Kenora OntarioJuly 26 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C
I finally got out of Manitoba and have arrived in Kenora Ontario, a beautiful little town on the lake. The atmosphere here is way more welcoming. We still need masks but the town seems to want me here.
The town is a mix of old and new, with a focus on the lake and the fun that is connected to it.

He came to the bottom of the stairs and was contemplating his next move. I was up top, contemplating mine. I had my driver with me and was trying to decide if it was best to use it like a club, or break the end off and use it like a spear.

The rest of the game was pretty standard, until the 14th hole. My plaiying partner had quit at nine. I had been playing by myself, then at 14 the twins and Bob asked me to join them...Read more
