Winnie The Pooh Is Named After Where? 01/07/14

Another cold day here in Winnipeg so I’m going to head indoors and check out the  permanent Winnie the Pooh museum on the second floor inside of the pavilion.

Temp -25°C feels like -35°C

The Pavilion is looking great today with the blue sky. Let's go!
