Spruce Lane Farm

The leaves are beginning to change in southwestern Ontario, and Spruce Lane Farm is no exception. This turn of the century farm is surprisingly nestled in busy Oakville near the shore of Bronte Creek. The grounds are still in use and we look forward to returning in the spring for the annual Maple Syrup Festival.

Sassafras Point

I'm back in the Hammer in Ontario, and one of the first places we visited was Sassafras Point on Cootes Paradise. This hidden gem is a short walk from McMaster University, and is especially lovely on a late afternoon at summer's end. The leaves are just starting to change, and as we sat at the point, the sun's dying ray set everything it touched aglow.

A blustery day at the beach

Yesterday in Vancouver, the winds were blowing ferociously. After the power went out, we decided to brave the cold and wind with a walk down to Jericho Beach. There, we were greeted with an abundance of boats and birds and bunnies, all who did not seem to mind our presence.

Welcome to Stanleytown, New Amsterdam

New Amsterdam is one of the largest towns in Guyana and is nestled on the bank Berbice River, a mere 6 km from the Atlantic coast. We stayed in the neighborhood of Stanleytown, just south of the town center and a stone's throw from the river. Many a restful afternoon was spent sitting on the front porch, just enjoying the ebb and flow of small town life.
