More Traveling

We went to see Andreas and Karen at their farm in the Ottawa Valley – Andreas’ dad bought it a long time ago and when we were kids we used to come and hike and snowshoe on the land so it was very special to come back. We came in the winter previously when John developed frost on all extremities – no danger this time!

We had such a great visit – saw Andreas’ vegetable garden, a thing of beauty and only the second time John has missed his (the first time, digging in Shelagh’s – where did I get my black thumbs?)

We went to Beachbourg to see the boys and girls practicing for the imminent world championship freestyle kayaking on the mighty Ottawa River –

Of course plenty of chat and good food, and then a bit of a trip on the lake and waterskiing (we demurred; this is Karen..):

Well Andreas, the captain, actually
