Seven years and Thanksgiving


The amazing wood s lot is 7 years old, and that’s a lot in blog years! In addition to his ever rich cornucopia, for the past few months Mark has been posting his own beautiful photos of his home region in Ontario which I’ve admired. With my obsession with rocks and petroglyphs, I was most intrigued by his post of Sept.25th, 2007 with his photos of Mazinaw Rock in Bon Echo Provincial Park. He wrote:

This 1.5-kilometre sheer rock face rises 100 metres above Mazinaw Lake, one of the deepest lakes in Ontario, and features over 260 native pictographs – the largest visible collection in Canada. It also is home to some Eastern White Cedars upwards of 1000 years old.

Congratulations and thank you, Mark! That’s a great photo of you.

And, it’s the Thanksgiving long weekend here in Canada. We’ll have our family dinner on Sunday (tomorrow) with eight of us around the table – two daughters, two partners and two granddaughters. One out-of-town daughter and her partner will be missed but not forgotten, especially on her birthday on Monday! We are thankful for the blessings of a lovely family and a good life in this beautiful part of the world. Happy Thanksgiving to all!
