<strong>Summer</strong> <strong>2022</strong>


DESTINATIONS TO EXPLORE<br />

The <strong>Summer</strong> We All Deserve!<br />

There’s always something folks!<br />

Every year there’s something that gets<br />

in the way of our tourism industry hitting<br />

a home run. This year it’s inflation and the<br />

price of gas, but it’s been known by many<br />

names over the years... SARS, gas prices,<br />

9/11, gas prices, border issues, gas prices,<br />

a global pandemic, gas prices and so on.<br />

All I can say at this point is “Don’t let it<br />

stop you.” That ‘thing we don’t wanna talk<br />

about’ cancelled or changed all our travel<br />

plans for far too long (even though it was<br />

actually good for many businesses) but<br />

the worst of it is behind us and we need<br />

to get back to enjoying our lives. (Yes... I<br />

did knock on wood as I wrote that).<br />

We’re thrilled, as I’m sure you are,<br />

to have events back. After two years of<br />

secretly meeting with only your closest<br />

friends in your tarped in back porch<br />

(not that I would do that) we finally have<br />

concerts, parades, fireworks, craft/art/<br />

antique shows, car shows, ribfests, yard<br />

sales, our kids sports, live theatre — even<br />

our local politicians can now argue with<br />

each other face to face.<br />

The pandemic was horrible by all<br />

accounts, but I’ll say again that a few<br />

good things have come out of this long<br />

ordeal. People started supporting small<br />

business in a big way and that seems to<br />

be continuing... we’ve formed new and<br />

good habits, and habits can be hard to<br />

break. I believe people are determined to<br />

get out on the road, use those trailers and<br />

boats they purchased, and enjoy life. I had<br />

friends pass away during the pandemic,<br />

you probably did too, and neither of us<br />

want to see a drive by funeral again.<br />

Maybe the term “Life is Short” means a<br />

bit more than it did not that long ago and<br />

the price of gas, which is always too high,<br />

shouldn’t get in our way, not this year.<br />

So get out there and enjoy it everyone.<br />

Ontario is much more welcoming than<br />

it was only a few years ago, with far<br />

more patios to enjoy and a lot of live<br />

entertainment to keep it interesting. If I<br />

can make one suggestion it would be to<br />

Tell Us About Your<br />

in Southwestern Ontario<br />

stay the night, a few days or a whole week<br />

somewhere in SW Ontario, ideally close<br />

to water. It doesn’t matter if your ideal<br />

vacation is good food on the barbeque, or<br />

hours wasted on the beach, or shopping,<br />

or finding history in local museums. If<br />

you can find quality time to spend in any<br />

area I believe you’ll find the best it can<br />

offer, even if that’s a great meal with local<br />

produce and a sunset.<br />

For any Americans reading this,<br />

I think you’ll quickly discover that your<br />

dollar is worth about 30% more and goes<br />

a lot further in Canada. Many items now<br />

cost less here than they do in the USA<br />

and are a great deal, even with our taxes<br />

(which you can get back). And thanks for<br />

visiting!<br />

Take care of each other too please.<br />

We Canadians went through a tough time<br />

back in the winter that divided us. In<br />

some cases, friends and family became<br />

strangers for a while there. I can’t speak<br />

for anyone but myself but I never lost<br />

confidence that we’d make it through<br />

that time and that our friendships would<br />

persevere for the most part, and be<br />

strengthened in many cases. If we look<br />

around the world I think we can agree<br />

on how fortunate we are. The price of<br />

gas sucks, but that pales in comparison<br />

to problems around the globe and is not<br />

enough to stop us from living life to the<br />

fullest.<br />

So take care, make time for others,<br />

don’t sweat the small stuff, tip the<br />

musicians, forgive, shop locally, tell the<br />

people you love that you love them, and<br />

have the grace to smile when someone<br />

wants to take your picture.<br />

I love you! Thanks for reading.<br />

What Does Love Mean?<br />

4 to 8 year old kids were asked<br />

this important question -<br />

Here are some of their responses<br />

• "Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it every day."<br />

• "Love is when mommy sees daddy sitting on the toilet and she doesn't<br />

think it's gross."<br />

• "You shouldn't say 'I Love You' unless you mean it - but if you mean it,<br />

say it lots, people forget."<br />

• "I let my big sister pick on me because my Mom says she only picks on me<br />

because she loves me. So I pick on my baby sister because I love her."<br />

• "During my piano recital I was on stage and scared. I looked at all the<br />

people and saw my daddy waving and smiling. He was the only one<br />

doing that. I wasn't scared anymore."<br />

As a not for profit charitable<br />

organization, the Gibson Art Gallery in<br />

beautiful Amherstburg does not charge<br />

entrance to patrons for visits to our art<br />

exhibitions or our caboose museum. We<br />

rely on our annual fundraising event,<br />

Art by the River, Essex County’s original<br />

arts and crafts festival. This event runs<br />

annually the weekend before Labour Day<br />

weekend, rain or shine and has run every<br />

year but 2020 since its inception in 1967.<br />

This year it will be held on August 27th and<br />

28th on the grounds of picturesque Fort<br />

Malden Historical Site, along the banks of<br />

the Detroit River. It had 50 vendors when<br />

it started in 1967, but has grown to over<br />

170 artists and artisans.<br />

At the Gibson Art Gallery, you will see<br />

exhibits by local artists, photographers,<br />

stitchers or travelling art exhibits. These<br />

exhibits change monthly, with our last<br />

exhibit being a festive holiday market,<br />

bringing Art by the River indoors, with<br />

over 50 artisans selling items. We also<br />

have an Artisan Gift Shoppe where<br />

someone can find unique gifts made by<br />

our members.<br />

The gallery is owned and operated<br />

by the Fort Malden Guild of Arts and<br />

Crafts, a volunteer board promoting<br />

an appreciation of the visual arts and<br />

crafts in the local community. It is a<br />

historical, Romanesque style building<br />

located at 140 Richmond Street. This<br />

building is a former Michigan Central<br />

Railroad station, which started services<br />

through to Michigan and Chicago in<br />

1896 after its predecessor burnt down,<br />

twice. The last train left the station in<br />

1965. The building still has its it original<br />

charming appearance, with dressed<br />

stone windowsills with decorative<br />

trim, bevelled glass panes set in fan<br />

lights above the windows and original<br />

hardwood flooring.<br />

The former station was purchased by<br />

Florence Gibson in 1969 and donated<br />

to the group, which was started in<br />

1945, incorporated as a charitable<br />

organization in 1975 and still owns<br />

the building today. Car 55, a boxcar<br />

from Hiram Walker and converted to a<br />

caboose by the Essex Terminal Railroad,<br />

was refitted in 2002 to its original<br />

1945 appearance and now serves as<br />

a museum of local railroad artifacts<br />

and memorabilia and can be accessed<br />

through our gallery for tours.<br />

The Really Big Carrots<br />

By Vicki Hornick, Tilbury<br />

Growing up in a large farm family,<br />

planting the garden was an annual right<br />

of spring.<br />

Dad worked hard raising the hogs<br />

as well as planting and harvesting<br />

cash crops, like wheat and soy beans.<br />

The thing is, despite being called cash<br />

crops; they did not bring in<br />

much cash. Thus, practical,<br />

reliable, frugal dad rallied<br />

his troops each spring to<br />

plant the garden.<br />

With the meat of one of<br />

the hogs in a freezer and<br />

the vegetables we had grown,<br />

the family would be fed through the<br />

winter.<br />

Squash, rutabaga and other root<br />

vegetables were kept in a cold room.<br />

Most of the beets were pickled with<br />

Gramma’s recipe. Corn, beans and peas<br />

were blanched and frozen along with<br />

some of the carrots. Parsnips were left<br />

in the ground to freeze into wonderful<br />

sweetness; we had to dig them out with<br />

a pickaxe when we needed them.<br />

The garden was large; it had to be<br />

to grow enough for a family with ten<br />

children. Many rows of corn ensured<br />

there would be enough even after<br />

raccoons took a share. Of course<br />

raccoons were less of a problem while<br />

we had Boots, our boarder collie. She<br />

loved corn and would pick it, husk it and<br />

eat every kernel from a cob before going<br />

back for more. Boots knew we were<br />

sharing the corn with her and she was<br />

sharing it with us. She would not share<br />

it with raccoons. When the corn began<br />

to ripen Boots would spend her nights<br />

patrolling the corn patch.<br />

The garden was planted behind the<br />

back barn, but we knew when the coons<br />

had come. Laying in bed we would all<br />

be started awake by Boots’ hysterical<br />

barking and the trilling and snarling of<br />

startled, angry raccoons that were being<br />

denied access to one of their favourite<br />

meals. Boots would fight epic battles<br />

