Little River, Ontario, Canada
Here are some pictures from my trip up to Little River in northern Ontario, for my grandma's birthday. I stayed with my grandma in a lovely cabin in the woods, along the river. The river lead out into a chain of lakes (5 in total) which was home to all manner of wildlife. Take your time and enjoy the pics, clicking on them for larger versions if you're interested.
This is the door to the screened-in porch. It once had screen on the bottom as well as the top, but the night before a group of raccoons had ripped the bottom screen out in order to enter the porch and ransack the garbage my dad had left in there. As I soon found out over the next two nights, the raccoons would keep returning looking for more....
That's my (84 year old!) grandma in all her boating and fishing glory, steering us through all the river channels into the various lakes. For over 20 years she and I have been partners in crime as I sit at the front and navigate ("A little more to the left! LEFT!!!") and she drives. As a note, those bottles in the water are markers so that boaters don't hit obstacles like rocks or sunken trees.
