The Heavenly Scoop


***Update - The Heavenly Scoop is open again!!!***

While enjoying a quick stopover in Kelwood Manitoba, the girls operating the Harvest Sun Café mentioned this café up the road that serves the best ice cream in the area.  


Since we were on our way to look for Skanes Crossing, we were heading up that way anyways.  The decision was made to stop by this café for a quick coffee and possibly some ice cream. 


Oh…did I mention that this café runs out of an old church and is called, The Heavenly Scoop?


Yup, all puns aside this place is truly one of a kind.


Surprising in its form but, not surprising at all, was the polite rural town service that was given to two city folk.  If my memory serves me correct, you can even book some time to play mini-golf on the adjacent lot run by the café. 


As the snow has finally fallen, I can only dream of heading back to Ochre River in the summer for some pew sipping latte goodness.




The Heavenly Scoop is located in The Village of Ochre River, just off the North East corner of Riding Mountain National Park, a hop, skip and a jump away from Dauphin Manitoba and 300km’s away from Winnipeg.


You have to turn right off of Highway #5 and it’s one of the first buildings on your right as you drive in.  Check the map below for location.

Ashley I can't speak universally since this is my first novel (Elixir was a co-venture so it was a litlte different) but I know in my case, we absolutely felt confident sending out the ARC, and there's no regrets about that. Still, everyone at the publishing house knew that even at the ARC stage, it's not a finished product, and there are still changes to be made. Not huge changes, not changes that are going to affect the story but changes, for sure. On the author side, I think we always are going to find ways to make our work better. I remember an eternity ago, I thought the first draft of Populazzi was brilliant until I got my editor's notes. Then I re-read it with fresh eyes and saw all kinds of issues. I dove back in and made tons of new discoveries, changed some story beats, deepened characters, and completely immersed myself in it until I emerged with what I thought was the PERFECT version of the story until I got my editor's next set of notes and looked at it with fresh eyes once again. Sculpting really is the best metaphor. The first drafts required massive cuts to turn a giant rectangle of clay into anything resembling the shape of the finished sculpture. From there, each rewrite involved smaller and more precise cuts to hone the shape. The exciting part of the ARC rewriting process was that the knife I wielded was a scalpel, making litlte shaves and retouches that yes, make a big difference in the finished product but don't drastically affect what you see from a few feet away.Hmmm I may have let that metaphor get away from me
