hiking part 1

The best thing about Restoule Provincial Park is the Fire Tower Trail. It was a fantastic hike.

time flies...

I've been away again. This time in Thunder Bay for 10 days. I had a great time - the perfect mix of visiting family and pure relaxation. I have lots of photos to share, and I still haven't posted all my pictures from camping. I think I'll post a few more camping photos before getting into the Thunder Bay ones. It's funny how this happens - I felt like I had nothing worth posting about for months, and now it all comes at once. It has been a great summer.

We just got back from camping for the weekend. It was wonderful. 
I'll have plenty more to post once I've gone through all my photos. More to come soon!

mineral show

The same weekend my brother was here I snuck away for an afternoon by myself to go to the Toronto Jewellery Gem and Mineral Show, a seasonal event, which on this occasion was held at a community arena in East York. It was my first time going to a show like this and although it was mostly people selling jewellery/supplies and beads, there were half a dozen mineral specimen dealers there as well. It was pretty exciting - the most specimens and best selection I've seen in one place. Needless to say I spent way too much money, but I got a bunch of great stuff, most of which will be used for paintings. To start with, here are some pics from the sale. I'll save my purchases for a separate post.
