Regina and Area
Saskatchewan SK, Canada
A personal travel view
|I spent ten months in Regina during 1996 to 1997. I made other brief visits in 1999 and 2011.|
|The winter that I spent in Regina was their third coldest on record.
I was surprised at how easily I survived the winter cold.|
That is largely due to the great amount of sunshine. Regina records half of the cloudy days of those counted in my West Coast hometown. The annual rainfall is just 11 inches. Summers are normally warm, dry and pleasant.
|When this city warms up it has some nice advantages. The cost of real estate is reasonable and the local economy is booming. |
This is the capitol of Saskatchewan and has a fine university.
The biggest claim to tourist fame is the RCMP national training centre and museum.

|The snow can be quite stunning when the sun shines through the frost on the trees.|
I lived on Retallack Street. This late winter view was
from my apartment window.
|Being the provincial capitol, the city provides a fair amount of cultural activities. The Legislative Buildings are perched on the shore of Wascana Lake. The big skies here produce spectacular sunrises.|