some nights to reclaim control of the<br />

corn patch. In the morning she would<br />

be praised and rewarded by us for her<br />

vigilance before settling down for some<br />

much needed sleep.<br />

With the garden behind the back<br />

barn it not only put it in easy reach of<br />

raccoons from back the lane; it was also<br />

beside the manure pile. Every day when<br />

the pig pens were cleaned the bedding<br />

straw and manure was carried in the<br />

wheelbarrow and dumped out the back<br />

door of the barn. It was spread on the<br />

fields after the fall harvest, but by spring<br />

there was already a large, growing pile<br />

again. We kept the edge of the garden a<br />

good ten feet from the manure pile and<br />

planted the corn on that side. This way<br />

we figured the corn was fertilized, but it<br />

of course was growing on the stalks well<br />

above the possibility of contamination.<br />

After the corn came the bush beans,<br />

tomatoes and the peas, which grew<br />

up frames, also keeping them off the<br />

ground. Then came squash, pumpkins,<br />

cucumber and zucchini, which grew<br />

on the ground. Finally root vegetables;<br />

carrots, beets, radishes, turnips and<br />

parsnips were planted on the far side of<br />

the garden away from the manure pile.<br />

This was a plan we rigidly stuck<br />

with every year, confident it eliminated<br />

possible contamination of our vegetables.<br />

Accidents happen; especially if a plan<br />

is being put in place with the help of a<br />

bunch of boisterous children.<br />

During the course of planting<br />

we dug and weeded and<br />

hoed and threw dirt and<br />

water and chase each<br />

other around with hoses<br />

and buckets.<br />

In the course of one<br />

of these chases two<br />

of my older brothers<br />

Shawn and Robin made<br />

the circuit of the garden;<br />

Shawn with a bucket of<br />

water and Robin holding<br />

an open packet of carrot seeds, still about<br />

a quarter full. As they rounded the end of<br />

the corn patch Robin tripped. The seed<br />

packet flew from his hand scattering<br />

seeds across the edge of the manure pile.<br />

The seeds were lost and we didn’t<br />

think much more about them for a couple<br />

of weeks; then something happened that<br />

couldn’t be denied. There were carrot<br />

sprouts coming up in the manure pile<br />

and they were coming up much faster<br />

and larger then the carrots planted in the<br />

proper spot.<br />

All summer we tended the garden;<br />

weeding, harvesting and replanting<br />

root vegetables as they were pulled<br />

and processed or eaten. We tried not to<br />

notice the carrots in the manure as the<br />

tops grew taller and more verdant than<br />

Queen Anne ’s lace.<br />

We tried not to notice but we could<br />

see, even with a quick glance at the<br />

manure pile, carrots that while we were<br />

harvesting carrots as big around as<br />

quarters by mid summer they were as<br />

big around as saucers. By fall they were<br />

as big around as my father’s arms. They<br />

were in short; really big carrots.<br />

School started and through September<br />

and October we harvested and processed<br />

the last of the vegetables. Our freezer,<br />

cupboards and cold room were quite<br />

full. The cold room should have been<br />

especially full of carrots; it was not.<br />

We harvested all the carrots and other<br />

root vegetables in the proper patch, the<br />

corn stalks and other above ground crops<br />

were striped and plowed under. We still<br />

tried to ignore the really big carrots, until<br />

curiosity could no longer be denied.<br />

When the last of the non contaminated<br />

vegetables had been processed, except<br />

the parsnips, still in the ground waiting<br />

to be frozen, we decided to find out just<br />

how big the carrots were.<br />

With work gloves in place, shovels and<br />

hoes and the wheel barrel at the ready to<br />

carry our findings we began to dig. The<br />

carrots were indeed as large around as<br />

Dad’s well-muscled arms, they were two<br />

and a half to three feet long and looked<br />

healthy and juicy.<br />

We dumped almost two dozen carrots<br />

on the ground and hosed them off, while<br />

everyone gathered around to admire<br />

them.<br />

Mom said, “I’m not cooking those.”<br />

Everyone else; even practical, reliable,<br />

frugal Dad said, “I’m not eating those.”<br />

Yes, we had grown the biggest,<br />

healthiest and juiciest looking carrots of<br />

our lives and no one would eat them; no<br />

one human at least.<br />

Dad couldn’t let that much food go to<br />

waste, after washing them a few more<br />

times he let the pigs have them. The<br />

pigs thought the really big carrots were a<br />

really big treat.<br />

Our families remain with us long after<br />

they have passed on. It is surprising<br />

when you look back on the memories<br />

of them as you get older, how much<br />

they influenced you and your interests.<br />

My father’s older sister was a meek<br />

person, but she left me with several<br />

of her influences. She married and<br />

lived in Charing Cross, a little hamlet<br />

outside of Chatham. Her home was a<br />

typical country home, with homemade<br />

curtains, and old furniture she bought<br />

at estate auctions. She seemed to fit<br />

into the country woman role. She had<br />

chickens and a big vegetable garden<br />

which we benefited from whenever we<br />

went out on a Sunday afternoon to visit<br />

her and my uncle. She did preserves<br />

and pickled. Her pickled shallots were<br />

good, but lethal—burning all the way<br />

down. It was the closest thing to being<br />

in the country that I would experience<br />

Page 6<br />

Family Ties<br />

growing up. There were fields across the<br />

road from her home and fields behind<br />

the house with cows that would come to<br />

the fence and stare at you.<br />

I was born and raised in the city and<br />

as I grew up into adulthood I remained<br />

in the city, until life took me to small<br />

town Ontario, that being Ridgetown.<br />

I liked being in a small town where<br />

there was a sense of community. The<br />

peacefulness and calmness were there,<br />

as well as quietness. Unlike the city<br />

with the traffic and sirens going and the<br />

general hub bub. At that time I thought<br />

it must be nice to live in the country.<br />

My life did take me to living in the<br />

By Ruth Simpson, Chatham<br />

country on a gravel road. It felt like I<br />

had come home. Eventually, I ended<br />

up living on a farm with a pasture next<br />

door with cattle that would come to<br />

the fence and stare at me as I went for<br />

a walk, and yes, would break through<br />

the fence into our bean field. I found<br />

my niche in life. There is nothing like<br />

waking up with cattle lowing on a full<br />

moon night or hearing the rooster at<br />

the next farm crowing in the morning.<br />

We had seven acres of bush at the back<br />

of our fields and I would take the dogs<br />

walking through its peacefulness, but I<br />

digress.<br />

It dawned on me one day of my times<br />

“For external use only” (label on a curling iron)<br />

at my aunt’s and how they influenced<br />

me in my life. I like old furniture and<br />

the decor of a country home. The wide<br />

open spaces make you feel free and<br />

uncluttered. Times have changed for<br />

me and I am back living in the city with<br />

all the noise and hustle and bustle. I<br />

look back on my experience of country<br />

living and my aunt, and I nod my head<br />

in acknowledgment to my aunt and her<br />

influence in my life.<br />

OPENING REMARKS<br />

“The Love Dress”<br />

A woman stopped by unannounced, at her son's house. She<br />

knocked on the door then immediately walked in. She was<br />

shocked to see her daughter-in-law lying on the couch, totally<br />

naked. Soft music was playing, and the aroma of perfume filled<br />

the room. "What are you doing?" she asked. "I'm waiting for<br />

Justin to come home from work." The daughter-in-law<br />

answered. "But you're naked!" the mother-in-law exclaimed.<br />

"This is my love dress," the daughter-in-law explained.<br />

"Love dress? But you're naked!"<br />

"Justin loves me to wear this dress," she explained. "Every time<br />

he sees me in this dress, he instantly becomes romantic and<br />

ravages me for hours." The mother-in-law left. When she got<br />

home she undressed, showered, put on her best perfume,<br />

dimmed the lights, put on a romantic CD, and laid on the couch<br />

waiting for her husband to arrive. Finally, her husband came<br />

home. He walked in and saw her lying there so provocatively.<br />

"What are you doing?" he asked.<br />

"This is my love dress," she whispered, sensually.<br />

"Needs ironing," he said, "What's for dinner?”<br />

Forestry Service Comments<br />

The following are actual comments left on Forest Service registration sheets<br />

and comment cards by backpackers completing wilderness camping trips.<br />

Found smouldering cigarette left by horse.<br />

A small deer came into my camp and stole by bag of pickles. Is there any way I<br />

can get reimbursed? Please call.<br />

Escalators would help on steep uphill sections.<br />

Instead of a permit system or regulations, the Forest Service needs to reduce<br />

worldwide population growth to limit the number of visitors to the wilderness.<br />

