Canadian Art Trek: Reston, Manitoba

April 19, 2013

Day 7: Reston, Manitoba

On my drive from Brandon to Weyburn I stopped at the small village of Reston. Reston is situated near the Saskatchewan borderImage to the west and North Dakota to the south. I was craving a home-cooked breakfast and decided that the Dennis County Cafe looked inviting. The meal was fantastic and it also provided an opportunity to talk to local residents.  A  gentleman approached to chat once he realized that I was from Ontario. He had left Ontario quite a few years ago (from the Fergus area) and ran the local Reston bakery which was a very busy spot in its heyday. The bakery has since burned down and the gentleman has retired. As I drove away from town, rows of pumpjacks were apparent. The main economy in this region is oil and agriculture.
