Back in the '40s, Manitou Beach, Sk. was a happening place to go. It's know as the dead sea of Canada with waters so buoyant, you need not even bother treading water. My grandparents even honeymooned there in style which is what prompted my mother and I to make a stop there in the off season. The cabins they originally stayed in are now being used as a camp but have maintained their old timey charm from yesteryear.
Time hasn't been kind to the lake itself. Between heavy rains and melting snow in the spring, the lake has overfloweth slowing inching its way up the beach and drowning the parks. The overcast off season lends to a very eerie feeling; I had willingly walked into a David Lynch-esque setting.
