This is definitely not a travel blog.
Usually I have to be dragged out of my quiet
little world here with a heavy duty blindfold and LOTS of alcohol.
So there I was, blindfolded and barely standing.
This trip was a little unexpected and somewhat spontaneous.
My kids thought aliens had invaded my body.
They asked me what our family safety code word was and
I must have gotten it right cuz next thing I know,
I was sitting on the back of this bad boy, ready to
start our journey to the most bizarre destination.....Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada.
Why would we go there?
To visit The Tunnels of Moose Jaw!
They were amazing!
This was the waiting area and gift shop.
I was ogling all the beautiful woodwork and brick, until I looked up and saw this
Truly amazing, and these weren't the fake ceiling tiles either. You can see my fascination for tiles and how I used them in my own home Here and Here!
When the tour started, I took this picture......
and was quickly told that there were no cameras allowed.
But I had to show you this amazing cupboard. What blogger wouldn't want to get their hands on this. Maybe use it for some amazing storage in your craft room or a wonderful addition to a kitchen....am I right? Can you see it in your house?
This was the Passage to Fortune tour, which was probably the best tour, IMHO.
A shameful blemish in Canadian history!
The other tour, Chicago Connection, was more for entertainment. I must confess that I was ignorant to the fact that Canada also shared in the prohibition act. Supposedly Al Capone spent time in these tunnels.
Now for some free advertising for The Days Inn in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan.
A big shout out to Misty, the supervisor at Days Inn, who NEVER did bring up the proper remote for our TV!
I thought a suite meant a separate bedroom??
This post was not sponsored from Days Inn, in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan.
We overpaid for this "suite" all on our own.
Both fascinating tours.
If you happen to get to Moose Jaw Saskatchewan, I would tell you to do both tours. Well worth the $25.00 entrance fee.
Now for the looooong ride home!
Thank God prohibition was abolished.
Oh how I wish I would have stolen the pillow from our overpriced, understaffed, poorly maintained hotel room!
