Joining up with Amy of Love Made My Home and her Five on Friday!
One: A new addition to Algonquin Park, this magnificent totem pole carved by Algonquin Elder, Dan Bowers. It stands at the East Gate park office. We only noticed it this summer, but I don't see a date on the accompanying signs.
Two: Camp Arowhon is a summer camp for boys and girls on Teepee Lake in Algonquin Park. We paddled past it on one of our canoe day trips. We could hear the kids chanting in the woods ... sounded very cool. At a mere $8,000 for six weeks, you too can send your child to this oasis of summer fun. It's been in operation since the early 1930's. I was never sent to summer camps, but I sure would have loved to have been sent to this one!
Three: An old wooden boat sitting in the shade waiting to get back into the lake. There's something so nostalgic about weathered wooden boats. Our canoe is carbon fibre to make it lightweight for portages. It weighs 35 pounds. However, the woodworker in my husband had to have a little bit of wood on it, so we got cherry trim.
Four: As we drive into Dorset on Hwy 35 we pass this interesting shed that someone has nailed their collection of metal tools all over the outside walls. I've always wanted to stop and take a photo, but usually forget. This summer as we whizzed by, I took a few quick shots. I wonder what this shed looks like on the inside.
Five: A couple of boat houses on Canoe Lake, along with an old log cabin (now a cottage) in the background.
Thanks for stopping by!
