Yesterday we drove over to Camp Can-Aqua which is about 20 minutes from here. 

It's a summer camp for kids started back in the 60s but somewhere along the line they got into maple syrup production. 

Today they have over 30 km (18 miles) of tap lines running through the bush and tap over 3,000 trees.  They also sell maple syrup equipment and that was why were were there.

Unfortunately we couldn't find anyone around so will go back next week after we phone and make an appointment.

Five to six weeks from now the sap should be running and we should be boiling. I'll keep you posted as we get ourselves organized.

The picture in the top header ............. that's the way they go shopping in Cardiff. Snowmobiles are the way to get around up here this winter.

Thanks for stopping by and safe travels everyone.
