We have thoroughly enjoyed the past 18 days with Sally, Tim’s daughter visiting from England. We swam, hiked up a small local mountain taller than the tallest mountain in the UK, ate ice cream, picked berries, rode bikes, swam, ate ice cream, did numerous cartwheels, walk-overs, and tick-tocks, visited with friends, went white-water rafting, ate pancakes with maple syrup, played croquet, roasted marshmallows, went canoeing and camping, clicked our heels, swam some more, basked in the sunshine, ate ice cream, went on a zip-line, saw some wild-life, cowered from the thunder and lightening, learned how to dive off a floating dock (yay, Sally!), saw some live theatre, and oh, did I mention the ice cream?

  1. what a great time for the lovely Sally, and my has she sprouted up . This sounds like an truly Canadian holiday .. maple syrup and pancakes and ice cream, rafting..just one question got room for one more.

  2. Wow – those photos are great Kate. What a wonderful holiday for Sally. I’m sure she has a very positive view of Canada.
    Saw Yael performing at the Treehouse Cafe last night – and she was amazing, she really is a superwoman!
    Big hugs from down this way, and lots of love