Trails need to be wider so people can walk together while holding hands.<br />

Ban walking sticks in the wilderness. Hikers that use walking sticks are more likely<br />

to chase animals.<br />

A McDonald’s would be nice at the trail head.<br />

Trails need to be reconstructed. Please avoid building trails that go uphill.<br />

Too many bugs and leeches and spiders and spider webs. Please spray the<br />

wilderness to rid the area of these pests.<br />

Please pave the trails so they can be plowed<br />

of any snow in the winter.<br />

Chair lifts need to be in some places so<br />

we can get to wonderful views without<br />

having to hike to them.<br />

There are too many rocks in<br />

the mountains.<br />

It will take just moments to read this<br />

and change your thinking.<br />

Two men, both seriously ill, occupied<br />

the same hospital room. One man was<br />

allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour<br />

each afternoon to help drain the fluid from<br />

his lungs. His bed was next to the room's<br />

only window. The other man had to spend<br />

all his time flat on his back.<br />

The men talked for hours on end. They<br />

spoke of their wives and families, their<br />

homes, their jobs, their involvement in the<br />

military service, where they had been on<br />

vacation.<br />

Every afternoon, when the man in<br />

the bed by the window could sit up, he<br />

would pass the time by describing to<br />

his roommate all the things he could<br />

see outside the window. The man in the<br />

other bed began to live for those one<br />

hour periods where his world would be<br />

enlivened by all the activity and colour of<br />

the world outside. The window overlooked<br />

a park with a lovely lake. Ducks and swans<br />

played on the water while children sailed<br />

their model boats. Young lovers walked<br />

arm in arm amidst flowers of every colour<br />

and a fine view of the city skyline could<br />

be seen in the distance. As the man by<br />

the window described all this in exquisite<br />

details, the man on the other side of the<br />

room would close his eyes and imagine<br />

this picturesque scene.<br />

The Present<br />

window described a parade passing by.<br />

Although the other man could not hear the<br />

band - he could see it in his mind's eye as<br />

the gentleman by the window portrayed it<br />

with descriptive words.<br />

Days, weeks and months passed.<br />

One morning, the day nurse arrived to<br />

bring water for their baths only to find the<br />

lifeless body of the man by the window,<br />

who had died peacefully in his sleep. She<br />

was saddened and called the hospital<br />

attendants to take the body away. As soon<br />

as it seemed appropriate, the other man<br />

asked if he could be moved next to the<br />

window. The nurse was happy to make<br />

the switch, and after making sure he was<br />

comfortable, she left him alone.<br />

Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up<br />

on one elbow to take his first look at the<br />

world outside. He strained to slowly turn<br />

to look out the window. It faced a blank<br />

wall. The man asked the nurse what could<br />

have compelled his deceased roommate<br />

who had described such wonderful things<br />

outside this window. The nurse responded<br />

that the man was blind and could not even<br />

see the wall. She said, 'Perhaps he just<br />

wanted to encourage you.'<br />

Epilogue: There is tremendous happiness<br />

in making others happy, despite our own<br />

situations. Shared grief is half the sorrow,<br />

but happiness when shared, is doubled.<br />

Present.'<br />

Inspiring a healthy community,<br />

one meal at a time.<br />

Get ready for a unique, back-tonature<br />

festival experience in Canada’s<br />

southernmost town of Kingsville this<br />

summer!<br />

The Kingsville Music Society—<br />

organizer of the popular Kingsville Folk<br />

Music Festival—is presenting a three-day<br />

festival with a new look and feel August<br />

12-14. The Greenway Jam is taking music<br />

beyond the former festival grounds of<br />

Lakeside Park and bringing it across this<br />

beautiful town. A 2 km expanse of the<br />

Chrysler Canada Greenway trail links the<br />

stages located at various venues along the<br />

way. Festival goers are invited to cycle or<br />

walk along the trail to watch their favourite<br />

musicians perform on the four stages.<br />

3 DAYS OF GREAT CANADIAN MUSIC<br />

Offering a lineup of local and Canadian<br />

performers with a diverse range of<br />

musical styles, the Kingsville Music<br />

Society promotes emerging artists from<br />

the region as well as presenting some<br />

of Canada’s most respected musical<br />

ambassadors.<br />

Don’t miss out on main stage<br />

headliners Friday and Saturday evening<br />

at Kingsville Brewery. The formidable<br />

Kathleen Edwards headlines Friday<br />

evening on the main stage following<br />

The Slocan Ramblers, Garnet Rogers, Big<br />

Little Lions and Durham County Poets.<br />

Steven Page, formerly of the Barenaked<br />

Ladies, takes to the main stage Saturday<br />

night after performances from Ashley<br />

MacIsaac, Elliot Brood, Julian Taylor and<br />

Sarah Smith.<br />

Enjoy the music and sunshine during<br />

the day with a wide array of free concerts<br />

and musical workshops. The tradition<br />

of daytime workshops brings together<br />

musicians, familiar and unfamiliar, for<br />

unexpected collaborations that yield<br />

vibrant, once-in-a-lifetime performances.<br />

On Sunday, round off the weekend at<br />

Pelee Island Winery for a wrap-up party.<br />

BIKE AND CYCLE ALONG THE<br />

CHRYSLER CANADA GREENWAY<br />

Travel along the the historical Chrysler<br />

Canada Greenway to make the most<br />

of your Greenway Jam experience. The<br />

Greenway is a 42 km natural trail system<br />

located in the Essex region. The trail<br />

connects the city of Windsor, running<br />

through several municipalities all the way<br />

to Leamington.<br />

This trail comprises the southernmost<br />

link of the Trans Canada Trail which<br />

extends across the country from coast to<br />

coast. It has a unique history dating back<br />

to the late 1980s. Formerly the Canadian<br />

branch of the Chesapeake and Ohio<br />

Railway operated by CSX Transportation,<br />

the line was donated to the Essex Region<br />

Conservation Authority (ERCA) nearly a<br />

century later. In the early 1990s Chrysler<br />

Canada gave a considerable donation<br />

which resulted in the former railway<br />

line becoming the beautiful expanse of<br />

natural trails that it is today.<br />

The Greenway Jam takes the festival<br />

outside of the former festival grounds<br />

and into the Town of Kingsville, putting<br />

an emphasis on the importance of live<br />

music in the community and supporting<br />

local businesses. All stages and venues<br />

are handicap accessible and will have<br />

available parking for vehicles and bikes.<br />

A Waft of <strong>Summer</strong><br />

The gentleness of an early summer<br />

morning on my back porch swing<br />

floods over me. The smell of fresh cut<br />

grass tickles my nostrils as I relish in<br />

the wonderful joys of retirement. Oh<br />

yes, the howling winds of winter, the<br />

blowing snow, the dangling icicles all<br />

have their beauty as we stay snuggly,<br />

tucked inside, piecing a jigsaw puzzle,<br />

but the best time of all the seasons is<br />

when the sun shines, the birds dutifully<br />

build their nests and tug on worms, the<br />

tractors pass by in a caravan of busyness<br />

and the daffodils sway in the ditch. This<br />

is truly a touch of heaven.<br />

And with it comes the<br />

smells of summer. The<br />

cherry blossoms send out<br />

their delicate spray, lilacs<br />

scent the air with their<br />

distinctive perfume<br />

as we drive past a<br />

plethora of bushes in the<br />

neighbouring ditches. I<br />

always cut a few to put<br />

in my bedroom so I can<br />

fall asleep to that familiar<br />

scent. As I rock in my<br />

My mother, often remarked how this<br />

reminded her of her childhood days<br />

on her grandfather’s farm in the Back<br />

Canishers of Guernsey. I don’t suppose<br />

I ever realized as a child how much she<br />

missed her island home. However, it did<br />

leave her with a great love of nature,<br />

the different seasons and how each one<br />

has its own special joys. I believe I’ve<br />

inherited that love. I could not imagine<br />

ever again living in a big city although<br />

that is certainly where the de<br />

smells of the barnyard,<br />

the sweetness of fresh<br />

Erieau<br />

…a Time Well Spent<br />

By Ruth Simpson, Chatham<br />

On the north shore of Lake Erie<br />

in Chatham-Kent sits the village of<br />

Erieau. Situated on a sand spit, Erieau<br />

is bordered between Rondeau Bay to<br />

