Here is a beautiful morning sunrise, which now occurs between 9:00 and 9:30. Thank-goodness the sunrise is getting earlier each day.
In contrast to much of southern Saskatchewan, La Ronge is not in the middle of flat prairie. We do not have road networks that resemble graph paper when mapped. The terrain is too rocky and irregular for any of that neat and tidy north-and-south stuff. Thus, our house sits at an irregular angle, looking out onto the lake over our neighbour's house. Using Google Earth and the location of the sunrise, I'd say we face southeast. Who needs a compass? Well, we do have a GPS. You never know when you might get lost in your own garden.
