August...already?


We have been enjoying some beautiful weather here in Southern Ontario.  We have been away most of last month on the water and for one week we travelled with a group of 50 boats on a rendezvous- leaving our Midland/Pentanguishene home port, winding our way across Georgian Bay and into Killarney.  We had a blast- along the way we visited some favourite anchoring spots, explored new areas, fished, and swam lots.

The rendezvous, it was a bit of a puzzle to fit all the boats onto the docks in Killarney.
A trip to Killarney would not be complete without dropping by the famous 'bus' in town aka Herberts Fisheries where the fish is caught daily and served (it is a building and the 'bus' is at the front).

The fish is perfectly cooked with a thin crisp batter and well I'm a sucker for thick potato fries.  We have been coming here for many years, the red and white bus is the same, the yummy fish is just a delicious as I remembered when I ate it for the very first time.  I'm so glad nothing changes here, it's a memory that I will always remember.  After dinner we make the mandatory trip to the local ice cream shoppe for a perfect end to our good eats.



Returning home I had some happy mail.  The new Scor-pal idea book, in colour print and in my mailbox!  Thrilled to be asked by Diana Crick, owner of Scor-pal, to contribute a project to her inaugural book!  There are so many wonderful projects, cards, 3D displays, scoring templates etc.  in this book and I can't wait to spend some time soaking it all up.

I created a house clock and is on the cover at the bottom left hand corner.

Here are a few photos up close of the project. The clock face is an actual clock mechanism and the roof is a cascading mini album.

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!