the north and Lake Erie to the south.<br />

The village of Erieau was settled<br />

in the late nineteenth century and<br />

was originally called “The Pier.” The<br />

economy was commercial fishing,<br />

coal and tourism. The fishing industry<br />

started in the late nineteenth century<br />

when transportation and markets<br />

became more developed. The markets<br />

for fish were in Detroit, Michigan and<br />

Sandusky, Ohio. The success of the<br />

fishing industry took hold when the<br />

Post Fishing Co. of Sandusky became<br />

involved in the Erieau fishing industry.<br />

The north shore of Lake Erie had an<br />

abundant amount of fish, unlike the<br />

American side where the fish stock<br />

was depleted due to over fishing.<br />

Erieau became a branch plant of the<br />

Post Fishing Company. The City of<br />

Dresden, a wooden freighter collected<br />

the fish in pound nets from Erieau<br />

to Sandwich and then delivered to<br />

Sandusky.<br />

Eventually, the federal government<br />

of Canada took control of the fisheries<br />

in 1903. Many individuals fished the<br />

lake to Port Dover. The coming of the<br />

railroad in 1894 opened opportunities<br />

for the Erieau fishermen. Prices were<br />

fairer as the packing plant processed<br />

and marketed the fish.<br />

I remember many a drive in the<br />

summer to Erieau to buy fish. It tastes<br />

better when it is cooked fresh.<br />

Coal played a big part for 70 years in<br />

the “Eau,” as the railroad ran through<br />

the village. The first steam locomotives<br />

arrived in Erieau in 1894. The village<br />

grew and with this growth came hotels,<br />

a dance hall and baths. Soon residents<br />

from Blenheim and Chatham started<br />

building cottages. Unfortunately, the<br />

coal industry dried up in 1964.<br />

Erieau has many assets… long<br />

sandy beaches, fishing and boating. I<br />

remember afternoons sunbathing on<br />

these beaches and walking along its<br />

shores. The relaxation it brings is a<br />

balm to my soul.<br />

When in Erieau, have a beer at<br />

the Bayside Brewery and restaurant.<br />

Sit at their outside patio and take<br />

in Rondeau Bay as you dine on<br />

delicious food—don’t forget their<br />

beer! They have a nice selection of<br />

their own brews. Another good eating<br />

establishment is Molly & OJ’s. This<br />

eating establishment has been in the<br />

village for years and is known far and<br />

wide.<br />

Be sure to stop into a gift shop called<br />

The Gift Cabin which carries, jewellery,<br />

clothing, purses, nautical accents and<br />

more.<br />

The Saturday of the Civic Holiday<br />

weekend, July 30th this year, is a good<br />

time to come for “Art on the Boulevard.”<br />

This annual event attracts crowds to<br />

view and purchase from many vendors.<br />

Another to-do is the McGeachy Pond<br />

Trail. This trail runs along the lake.<br />

You can see many birds and it is very<br />

peaceful. Climb up the observation<br />

tower; the view is worth it.<br />

I hope you will come to Erieau,<br />

enjoy the beaches, the trails and<br />

the restaurants. Enjoy an afternoon<br />

of fishing or bring a book to spend<br />

time relaxing on the beach or on the<br />

boulevard. You will find the people<br />

friendly and the experience worth your<br />

while.<br />

Don’t educate your children to be rich.<br />

1<br />

educate them to be happy so when<br />

they grow up, they will know the value<br />

of things, not the price.<br />

Eat your food as medicine, otherwise<br />

2 you’ll have to eat medicine as food.<br />

The one who loves you will never<br />

3<br />

leave you because even if there are 100<br />

reasons to give up, they will fine a single<br />

one to hold on.<br />

There is a big difference between a human<br />

4<br />

being and being human. Only a few really<br />

understand it.<br />

You are loved when you are born, you’ll be loved<br />

5 when you die. In between, you have to manage.<br />

DICCTOO PROVERBS<br />

RR PRROOVV<br />

O ERRBSS<br />

1. Look before you leap.<br />

He who hesitates is lost.<br />

2. If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.<br />

Don't beat your head against a stone wall.<br />

3. Absence makes the heart grow fonder.<br />

Out of sight, out of mind.<br />

4. Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.<br />

Don't cross the bridge until you come to it.<br />

5. Two heads are better than one.<br />

Paddle your own canoe.<br />

6. Haste makes waste.<br />

Time waits for no man.<br />

7. You're never too old to learn.<br />

You can't teach an old dog new tricks.<br />

8. A word to the wise is sufficient.<br />

Talk is cheap.<br />

9. It's better to be safe than sorry.<br />

Nothing ventured, nothing gained.<br />

10. Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.<br />

Nice guys finish last.<br />

11. Hitch your wagon to a star.<br />

Don't bite off more that you can chew.<br />

12. Don't judge a book by its cover.<br />

Clothes make the man.<br />

13. The squeaking wheel gets the grease.<br />

Silence is golden.<br />

14. Birds of a feather flock together.<br />

Opposites attract.<br />

15. Winners never quit.<br />

Quit while you're ahead.<br />

16. Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to<br />

speak out and remove all doubt.<br />

The squeeky wheel gets the grease.<br />

17. Actions speak louder than words.<br />

The pen is mightier than the sword.<br />

18. Look before you leap.<br />

He who hesitates is lost.<br />

Ten Commandments<br />

Thou shall not worry, for worry is the most unproductive of<br />

all human activities.<br />

Thou shall not be fearful, for most of the things we fear<br />

never come to pass.<br />

Thou shall not cross bridges before you come to them, for<br />

no one yet has succeeded in accomplishing this.<br />

Thou shall face each problem as it comes. You can only<br />

handle one at a time anyway.<br />

Thou shall not take problems to bed with you, for they<br />

make very poor bedfellows.<br />

Thou shall not borrow other people’s problems. They can<br />

better care for them than you can.<br />

Thou shall not try to relive yesterday for good or ill, it is<br />

forever gone. Concentrate on what is happening in your<br />

life and be happy now!<br />

Thou shall be a good listener, for only when you listen do<br />

you hear ideas different from your own. It is hard to learn<br />

something new when you are talking, and some people do<br />

know more than you do.<br />

Thou shall not become “bogged down” by frustration, for<br />

90% of it is rooted in self-pity and will only interfere with<br />

positive action.<br />

Thou shall count thy blessings, never overlooking the small<br />

ones, for a lot of small blessings add up to big ones.<br />

CHATHAM, KENT BRIDGE, BOTHWELL, THAMESVILLE & PALMYRA<br />

PARKS<br />

Blueberry Farm · Café · Bakery · Country Store<br />

The easy drive through Southwestern<br />

Ontario’s farm country to get to Parks<br />

Blueberries is nearly as pleasant as the<br />

sweet smell of warm turnovers greeting<br />

visitors when they arrive.<br />

I say nearly because there is nothing<br />

quite as wonderful as the aroma of<br />

delicious treats coming out of the oven<br />

under the careful supervision of head<br />

baker and general manager Tina Alderdice.<br />

Tina has worked at the U-Pick blueberry<br />

farm for 27 years and perfected Parks’<br />

recipes for everything from blueberry pie<br />

and turnovers to blueberry cream cheese<br />

squares, blueberry white chocolate<br />

scones and more.<br />

They are all available in Parks’ store<br />

for customers to take home or to enjoy in<br />

the spacious café that also serves up deli<br />

sandwiches, soups, salads, and quiche.<br />

The Parks’ family started their<br />

blueberry farm 43 years ago along<br />

Highway 2 between Bothwell and<br />

Thamesville in Chatham-Kent’s<br />

northeast end.<br />

It’s grown into more than 45 acres of<br />

blueberry bushes carefully maintained<br />

under netting and some of the oldest<br />

bushes in Ontario. The blossoms are<br />

pollinated every spring with hundreds<br />

of beehives brought in to help the<br />

naturally-occurring bee population get<br />

the job done.<br />

In 2013, Bruce and Hope Parks took<br />

over the operation from his parents, Bill<br />

and Diane, and together they operate<br />

a busy U-Pick, wholesale blueberry<br />

business, café and country store.<br />

It’s a popular destination visited by<br />

more than 10,000 customers every<br />

summer who can easily spend a couple<br />

of hours or an entire day, says Hope.<br />

“The heart of it all is the blueberries<br />

Story and photo by<br />

Cathy Dobson, Sarnia<br />

and people tell us all the time what a<br />

great day trip it is,” she said. Parks offers<br />

free wagon rides into the blueberry<br />

