal business, visiting friends and Catherine’s Mother before heading east. The next stop would be the town of Mundare where we stopped in at Stanwichy’s to purchase some Kubasa and Pierogi’s. For those that do not know these are foods brought to Canada with the influx of people from the Ukraine. We also bought a rack of freshly BBQ’d pork ribs to have that evening for dinner, as usual delicious!
Stewart would sometimes call in at Mundare on his way home from one of the Projects he worked on in Northern Alberta and pick up some goodies to take home.
While here in Mundare we visited the World’s Largest Kubasa Sausage.
While in Mundare this attraction we came across a display for the Buffalo Project.
As we strolled around the main street, we noticed there was also some street art on display celebrating the towns heritage.
From here we set off for Vegreville for a couple of nights to visit the Pysanka Project, this is a huge Ukrainian painted Easter Egg. There is a campground on the grounds of this display where we would stay.
Next day we would be catching up with some friends of Catherine’s family, Rhonda and Myron for a visit. They also own a local Car Museum that we checked out. Myron has over 100 cars in the area and another 100 to be picked up from an investor that sold out.
After a great visit it was time to continue on, the next stop would be Andrew, here we visited the largest Mallard in the World.
This was a quick photo op then onto our next destination. This was to be Smokey Lake; this was to see the largest Pumpkin in the world.
While here, we visited the railway station, this is part of the Iron Horse Trail. The tracks have been removed and gravel laid to form a Walking/Biking/ATV/Snowmobile path to be used all year round.
Another photo op, then off to our last destination of the day, Vilna to see the largest Mushrooms in the world.
From here we set off to fined a camping spot for the evening.
