The next eccentricity on my list is how much I enjoy visiting strange landmarks and points of interest. In this picture I'm in Caroline, AB visiting my figure skating hero's arena. I suppose this really isn't too much of a quirk, but it's hard to find people who like to do the same thing! A favourite place of mine is the UFO landing pad in St. Paul, AB. I haven't been there for a few years now but it's always a good laugh (and no, I haven't yet been abducted...). Around Sylvan, there is a little town called Markerville, and there is an old creamery where they used to make butter etc. I think it's a pretty cool place...I love history and buildings that have a story behind them. I think this comes from my mom and dad. When Sean and I were kids we used to get dragged around to all sorts of museums and "historic points of interest" during our summer holidays. I know that at times we would get a little antsy, but in the end we usually enjoyed the learning. So thanks mom and dad for forcing us to get some culture and appreciate history!
