Victoria Day - aka May Long - was almost a sacred holiday in my younger years, growing up in Prince Albert, SK. After finishing up my day shift as a Security Guard at the Gateway Mall, 6pm on Friday held the promise of sun, campfires, and Vanilla Ice on the stereo. We'd pack up the old '79 Pontiac Firebird with tents, pillows and as much...refreshment... as the cooler would hold. Then off to Emma Lake for 3 nights of shenanigans. I'd like to say it was mostly fishing in the lake, but anyone who was there know there was plenting of fishing going on at the local Sunnyside Bar too
With the advantage of 'wisdom' these days, this weekend now usually revolves around hitting some golf balls, doing the yardwork bidding of my sweetheart, and enjoying some time with the dogs. But we'll still fit in a campfire, for old times sake.
Please share your May Long memories below - I'd love to hear 'em! And to make some new ones, check out www.albertaparks.ca. Have a safe and fun long weekend everyone!!
