A typical household enjoys and refers to the four seasons as Spring, Winter, Summer and Fall, but at my house we celebrate these seasons very differently.  They are affectionately known as ice fishing season, fly-fishing season, bow hunting season and rifle hunting season.  Yes, I married a modern day Grizzly Adams.

When I first met my husband, I wasn’t quite sure what I was getting myself into.  For our second date he thought he would surprise me and take me on an adventure, only providing minimal clues – dress warm and wear waterproof clothes and footwear.  I was getting a bit nervous as I saw the city skyline disappear and open up to nothing but rolling hills and wheat fields…where on earth was he taking me?… there were no shopping centers or restaurants out here, never mind risking getting seen in rubber boots and sweatpants!  A few hours south of the city he pulled into a grassy area with marshland all around, he then proceeded to open the tailgate of his truck and pull out a picnic basket and a rifle…we were going duck hunting! I have to admit, that won me over, and 27 years later we still enjoy the great outdoors every chance we get.

Canada has one of the most spectacular landscapes, encompassing scenic coastlines, sprawling prairies, imposing mountains, and untouched forests. We are truly blessed to call this great country home!
