Mid-day we enter the province of Manitoba We arrive at our destination in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and are greeted by Dale Frederickson at his front gate. We'll be camping in Ken's and Dale's camper for the next two nights.
June 22: This is the Canadian Mint in Winnipeg where they not only - make Canada's coins but also the coins of up to 80 other countries. We go for the tour of the Mint, something you can't do at a U.S. mint.  - The tour proved to be very interesting, but no cameras were allowed inside. Larry and Dale at the Forks National Historic Site in downtown Winnipeg. - This is a 9 acre park at the Junction of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers. Bill and Dale at the Forks.  The park has a river walk, theme pavilion, shops and restaurants and a skateboard plaza.
