My favourite place in all of Manitoba is Grand Beach. It seemed crazy that I hadn't been all summer. We've all been so busy and my friend Kd was leaving on her own adventure soon so it seemed like a quintessential summer beach day wasn't in the books.

However, someone suggested that we squeeze in a breakfast on the beach and we all agreed that that sounded like a fantastic idea. We woke up early, stopped for coffee, drove an hour, lugged our grill on to the beach...and then realized we had the wrong size propane tank... drove to a nearby town, got a new propane tank, lugged our grill back to the beach, and finally enjoyed pancakes with strawberry sauce, bacon, and fresh fruit.

My heart was happy.

  3. Glad you stuck with it... and for such a fun result! I'm definitely more of a pancake person than a burger person ANY time of day. Yum. :-)

  6. I like that you guys went out to get the right tank instead of just saying "forget it" and picking up food somewhere. Shows dedication! haha

    Looked like a great morning!
