Road Trip...

Jake and The Farmer's Daughter, Vermont



The Old Log Cabin now 'The Angler' in Maine. I went there
as a youngster and wanted to take these guys. good food...

the boys had scones, us girls had big honking sandwiches
Vermont bakery
the Honey House in Brook, Ontario
swimming in Christy Lake, Ontario
Noodle Soup Pub in The Beaches, Toronto
hmmm....guess we did a fair bit of eating.
oh well.

this is the same spot - we ate here twice and would be eating there tonight if we were close enough! Korean food and lovely people...

the verandah at the place we rented for all of us siblings and attachments

an owl at the Beaches library

step-dot's shoes outside the door

we went to the ROM and saw some of the terra cotta warriors
amazing!


a Bodhisaatva

an interesting person waiting for the street car...
this is an adult by the way...step-dot thought 'lolita cult' but I thought 'raggedy ann meets the Amish'
my beautiful sister Jude just before her daughter's wedding...


my brother Don & my step-dot - on our way to the wedding...
Brynn (my niece) and Scotty all married up!
Jude made the butterfly bouqets...

awwww..


a family moment - were you proud? What did you wear?

Oh and your niece - her name sounds like a sneeze!

Hi Brenda - yep, I'll go in and change that! Yikes!

Hey Denise - yep, it was fun. I wore a little flip of a dress - white with poppies on it - in a sort of chiffon - that I picked up at a consignment shop...

Kacheena is named after the dancing spirit of the Pueblo Indians - they spell it Kachina though...I named my practice after her and it still exists though not with me in it!
Her middle name is Valentina so her name is a poem...and so is she!

fabulous pictures, Jan! Looks like a great trip--some vacationing and good food, and a fabulous family event! I can see why you're having a little trouble landing.

I loved these! I started to list favourites, but then I realized there was no point since I adored them all, and perhaps most of all the set. They make such a nice collection, and it makes me think that you had a nice time off with your family, seeing, exploring, tasting, testing, photographing, sharing, musing and observing different things. That makes me happy :) Good to have you back, though - you've been missed!

Tartlette - not only landing but back on the diet from hell (no wheat, no sugar, no yeast, no beautiful gin & tonics, no wonderful croisants, no...whah!) Oh well. Life is a diner...not a cabaret.
Cruella - thank you for the nice strokes! We did have us a time.
