We just had a young family visitor from the UK visiting for a couple of weeks and have now seen her off at the airport … it was fun and I am now thoroughly tuned in to a younger generation again and have a new appreciation for cheesecake.   I am not yet twittering though.

Now – on to the next adventure which will be another old friend visiting and our annual visit to the cabin at Kenauk.  The people who run Kenauk have put out a short video of what is in store for us and why we have been going back there every year since coming to Canada – this is what it is all about.  You can view this at:

Meanwhile, it has been stinking hot here and the Arboretum at least provided some shade – it truly is a splendid place:
