20 Years From Now...

"20 YEARS FROM NOW," Mark Twain said, “you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than the ones you did.”THIS online journal is dedicated to our next 20 years!

Aylmer, Quebec

Today we once again crossed the Ottawa River into Quebec, but this time headed westward towards the former city of Aylmer. Why former? In 2002 it amalgamated into the city of Gatineau (part of Canada'a National Capital Region).

Exploring Ottawa

Last week John had a triple hernia operation and I doubt either of us imagined his recovery would be quite so swift. Needless to say, we're grateful for small miracles and while John took it easy for four straight days (I know, impressive, huh?) by day five he began to suffer from cabin fever (or perhaps I should say condo fever).

To Kayak or Not to Kayak? - Is that even a QUESTION?

July has been great weather-wise and we were fortunate to spend Canada Day as well as most of this month in Elliot Lake. While many evenings were spent as a couple chatting and socializing with friends, John did manage to kayak most days. Whether it was on Esten, Elliot, Dunlop, Depot or Cinder he made the rounds and enjoyed every single lake.

All Around Ontario

June has been a busy, enjoyable month with us travelling here and there to visit friends. And while we've lived in Ontario all of our lives it still never ceases to amaze us how large this province really is. From start to finish we've driven in excess of 2400 km since our return from Boston (those kilometres, btw, are not included in this tally) - and we're not quite done just yet.
