GATHERING of the CLAN
Yesterday was special. It was brief but wonderful to have everyone here for a rare get-together. With Jim on the west coast, us in the north and others scattered throughout the GTA and beyond this was indeed a special day for everyone.
As always the food was delicious and everyone helped get the meal ready.
A toast to celebrate the occasion.
Pictures of recent family events were shared. Here Jim shares photos from Emma's wedding.
Owen enjoyed meeting everyone but feeding the fire was a greater attraction for most of the day.
A trip to the ice-cream parlor was the perfect way to end the day. Does anyone but Owen like "candy cotton" ice-cream?
Today everyone heads home and the house will be quiet once again. We will miss the fun and excitement but especially Owen who has been such a delight all week.
Safe travels everyone, thanks for coming and all the memories.
We are two retired Canadians living in an off grid passive solar home near Bancroft, Ontario. This is all new to us and we are surprised at how comfortable the house is regardless of the temperature outside. When not home we are usually travelling and exploring North America. We just bought a cargo trailer we plan to convert to a camper for our travels.
Mary loves to quilt and Art enjoys photography. We both enjoy camping, hiking, canoeing, travelling and cross-country skiing.
Come along with us and share our adventures as we experience life off the grid and down the road.
