Time in the sky

Saskatchewan is famous for its big skies. So it seems appropriate that the Regina airport would have an oversized skylight in its welcoming area.

But this skylight is more than just a big window in the ceiling. It’s a functioning sundial.

Happily, because the powers-that-be in Saskatchewan don’t believe in Daylight Saving Time, they never have to move the numbers backward or forward.

I’m visiting for two weeks, and hoping to be able to rely on the sun for my sense of time while I’m here, even if I don't have a sundial where I'm staying.
