Steven's small one-man sailing canoe he rigged himself will fit inside our boat Chelsea. We'll be trailering Chelsea behind the Subaru. With the little sailing canoe he'll have the opportunity to explore on his own . . . and with it's tuned-up lawn mower engine, Chelsea can take all of us lots of places - even across the river to Kingston! Remember, we are going to be on an island! Since the family cottage is directly on the St. Lawrence River - mouth of Lake Ontario, the availability of boats is a high priority for Steven : ) Below you'll see the bunkhouse of the cottage to your left.
Below - the Deming's Dock was originally constructed by Steven's great grandfather and updated by his Dad in the 1960's. Kingston, Ontario is across the way.
Looking from the big house - that is the drive shed. The cottage we share with Steve's brothers is on the other side of it.
Steven's grandmother's garden at the big house.
Something new in 2009 was added to the farmer's cow fields - wind turbines!
walking down Third Line road . . . I had just taught Asia how to do a "High 10!"
The cottage steps that look out over the river, towards Kingston - 3 1/2 miles away.
Getting our boat "Buzzy's" motor ready . . . you see Asia and Chloe keeping their distance!!
such cutie pies... they are sitting in one of our driveways!
The motor is ready so off we go! Steven has had this boat since he was a kid.
In 2009 we trailered the melonseed sailboat my dad built up to Canada. Here is Steven paddling it around the dock to where we can get in, take off and go sailing.
Asia is ready to go!
me and Chloe too ; )
Simcoe island is directly in front of us.
I think you can see why we like wolfe island . . . . life is much quieter there.
This year my son Decklin and his partner Tina will spend a week with there with us too. : )) so nice. The internet speed is very scarce on the island with only dial-up. I will turn my attention to other things I think. You may hear from me again before we leave - but if not, don't worry!
And there are also earlier photos on my original web site. They are from 2005-2008 and one photo shows me finding my art on the cover of Expression Magazine for the first time, in a bookstore in Kingston, Ontario!!! Enjoy and thanks for visiting, lenna
