The Little Boy Who Swallowed a Lake

I am happy to announce the birth of a new children's book. The proud parents are Erwin Buck (writer) and Larry Routliffe (illustrator). The book weighs in at just under 44 pages and was delivered after a lengthy period of labour. Copies are available from Erwin Buck for $10 plus postage, contact:

Thanksgiving Weekend

This was undoubtedly the best thanksgiving weekend in a long time. Warm days, spectacular colours, and not the slightest hint of a breeze to break the calmness of the water.

Best intentions

I had intended to continue the daily blog upon my return from Europe but the summer, the cottage, and Brody laid claim to my time and before long three months passed. So, there will just have to be a gap of three months. Windy day today which always brings out the kite-surfers. Prevailing westerlies make this a beach of choice I'm told.

Tuscany and Istanbul

For the past two weeks I have been in Tuscany and Istanbul. My blog, as a result, was sadly neglected. In the coming weeks I will add some pictures from each region as time permits. I am heading to the cottage for three weeks and may only have limited time to update the blog. Stay tuned.

Brody surprised Monica on her birthday with a card and the biggest hug ever.