fields and 10 different varieties of fresh<br />

berries. The most popular tend to be<br />

Blue Crops, Dukes and Northlands.<br />

“Our customers love putting in the<br />

effort to get their own berries,” Hope<br />

said. “If you are a kid, it teaches you<br />

the richness of nature and something<br />

about farming. I think it’s a very good<br />

experience for children no matter how<br />

old they are.”<br />

Pickers who are eight years and older<br />

pay $5 per person to pick their own<br />

berries. It’s not meant as an entrance<br />

fee but to encourage picking, explained<br />

Hope. The $5 charge is deducted from<br />

the cost of what you pick.<br />

During the busy summer months,<br />

the café and country store are also<br />

busy. Nearly 60 employees are hired to<br />

keep all aspects of the business running<br />

smoothly.<br />

“We’re really proud of our home<br />

baking and I love talking to the customers<br />

who come in to have something to<br />

eat,” said Hope. She also selects the<br />

housewares, clothing, jewellery, toys<br />

and novelty items available in the<br />

country store.<br />

Blueberry season generally spans July<br />

and August. Visitors are encouraged to<br />

check out Parks’ website to see varieties<br />

that are ready for picking. The Parks’<br />

freezers are also packed with boxes<br />

of frozen blueberries for sale. New in<br />

recent years are greenhouses growing<br />

strawberries in the shoulder seasons.<br />

Throughout the summer, Parks<br />

Blueberries is open seven days a week<br />

(8 a.m. – 6 p.m) including holidays. Find<br />

Our<br />

Customers<br />

I just wanted to let you know that this entire past week we had an<br />

influx of new people to our area! At least 8 different couples mentioned<br />

to us that they found us through your Day Tripping publication and 3<br />

people had mentioned how they were saddened with Covid there<br />

wasn't a NEW edition - but I made their day and set them straight -<br />

giving them their own copies!! Two couples mentioned how traveling<br />

to these stores would be what they do for fun with the remainder of<br />

August! YAY!!! So what I am trying to say is, THANK YOU!! And Yes, YOU<br />

are making a difference!! We certainly appreciate the help! Please fwd<br />

this email along to the rest of your team!! 5 Golden Stars, folks!! :)<br />

Greenhill Gardens<br />

If you happen to be find yourself near<br />

Wilkesport Ontario, about 30 minutes<br />

south of Sarnia, you might notice that<br />

there’s not much to do. There are a few<br />

homes, a post office<br />

and the library, a<br />

community centre,<br />

a baseball field and<br />

that’s about it. But<br />

venture one side<br />

road to the west on<br />

Wilkesport Line and<br />

as you approach the<br />

intersection of Indian<br />

Creek Road you’ll<br />

notice Canadian<br />

and American flags<br />

rising out of the wheat field. Welcome<br />

to Greenhill Gardens, an oasis in the<br />

middle of nowhere.<br />

I first stumbled upon this years ago<br />

while taking a shortcut on these back<br />

roads and came to an<br />

intersection where<br />

there was a neatly<br />

placed wall of armor<br />

stone in a field for<br />

no apparent reason.<br />

I thought to myself<br />

that it didn’t get<br />

there by itself, but<br />

why would anyone<br />

want it there? That<br />

would have been<br />

around 2008, when Joy and Bill Robson<br />

decided to build a six acre garden to<br />

“give back” to the community. The<br />

original plan was to donate the land to<br />

a conservation group, but after failing to<br />

Story and photos by Mark Moran<br />

Céad mile fáilte<br />

(One Hundred Thousand Welcomes)<br />

find a partner they slowly transformed<br />

the swamp into a magnificent park,<br />

complete with three ponds, walkways,<br />

bridges, waterfalls and benches for<br />

people to picnic,<br />

enjoy and seek<br />

serenity. My last<br />

trip there was at<br />

8 o’clock in the<br />

morning. There was<br />

a chill in the air<br />

along with the sound<br />

of countless birds,<br />

and frogs leaping<br />

into the ponds.<br />

There’s also a<br />

small welcome cabin<br />

and it’s nice to relax in there for a few<br />

moments, to leaf through the guestbook,<br />

look at family photos of the Robsons and<br />

see all the notices of weddings that will<br />

be taking place here. I gather there is no<br />

cost, but don’t know<br />

how people make<br />

reservations for the<br />

many wedding and<br />

graduation photos<br />

that are taken there.<br />

Among a number of<br />

beautiful vistas at<br />

Green Hill Gardens<br />

the most popular<br />

would be a long<br />

covered bridge,<br />

perfect for a processional, and a great<br />

photo from any angle. Portions of it<br />

are covered in wisteria and must be<br />

absolutely stunning when in bloom.<br />

There are even numerous toys to<br />

keep kids and grandkids amused while<br />

parents stroll the grounds. Rumour has<br />

it that Dolly Parton made a special stop<br />

here and signed the guestbook.<br />

Greenhill Gardens is a hidden gem<br />

that is yours to discover. There is no<br />

admission, not even a donation box<br />

that I could find. It’s a wonderful place<br />

to walk around and, if accessibility is<br />

an issue, the paths and bridges are<br />

wide enough for wheelchairs or you<br />

can drive through with your window<br />

down to take in the sounds in the fresh,<br />

country air.<br />

Joy and Bill Robson were married for<br />

56 years and both have passed away<br />

in recent years, but this labour of love<br />

that they worked at tirelessly will live<br />

on and awaits your visit. It truly is an<br />

“Oasis in the middle of nowhere.”<br />

Having a Selective Memory<br />

When you get to a<br />

certain age like I have, it’s<br />

acceptable but not really<br />

comforting to know that<br />

you’re not the only one<br />

who has a problem with<br />

remembering names—<br />

including your own<br />

relatives and friends. It’s<br />

particularly frustrating<br />

too, when as a newspaper<br />

correspondent, I can’t<br />

remember the name of<br />

the person whose picture I’ve just taken<br />

when I should. I wish I could say that<br />

the problem started only recently, but<br />

it didn’t. I know for a fact that mine<br />

started back in high school (1959-61)<br />

when I couldn’t remember the name of<br />

a schoolmate during summer vacation<br />

when my mother asked me who she<br />

was.<br />

As an avid player of the board and<br />

now online word game Scrabble, I’ve<br />

become a regular user of the dictionary<br />

to confirm my spelling. I thought my<br />

decent into spelling mania was a recent<br />

problem, but I found out recently that it<br />

just isn’t so. These days of computers,<br />

though, the problem of correct spelling<br />

is being solved somewhat by the spell<br />

check programming—unless, of course,<br />

there are two spellings for a word like<br />

neighbor and neighbour.<br />

This year, as a longtime poet and short<br />

story writer since my early schooldays,<br />

I made a resolution to go through my<br />

old school files to look for ideas for new<br />

short stories, etc. To be honest, English<br />

By Dot Sale, Belmont<br />

composition was my<br />

best subject, though not<br />

the grammar part. I had<br />

happily saved my English<br />

literature books, but<br />

didn’t realize how much<br />

of my composition work<br />

I had also saved until I<br />

started looking through<br />

the old files. I’ve always<br />

remembered getting<br />

an A on a descriptive<br />

paragraph, and<br />

enjoying participating<br />

in spelling bees. (Don’t get me started<br />

on history class, as curiously it was my<br />

worst subject, with thankfully no notes<br />

left now to prove it.)<br />

Imagine my surprise and delight<br />

when I started going through my files<br />

and found more than one composition<br />

marked with an A. Along the way I’d<br />

noticed that my spelling then was not<br />

as perfect as I remembered it being.<br />

Imagine my surprise too to find a note<br />

from my English teacher confirming it.<br />

Her note read:<br />

Dorothy, (as I was known then and<br />

still am, but only when necessary) I<br />

think your poems and stories are quite<br />

good and show much imagination and<br />

invention. You should continue to do<br />

much reading and writing.<br />

Try to watch these spelling errors!<br />

E. Lounsbury.<br />

With proofreading a seemingly<br />

lost art now, even with the advent of<br />

computers, at least I’m not alone in<br />

this too.<br />

In Petrolia's<br />

Restored, Historic<br />

Post Office<br />

Moments before the<br />

curtain rose for the debut<br />

performance of Dynamic<br />

Duos at Victoria Playhouse<br />

Petrolia, David Hogan<br />

