Asia and Chloe say "we are ready!"

One of my favorite photos from our visit to Wolfe Island in Ontario, Canada -July 2009. This is the 2 person (and 2 dog!) Peterborough canoe -a hand made cedar strip canoe made by my father. In this photo we're about to take off on the St. Lawrence River in front of the Deming Cottage on Wolfe Island. Both Asia and Chloe have no fear of boating and jump right in and in fact whine and cry if Steven wants to go solo! My dad made the beautiful paddles and hand caned the seats as well - view the making of these boats HERE.

If you are so inclined to see the many, many photos Steven and I took during our 12 days there this year, the easiest way is this flickr slideshow --just click on that link and then click “show info” on the top of the screen if you want to see my comments and descriptions! enjoy!

  1. Wow! Great photos! And even a few of you doing art! What a peaceful vacation you must have had. But what are the white hands with rocks by the side of the road?

  2. Oh, they are SO adorable!! I'll have to wait till I visit the library to see more of your pictures but I'm really looking forward to seeing them. It sounds like you had a lovely and restful holiday!!

  3. Sharon, The white hands were some kind of art instalation on the side of the road. Our friend, Sherri Orr at Fargo's General store on the Island told us there was an instalation here -- 86 plaster hands, each holding a rock. There are 86 new wind turbines on the island . . . later, she told us the Mayor had them removed just 2 days after they were installed. You can see photos of the instalation by clicking here

  4. Oh Canada!!!! Beautiful, eh???
    Lenna thanks for sharing your pics with us. I have enjoyed seeing your wonderful vacation. The doggies look so darned happy, and the party, too much fun...Looks like a gorgeous spot to hang out.
