Pink Church @ Piapot

Having wondered for years what the town of Piapot (Saskatchewan) had to offer, I finally turned off the Trans Canada on my way by, and checked it out.  It’s barely a Hamlet, whose better days are long gone. Actually the place has the eerie feel of a ghost town, would make a great movie set for the “Halloween” movies. There’s not a lick of paint in the entire place, except for this fairly fresh coat of pepto bismol pink on the church! I’m thinking I have a new place to visit when I want to paint on location.

    Nicole, Thanks for your comment. I’ve just spent awhile on your web-site, and I sure WILL make a trip over there to see you. I intended to go to the saloon when I turned off there, but when I got there, had a fit of (unusual) shyness, and just did a drive-by. Very cool joint you have there. see you soon! Oh and I’m going to edit my post and put in your web-site so that people can visit you on-line.