welcomed the sold out<br />

crowd and happened to<br />

ask the audience if anyone<br />

didn’t know him. Not a<br />

single hand went up…<br />

everyone that’s been to a<br />

VPP production in recent<br />

years knows David Hogan.<br />

He’s one half of the Artistic Director<br />

team with partner David Rogers who<br />

ironically was expected to welcome the<br />

crowd. Hogan, or Hogie to his friends<br />

(so everyone) was supposed to be in<br />

Cambridge bringing their home grown<br />

production of Fiddler on the Loose<br />

to a new audience but had a day off.<br />

Personally, I was looking forward to<br />

hearing David Rogers, or Rog, welcome<br />

the crowd because his dry humour<br />

apparently equals Hogie’s always<br />

gregarious nature. It seems that the two<br />

couldn’t be more different but wow, do<br />

they ever work well together.<br />

Victoria Playhouse Petrolia has been<br />

welcoming crowds for decades now,<br />

with capable staff and strong community<br />

support over the years, but something<br />

changed when David and David came<br />

to town in 2012, and it’s been full steam<br />

ahead since then. Even Covid couldn’t<br />

dampen the enthusiasm for what they<br />

dub the “Season Worth Waiting For.” It’s<br />

been slow cooking for three years.<br />

For starters, David Hogan is an<br />

unstoppable ball of energy and you<br />

can’t not like him. And while they’ve<br />

both performed in countless roles<br />

and theatres, David Rogers was “The<br />

Phantom” in “The Phantom of The<br />

Opera,” and that type of instant<br />

credibility meant a whole lot when<br />

they came to a small town that’s full of<br />

character and torn between its love for<br />

hockey and theatre and country music<br />

and its legendary oil history.<br />

Credibility is exactly what they brought<br />

to the table. Stellar actors, musicians and<br />

vocalists from the stages of Stratford and<br />

New York and Hollywood have been<br />

calling Petrolia home, and even the most<br />

famous of them such as Michael Learned<br />

and Ralph Waite (Ma and Pa Walton<br />

from The Waltons) lined up to meet the<br />

theatre’s guests after each performance.<br />

Learned had been waiting two years to<br />

play the lead role in “On Golden Pond”<br />

David Rogers, left, and David Hogan<br />

this year but suffered an injury. So the<br />

incredibly suitable replacement they<br />

found is Karen Grassle. I have no idea how<br />

two guys working in Petrolia, as talented<br />

and wonderful as they are, managed to<br />

get Mrs. Ingalls from Little House on the<br />

Prairie to replace Ma Walton when the<br />

chips were down and they had to come<br />

up with a quick solution.<br />

Many of the shows at VPP are musicals<br />

and the Davids have also nurtured an<br />

amazing cast of young performers (and<br />

supporting staff) bringing them back<br />

in different and sometimes recurring<br />

roles. Many of these performers are<br />

now household names to this theatre’s<br />

many fans. Musical Director Mark<br />

Payne certainly deserves a shout out<br />

for what his talent has meant to the<br />

many productions. After many years of<br />

fabulous, sold out shows they must now<br />

relish the opportunity to create new<br />

productions to suit the talent they’ve<br />

played a part in honing.<br />

There’s also a dedicated team<br />

managing the operations, and great<br />

support from the town to enable the<br />

artistic directors to do their best work.<br />

That hasn’t always been the case, and<br />

many small town theatres still struggle<br />

to stay afloat year after year, but this is<br />

a great example of how well it can work.<br />

In hindsight, it’s hard to fathom that<br />

many residents didn’t want to invest<br />

the money to rebuild Victoria Hall after<br />

a massive fire burned it to the ground<br />

in 1989. Thirty-three years later it<br />

is unquestionably the heart of this<br />

community, and that heart is beating<br />

stronger than ever. And VPP, the theatre<br />

within this National Historic Site is<br />

a well oiled machine, in a town that<br />

knows well oiled machines.<br />

Be sure to meet David and David<br />

when you come to Victoria Playhouse<br />

Petrolia. It’s pretty easy… Hogie will<br />

probably walk you across the street and<br />

might even take you to your car.<br />

<strong>Summer</strong> <strong>2022</strong>


This is the end of the first section, but there are two more sections.<br />

Continuing an Era<br />

By Shauna Ward, Petrolia • Photos from Oil Museum of Canada Facebook page<br />

Tucked away on Kelly Road, in the<br />

quaint village of Oil Springs, Ontario,<br />

a historic entity exists. For over 60<br />

years The Oil Museum of Canada has<br />

captured our hearts and intrigued our<br />

minds by taking us on an expedition<br />

back in time, to learn the story of<br />

Canada’s oil pioneers. The idea to create<br />

a museum from the first commercial<br />

oil well in North America came about<br />

at the 1958 Centennial Ceremony. The<br />

residents wanted to create a place that<br />

recognised the innovation, hard work<br />

and contributions themselves and<br />

their ancestors devoted to the global<br />

development of the oil industry. With<br />

great support from many big-name<br />

commercial sponsors, the municipalities<br />

of Sarnia, the Village of Oil Springs and<br />

Lambton County, the vision became a<br />

reality. With the continued support of<br />

the residents, schools, businesses and<br />

all the surrounding communities the<br />

museum continues to thrive.<br />

In the last 60 years, the museum<br />

has welcomed hundreds of thousands<br />

of people from all over the globe, all of<br />

whom have come to perceive a great<br />

era of the past.<br />

I still remember taking a trip as a child<br />

to the museum with my school, before I<br />

called this area home. I will never forget<br />

the strange but sweet smell of crude oil<br />

and getting to experience the history<br />

that was the heart of our community.<br />

It was incredible. Now, some years<br />

later, my son was able to explore and<br />

appreciate the same trip with his school,<br />

one that he will never forget. And when<br />

I took my younger boys on one of the<br />

various PA Day events, their reaction<br />

was pure gold. The wonder and awe on<br />

their little faces when they heard what<br />

everything was, or had been, how the<br />

pumps worked and seeing all the “cool<br />

stuff” as they put it, that had been well<br />

taken care of and exhibited to make you<br />

feel like you’d taken a step back in time.<br />

Truly a remarkable memory, for kids<br />

and adults alike.<br />

The museum is showcased on a vast<br />

10 acres, on which you will encounter<br />

many historic buildings including the<br />

original train station that was used<br />

during the black gold era. All these<br />

buildings, some of which endured<br />

significant improvements recently,<br />

are filled with information and<br />

artifacts that take you right back<br />

to the dawn of the petroleum<br />

industry, including the wellpreserved<br />

national historic drilling<br />

site of James Miller Williams from<br />

1858.<br />

Inside, you can enjoy a guided tour or<br />

watch a video in the museum’s theatre,<br />

browse the many exhibits featuring<br />

drilling tools, and countless artifacts<br />

from the era. Hear stories of drillers<br />

from far and wide that came for a<br />

chance at a new life in the place that we<br />

now call home.<br />

So, if it’s been a while since your last<br />

visit to the museum, or if you’ve never<br />

had the pleasure to go and experience<br />

what the Oil Museum of Canada has<br />

taken so much pride in, make this<br />

the year to venture to Oil Springs and<br />

discover it for yourself.<br />

Publisher’s note: I took that school trip<br />

as well, before I called this area home,<br />

and will never forget the strange smell of<br />

crude oil. There is also much more history<br />

to expose yourself to just by driving at<br />

a snail’s pace on the backroads of Oil<br />

Springs on the self-guided tour or one<br />

of the horse-drawn wagon tours. Come<br />

out and explore the new renovations<br />

and enjoy the numerous events that are<br />

planned for this summer like Black Gold<br />

Fest on July 9th.<br />

Gone Fishin’<br />

by Joanne vanDam, Lucknow<br />

There’s so much work, I could get done.<br />

But, a work free day’s my mission.<br />

Instead of cleaning this old house,<br />

I think I’ll just go fishin’.<br />

I’ll grab my pole and tackle-box.<br />

Some lures, some worms, a spinner.<br />

My goal? A peaceful river’s edge<br />

and a nice big trout, for dinner.<br />

After all the time, that I have spent,<br />

getting lures and worms and slugs,<br />

The only thing that’s biting,<br />

