Sunday Paul, Olga, Tien and Minna headed home. It was great to have some time together and we appreciated their help in collecting the sap.

Before leaving we took one last walk down to the lake. You can see how happy Freckles was to be able to roll in the snow.

After lunch we walked down to check on the neighbours sap boiling. They only do a few bottles each year so need just a small fire-pit. 

Then it was on to see Jim's evaporator. He did an excellent job of building an evaporator that will last forever. Nice job Jim.

Yesterday it was in to town for supplies. I noticed the waterfall is still frozen. Looks like another month before we see it disappear.

Tomorrow Don and Carol arrive to help us with the sap collecting and boiling. It is wonderful to have family drop by when they can to help and share in the work.

Enjoy your coffee and thanks for stopping by.
