A walk down Main from Inkster to Kingsbury (or thereabouts).
A quick stop at Candies & Curiosities—likely the cutest shop in Winnipeg Beach—before a lovely day at Ponemah.
Drive around 15 minutes west from Winnipeg Beach and you’ll find the perhaps the oddest choice for a roadside attraction you’ve ever seen—a massive mosquito sculpture. The cruelest of cruel jokes, the statue can be found in Komarno (“mosquito infested” in Ukrainian), the self-confessed mosquito capital of Manitoba.
After the dreary start to my day in Brandon, the sun eventually came out and continued to shine beautifully until night fall.
In addition to the skyline-dominating McKenzie Seeds Building, one structure I found myself drawn to while in Brandon was the 8th Street Bridge. As I later learned, the bridge has been condemned, and there are no current plans in place to replace it.
A cloudy start to my day in Brandon back in late May. This is the first of three or four Brandon posts…stay tuned!