are black flies and other bugs.<br />

My first cast is a beauty.<br />

I’m as proud as I can be.<br />

‘Till I notice that my line is caught,<br />

behind me, in a tree.<br />

It takes some time to get it down.<br />

By the time I get it free.<br />

I find my line is broken and<br />

the hook is in my knee.<br />

One band-aid and a new hook,<br />

A juicy worm and bobber.<br />

My second cast is better.<br />

At least it’s in the water.<br />

But, the day’s been so relaxing.<br />

Fresh air and sunshine’s nice.<br />

I should do this more often<br />

and I only fell in, twice.<br />

But, now it’s time to head home.<br />

The fishing’s been quite poor.<br />

I’m soaking wet and itchy<br />

and I’ve just lost one more lure.<br />

Today was not a failure.<br />

Though I have no fish to roast.<br />

I got to spend it fishing and<br />

for supper, I’ll have toast.<br />

FOREST, CAMLACHIE and KETTLE & STONY POINT FIRST NATION<br />

As reported by<br />

Lake Life Studio<br />

Justine Goulet grew up on the<br />

shores of Lake Huron. Her family had<br />

a boat at Cedar Cove Marina, and in<br />

the summers that is where she spent a<br />

lot of her time. “I would go swimming<br />

and wakeboarding everyday. For<br />

me, the lake is life.” Goulet was also<br />

passionate about art and theatre,<br />

and she knew from a young age that<br />

she would work in the arts. In 2012,<br />

she completed her Bachelor of Fine<br />

Arts in Performance Production at<br />

Ryerson University and apprenticed at<br />

Canada’s National Ballet School in the<br />

wardrobe department. “Then I moved<br />

to Dublin, Ireland and completed my<br />

Masters in Philosophy of Performance<br />

www.hashtaglocal.com<br />

Art from Trinity College.”<br />

When Goulet returned home,<br />

she continued working in<br />

the theatre industry until she<br />

discovered the art of glass fusing.<br />

Bonnie Doone Glass, in Forest,<br />

hired Goulet on as an apprentice.<br />

“They were amazing mentors<br />

and taught me everything<br />

about glass fusing.” After two<br />

years, the business closed and<br />

Goulet decided to establish her<br />

own space for creating custom<br />

glass pieces and showcasing other<br />

artists. “The vision was to have a<br />

combined storefront and studio space<br />

so people could see things being<br />

made and speak<br />

with the artist. I<br />

was also excited<br />

to create larger<br />

glass pieces like<br />

vessel sinks,<br />

cabinet inserts,<br />

and backsplash<br />

panels,” shares<br />

Goulet.<br />

Lake Life Studio,<br />

located at 3811<br />

Lakeshore Road<br />

in Camlachie, was<br />

established in July<br />

2015. The studio<br />

sells pottery,<br />

art, jewellery,<br />

decorative items, and apparel, all<br />

with a lake or beach vibe. “We are<br />

not just a shopping experience. You<br />

can explore my studio space and see<br />

what I’m working on. You can book a<br />

glass fusing workshop for yourself or<br />

a group of friends, and you can meet<br />

the different artists as they drop off<br />

their products.” Collaborating with<br />

makers and clients is the most<br />

exciting part of owning her own<br />

business. “I’ve met so many<br />

sweet people. We work together<br />

and help each other, but we also<br />

have wine on Saturday nights.”<br />

Everything in Lake Life Studio is<br />

handcrafted, with the exception<br />

of the apparel line, though those<br />

are screen printed locally. “The<br />

apparel line began with two styles of<br />

shirts consisting of my hand-drawn<br />

designs, but has expanded to different<br />

types of clothing and accessories.”<br />

It wasn’t until 2017 that the feather<br />

logo and branding came together.<br />

“Three percent of our apparel sales go<br />

to the Lake Huron Centre for Coastal<br />

Conservation. They are committed to<br />

protecting and restoring Lake Huron’s<br />

coast and coastal ecosystem. I love the<br />

lake and I want to be a good steward,<br />

so donating a portion of our apparel<br />

sales felt right.”<br />

Lake Life Studio also sponsors<br />

and organizes beach clean ups in<br />

collaboration with other businesses<br />

each spring and hosts a winter market<br />

every December.<br />

Need to Know<br />

WHAT: A fabulous, casual beach<br />

community on Lake Huron with great food<br />

213 kms north of Windsor and 220 kms<br />

west of Toronto.<br />

I’ve spent many a day kicking down<br />

the streets of Lahaina on Maui. I’ve<br />

paraded down Duval Street in Key West<br />

and strolled the piers of California from<br />

San Diego to Santa Cruz. I’ve been lucky<br />

enough to hit the beaches of Thailand and<br />

Sardinia, of St. Lucia and Senegal.<br />

Yet somehow, despite some three<br />

decades living in Toronto, I’d missed<br />

spending any time in Grand Bend.<br />

It won’t happen again. Because there<br />

are few things I love more than a good<br />

beach town. And because Grand Bend<br />

might be the best beach town in Canada.<br />

It took me all of about two minutes<br />

to fall in love with this place. I pulled off<br />

Highway 21 and cruised under the giant<br />

“Grand Bend” sign, with its brilliant<br />

yellow sun, and spotted a great mix of<br />

options: sushi restaurants, t-shirt shops,<br />

a small mini-golf course and, the sure<br />

Grand Bend and Lake Huron Beaches<br />

sign of a great beach town, casual spots<br />

selling the kind of French fries that smell<br />

like summer.<br />

The first store I walked into was Archies<br />

Surf Shop, which sells high-quality tees<br />

and sweats with simple, classic design.<br />

Some guys love a crisp Armani suit,<br />

but I love nothing more than a $25 tee<br />

shirt with a bold logo of a great beach<br />

destination. And I found lots to love at<br />

Archies.<br />

I had a kiddie-sized vanilla-chocolate<br />

cone at Dairy Dip; the perfect snack on<br />

a summer’s day, and took pictures of<br />

brilliant white straw hats that were calling<br />

my name, despite my having two or three<br />

of them at home already that get little use.<br />

The beach has a series of volleyball<br />

courts and makes for a great family<br />

destination.<br />

There’s also a pretty river, the Ausable,<br />

that feeds into Lake Huron and a small,<br />

attractive lighthouse.<br />

Be sure to take a stroll past the pink,<br />

soft green and baby blue Muskoka chairs<br />

in front of the Bonnie Doone Manor, the<br />

only motel that fronts on the beach.<br />

Just a few minutes away is The Pinery<br />

Provincial Park, where you can rent a jet<br />

ski or, more to my liking, dip a canoe<br />

paddle in a small lake while gazing at<br />

brilliant white flowers on a deep green<br />

lily pad.<br />

The 10-km-long beach has massive<br />

sand dunes fronting Lake Huron, and<br />

the area features thick forests of Oak<br />

Savannah.<br />

The Pine Dale Inn is a charming place<br />

to bed down for the night in Grand Bend.<br />

The Inn has been a family-run place for<br />

some 40 years and has an indoor pool<br />

and whirlpool, as well as quiet gardens<br />

and a small, covered gazebo that’s<br />

perfect for reading or a mid-day snooze.<br />

The Inn backs onto the Ausable River,<br />

so it’s a great spot to watch turtles sun<br />

themselves on a rock or dip your line or<br />

just relax by the water’s edge.<br />

They also have a small pond out front<br />

with red and white Muskoka chairs.<br />

Other amenities include meeting<br />

rooms, a pool table, video games and gas<br />

barbecues; making it ideal for families<br />

who don’t want the expense of eating out<br />

all the time.<br />

“Jim’s Tips”<br />

Located on the main street in town,<br />

which, oddly enough, is called Main<br />

Street, Midori Sushi serves up fabulous<br />

sushi and other Japanese treats.<br />

Check out the Sunset Arts Gallery, which<br />

has lovely photos of old barns in deeply<br />

emotional and almost ancient-looking<br />

browns, paintings of white sailboats on<br />

a neon blue lake, polished wooden bowls<br />

and sparkling beach glass jewellery.<br />

Speaking of sunsets, various groups<br />

have rated the sunsets along the coast<br />

of Lake Huron as some of the best in the<br />

world. I agree.<br />

Grand Bend Parasailing does single,<br />

double and triple parasail trips on Lake<br />

Huron.<br />

Formerly Smackwater Jacks, 71 Italian<br />

Grille is right on the Ausable River in<br />

downtown Grand Bend, next to the Sunset<br />

Arts Gallery.<br />

A little further north, Kincardine is a<br />

wonderful town on the shores of Lake<br />

Huron. Every Saturday night at 8 p.m. in<br />

summer, Kincardine Scottish Pipe Band<br />

marches down the main street, followed<br />

by throngs of locals and tourists alike,<br />

then heads off to perform at Victoria Park.<br />

It’s a marvellous slice of Canadiana.<br />

