The Trappist Monastery/St. Norbert Provincial Park

Just south of Winnipeg in St. Norbert is a cool slice of history...The Trappist Monastery, established in 1892 and used for 86 years by the monks of the Order of Cistercians of the Strict Observance...and across the highway, St. Norbert Provincial Heritage Park, where you can immerse yourself in Métis family life as it was during the late 1800s.  This will be a quick jaunt to get out somewhere close to Winnipeg (and I have a wedding to get to the night before...ha!)  NOTE...this falls on the Sunday of the Canada Day Long Weekend...so far I see no events happening on that day at either location, but if anything changes I will post.

Here's the plan:

-12:30p - Meet at the Tim Hortons at 2147 St. Mary's Road to collect $2 meetup fees and organize carpooling for those who need it
-1:00p - Leave for the Monastery first (maps will be given for those who need them)
-2:15p - Go across the highway to St. Norbert Provincial Heritage Park
-3:15p - Head back to Tim Hortons, then disperse!

    Hey Holly. Just looked at the map and the meeting place is really quite a bit out of my way. Can I just meet you there or do you really need my car??

    June 30, 2013

    • Holly T.

      You can meet us there.

    I'm going to try to find my tripod for this one...failing my ability to find it, any suggestions on what I might look for in a NEW one?

    June 12, 2013

      Also really watch out for the locks that secure the legs extended. I prefer the quick release but they have to hold securely.

      Also be careful of what it is made of. The old saying, "you get what you pay for" really does apply here. Talk to some of the pro's at a camera specialty shop, not a photo shop or a big box store, let them know your price range and they will offer examples. I bought what I thought was a decent tripod @ $75.00and within 5 uses, it broke. So I then I spent about $150 on the replacement and have had no issues so far. And it has a removable centre column so I can use it as a monopod if I really want to for quick shots around the yard.
