Drove across bridge to Campobello, New Brunswick, Canada To visit FDR childhood house, where he was very active, and while there came down with polio, and was paralyzed thereafter. It is also the ONLY International Peace Park in the World. IInteresting see both Countries flags out the window, and flown at same level. Visited the beach where 18 foot waves create smooth rocks on the beach. Last saw a ukelele band from Univ. of Maine performing in a coffee shop there.

Old Grain Elevator @ Sunset in Denzil, SK; Canada

After dinner in town, decided to stay at Denzil campground since Denzil hotel is closed. So took a walk towards sunset around town and saw a cool old grain elevator just at sunset. Lots of clouds as a storm was also coming in.

Denzil goes to Denzil, Saskatchewan, Canada!

We've been trying to come here for a few years now. Arrived around 4 pm and very small town. In grocery store, met Village Clerk, who gave us some local items. Also, received special Village Tour and Museum tour. Along with Church and Cemetery. Village of Denzil used to have 500 kids in school. Now the school is closed.

But still a beautiful town, with nice crisp Canada temperatures, and beautiful clouds for storm coming in. The old grain elevator was very pretty at Sunset. and the outdoor building with Denzil on it, is an outdoor Ice hockey building and curling practice area.

US Canada border time, and Canada has oil fields?

This border patrol looks brand new. Both Canada and US sides questions why are you visiting Canada. And we said to see Denzil, SK. On Canada side, they said Oh your namesake.
