Off to the Ponoka Trade Fair via Rimbey! It's more scenic past Sylvan Lake and Bentley than Hwy 2, you see. In truth, I swung by to log the brass cap before the logging rules change. Mama Shark was along for the trade fair but is good natured about being hijacked, rerouted and delayed when she travels with us! She was forewarned this time that we would be going to Ponoka via Rimbey and back to Red Deer through Mirror and was still eager to come. Such a sweet muggle!
Our drive had started in sunshine, moved to sunshine on a rain misted windshield and progressed to wipers on steady slow to keep the now darkly cloudy sky, not to mention the road, in clear view. As we neared Rimbey we noticed that oncoming traffic didn't have their wipers on and the road was drier; by the time we got here the sun had peeked out. It shone into the easily located hole that's home to this battered cap and glistened on the rain on its surface. A few errant blades of grass to move out of the way and a wipe of the cap to diminish the watery shine and photographic proof of the find was recorded. Thanks for the cap, outforthehunt, which showed how much Rimbey has grown since it was more familiar.
