Strong Women

We started our trip west this year as we usually do. We stopped to spend some time with Lori’s mom on Manitoulin Island. Evelyn Lane is a painter, sister, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, great great grandmother and one of the strongest people I have ever known. She is 92 and still going. I wonder if I will ever even come close to 92? Bull Thistle Flower

While on the Island, I travelled to Misery Bay Provincial Park one morning. I was thinking of Doreen Bailey while walking the trails. Doreen passed away in April 2016. Lori and I have spent time with her in the park. We have also worked on several projects together. She taught us a lot about the plants and animals of Manitoulin. I felt her presence on the trail. A trail and place she had a big roll in preserving for all of us to enjoy. Thank you Doreen. You are an inspiration. Misery Bay Provincial Park

We have been planning this trip for a few months. The new van is much like our old one. But the bed is a lot more sturdy and comfortable. There is a lot more storage space above and below the bed too. The Van

We are on the road now. Starting to get into it. Hopefully the cameras will be getting a little workout. The Van
