We went boondocking again for a few days near Sundre, Alberta, Canada in the Bearberry Valley at a place we call Horsey Meadows. The weather was perfect, with very few bugs and the dogs loved it. The Feral horses and some cows came to visit us as usual.

WHOA! Taken from our campsite.

“The Wild Horses of Alberta Society (WHOAS) was formed as a nonprofit society in 2002 after public outcry over the destruction of several wild horses that lived in the foothills and mountains of the Eastern slopes of Alberta. For the past 13 years WHOAS has been working on solutions for wild horse population management and has always felt that the Alberta wild horses require proper management and protection.”– Wild Horses of Alberta

The view from inside our camper.

We recently added a mirror as a back-splash to our camper’s kitchen sink, which makes the camper look lighter and bigger inside as well as reflecting the outside.

I tried out something different, taking photos through an old frame which I got from a thrift store, but I have to experiment some more 😉

One day we made fried fish in batter, we used Rock fish, with a batter made from flour, herbs, spices and then dipped the fish in a whisked raw egg.

We fried the fish in hot sunflower oil on our Coleman stove, in a cast iron chicken pot/pan.

We use a STABIL splatter screen from Ikea which is stainless steel. The handle can be folded down to save space when storing.

Done.

We served the fish with potato wedges, lemon juice and mayonnaise. Next time we will try to make our chips as well.

      Thank you for the visit, I’m glad you liked them, the canola fields were stunning, unfortunately we could’t stop for more photos because of our caravan. We never get tired of the horses. You should come and visit, it’s a great country 😉 I’m glad I discovered your blog as well, thanks to Cleo Horton. @RuthBH2Day
