I remember when....
Going to my grandpa's house every Saturday for a sauna
|Outdoor Sauna in Hancock, MI|
As a family every Saturday evening we would all pack into the car and take a drive to grandpa's for our Saturday night sauna. Grandpa lived on an old dirt road in the hills ~ that is if you can have real hills in Saskatchewan. When we would turn off the main road onto Grandpa's road, dad would let one of us kids ride. When we were very little he would set us on his lap and as we got older we would be able to take the wheel by ourselves with dad sitting right beside us.
The sauna was an outdoor one without running water, similar to this one in the picture. The water was heated in a bucket that sat on the sauna stove. There also was a big bucket in the change room for cold water. The stove was wood burning and the place smelt so great once the stove was lit.
My grandfather died close to 30 years ago and it has been many years since I have been out to the farm. My uncle and his family lived on the farm after my grandpa past away and my cousin now still farms there. Although a sauna was built in the house, I am sure that the outdoor sauna still stands. I am going to have to visit there the next time I go home...
Such good memories....
