Oot and Aboot in Canada Eh! – Day Five

IMG_0229I’ve been told that since I’m here in Winnipeg, it would be a crime not to have the much talked about, Jeanne’s Cake. Jeanne’s Bakery seems to be quite famous locally.

So I looked up the different places I could get this “amazing” Jeanne’s cake from and found I could get it from our local supermarket.

They only had one choice “white” and they were only available from the freezer.

We had some for breakfast (naughty) and my verdict?

 

It was ok. I definitely liked the biscuit base. The icing wasn’t significantly different to other icing I’ve had but maybe that was because it was still a little frozen.
So yes, I did like it, but no, I probably wouldn’t go out of my way to have it again.

We went back to Kildonan Park this afternoon and this time walked through. It was so warm we saw topless men. There was lots of Summer clothing out!


And we went to the popular witch’s hut but it was still closed even though it said it was opening in May


This is supposed to be the witch’s hut from the Hansel and Gretel fable and if you don’t know what that is then I feel sorry for you!

We also came across these painted rocks which we later learned were part of a Winnipeg Community called “Winnipeg Rocks”

They have a pretty cool Facebook Page if you’re interested.

Speaking of nice weather and enjoying the sun, we came across an older couple who from a distance, were sure were sunbathing in the nude. The “blue” you can see is actually a book and we weren’t sure if there was any clothing behind that.

But as we got closer it became more clear

Tonight we plan to enjoy a little piece of home and yes, I’m looking forward to it!
