I sent her the directions, routing her through Canada in order to cut 300 km off the 1,600 km trip and cut the travel time down to a mere 31 hours.
So, today's post is about the lovely day we would have had, if all those miles had not stood between us and a real day out, with the original Lake Superior Spirit -- Kathy of "UpWoods" fame.
As it's hunting season, it was important for Kathy to wear "hunter orange".
|A bit embarrassing when the a breeze|
blew up Kathy's "skirt".
She and Amy-Lynn walked with their heads inclined toward each other, chatting and giggling. I found this rather unnerving as each time I wandered close to them, they'd stop talking. Were they talking about me ?
Kathy was quite curious about the Innukshuk. We explained that they spontaneously appear in all sorts of odd locations. I bet there are lots of them scattered about her beloved "upwoods".
We were concerned when Kathy insisted on wearing a fuzzy, bear hat...

From a distance we could hear the sound of tumbling water.
For a while Kathy just sat quietly by the river. I wasn't sure, but I think I heard her say, "Ohmmmmmm".
"Where'd she go?"
Oh there she is, hiding behind that boulder.
"C'mon Kathy, let's catch up with the others."
Kathy was mite nervous posing for this photo with Wendy and Trey. Trey had just lost his ball in the woods, and when he can't find his ball, he often grabs the nearest STICK !
And this is what he does to sticks ...
Tired from our lovely walk, we headed back for another cup of tea and a rest.

Amy-Lynn and I wanted to get back to the city before dark, so it was time to go.

Can't wait to have more adventures with my blogging buddies.