North of Kincardine you’ll find Sauble<br />

Beach, another outstanding Ontario<br />

beach town with large sand dunes and a<br />

great California beach vibe. If only Brian<br />

Wilson had been here, he surely would’ve<br />

included it in a Beach Boys song.<br />

The Great White Squirrel Hunt<br />

We love your travel magazine and<br />

would like to share a funny story about<br />

when we were <strong>Daytripping</strong>. You guys<br />

always have fantastic suggestions<br />

about where to go in S.W. Ontario...<br />

keep up the great work!<br />

It was a sweltering July afternoon<br />

when my family, ever the intrepid<br />

adventurers, descended on the lovely<br />

town of Exeter, Ontario, for the first<br />

time. While my grandma and cousin<br />

were interested in shopping and my<br />

dad only wanted to pursue something<br />

from the ice cream parlour, my mum<br />

knew the real motivation of this trip:<br />

to catch a glimpse of the mysterious,<br />

elusive white squirrel.<br />

So, we set out together into one of the<br />

parks, hoping to spy the cryptic, nearlegendary<br />

creature. Sadly, this turned<br />

out nothing like the imaginary, BBCnature-show-like<br />

sequence of events<br />

that we tourists had predicted.<br />

First, there was all this trudging about<br />

in the forest. For almost an hour, all<br />

we could see were tree trunks. The air<br />

around us was green from the vibrant<br />

light filtering in from the canopy, which<br />

was admittedly gorgeous, but it had<br />

nothing to do with the squirrel pictures<br />

we so feverishly desired. Over a bridge<br />

we went, but… where were we? More<br />

forest stretched before us, as unending<br />

as one of our vacationing family<br />

arguments.<br />

Briefly, a female cardinal flitted across<br />

the boardwalk in front of us. “What was<br />

that?” my mum hissed, hyperalert.<br />

“It’s just a bird,” offered my dad,<br />

who’d turned his vigilance from<br />

By Bea Hanson, London<br />

Photo credit: Ronny D’Haene<br />

squirrels onto his unsuspecting prey:<br />

an after-dinner mint he’d found in his<br />

fanny pack. Meanwhile, the cardinal<br />

rapidly vanished, like a mirage.<br />

So, onwards we marched in our<br />

fearless expedition. Well, nearly fearless<br />

—my dad had now become increasingly<br />

fearful he’d have to hit the bathroom.<br />

“There are public washrooms at the<br />

park entrance,” murmured my mum,<br />

focused intently on the surrounding<br />

nature.<br />

“Come back quick,” whispered my<br />

cousin. “We might see the squirrel!”<br />

As my dad turned on his heel and<br />

sauntered off through the humid forest,<br />

his form growing more and more distant,<br />

I began to wonder if this squirrel was an<br />

unknowable myth, like a smaller, cuter<br />

version of Bigfoot or the Loch Ness<br />

Monster. But then, suddenly, a telltale<br />

flash of white made itself known in my<br />

periphery. I slowly, silently swivelled to<br />

face it. There it was! On an old stump,<br />

under an unbroken ray of sun that shot<br />

in through a gap in the trees, sat the<br />

famously pale, enigmatic rodent.<br />

My mum and cousin crouched,<br />

cameras poised, ready to take in this<br />

striking phenomenon. My grandma,<br />

too, trundled up, but then hesitated.<br />

She gazed plaintively after my dad,<br />

who was about to round a bend in the<br />

path. Then, she began gesticulating<br />

wildly.<br />

“COME BACK!” she boomed,<br />

waving her hands. “LOOK! IT’S A<br />

WHIIITE SQUUUIIIIIRRRRELL!”<br />

Alas, all this excitement proved<br />

too much for our nervous, creamcoloured<br />

little friend. Terrified, he bolted<br />

away. My mum returned from the<br />

edge of the boardwalk, disappointedly<br />

showing us her not-so-prized pics of an<br />

indistinguishable white blur.<br />

Hours later, as we left Exeter with<br />

ice cream treats but no decent squirrel<br />

photos, my dad pointed calmly out the<br />

window at one of the houses in a nearby<br />

subdivision. “Hey, guys, look at their<br />

birdfeeder!” he chuckled. Clustered<br />

on the house’s front lawn, nibbling at<br />

seeds from a birdfeeder, were three<br />

white squirrels! My grandma, my<br />

cousin and I smiled with glee. My mum<br />

nearly veered the car off the road into<br />

a garden gnome. At last, this was the<br />

photo opportunity she’d been waiting<br />

for—and these squirrels were much<br />

hungrier for attention!<br />

Six years later, this trip is still vividly<br />

emblazoned in our minds. It taught<br />

us all a very important lesson: when<br />

travelling, don’t look too hard for<br />

things, because they’ll find you! (Oh,<br />

and also, know where the ice cream<br />

parlour is.)<br />

Phrase Origins Pull Out All the Stops<br />

Refers to using every possible effort to achieve something.<br />

Pipe organs have many sets of pipes, with knobs called<br />

stops, to control the air flow. Usually they are<br />

strategically pulled out to achieve a specific sound, but<br />

when they are ALL pulled out, it results in a very full<br />

sound, with maximum volume.<br />

Drawn to Water<br />

From my local walks in the<br />

neighbourhood to trips within Southern<br />

Ontario, I see how a similar pattern has<br />

emerged. I am drawn to water. I also<br />

see how this area is blessed with an<br />

abundance of water.<br />

Water is one of the elements and is<br />

associated with the direction of West<br />

and the zodiac signs of Pisces, Cancer<br />

and Scorpio. The Moon and Venus are<br />

also associated with Water as is the<br />

Goddess and the season of autumn.<br />

Some of the magical properties of water<br />

are purification, intuition, dreams,<br />

rebirth or renewal, understanding and<br />

harmony.<br />

For me, I may plan my morning walk<br />

to pass by the nearby Thames River.<br />

Depending on recent precipitation<br />

amounts and type, I may find the water<br />

flowing gently or foaming as she rushes<br />

past. These conditions may evoke a<br />

sense of calm or invigorating energy<br />

and inspiration. Other times I may be<br />

in awe of the power of water or the<br />

peacefulness after a fresh snowfall.<br />

Walking and cycling routes have also<br />

been built along the river so her path<br />

may be followed through the city.<br />

Downtown Goderich has to offer!<br />

WWW.GODERICHBIA.CA<br />

By Susan Iedema, London<br />

shores are home to such towns as<br />

Goderich, Bayfield, Port Elgin and<br />

Southampton to the North and Port<br />

Dover, Port Bruce, Port Burwell and Port<br />

Stanley to the South, to name just a few.<br />

Many take only an hour or two to reach.<br />

All beckon us to come visit.<br />

Beaches, as well as walkways built<br />

along these lakes, invite us to enjoy the<br />

sun and water or cycle and walk the<br />

paths. As in my hometown, I find I am<br />

once again drawn to the water’s edge<br />

when visiting these locales for the beauty<br />

and the therapeutic effect of water.<br />

In addition to being situated on<br />

the water, these lakeside towns host<br />

a plethora of eateries and<br />

unique shops to tease and<br />

tantalize.<br />

Some of my favourite stops<br />

are Shaw’s Ice Cream on the<br />

way back from a day trip<br />

to Port Stanley. A drive into<br />

or out of Goderich usually<br />

means a stop at Culbert’s<br />

Bakery where a wealth of<br />

delicious treats make the<br />

decision to pick just a few,<br />

quite difficult. Choosing Port<br />

Bruce as the destination<br />

most always means a delicious meal at<br />

the Corner View Café with a view of Lake<br />

Erie. I seem also to be drawn to food!<br />

A September trip to Port Elgin found<br />

me sitting on the beach reading one<br />

morning. The moon was still visible<br />

in the Western sky. A yogi had set up<br />

her mat on the beach and was working<br />

through her routine as walkers passed<br />

by. One lady and I commented to each<br />

other how peaceful it was on the quiet<br />

beach with the sun shining and the<br />

waves lapping our troubles away.<br />

So whether I am on my morning<br />

walk in the neighbourhood or in need of<br />

some <strong>Daytripping</strong>, I am sure my choice<br />

of destination will once again show how<br />

I am drawn to the healing element of<br />

water and the places located there.<br />

Steaming Ahead<br />

By Laurie Dunlop, Dresden<br />

Consider this not as an invitation, but<br />

as an entry on your ‘Must Do’ List this<br />

summer. Three days of being amazed<br />

and amused—a kaleidoscope of history<br />

brought to life, with a focus on farming.<br />

Most of us are familiar with combines<br />

operating on farms, but here, teams of<br />

horses pulling a variety of equipment<br />

are harvesting grain through several<br />

stages from field to threshing machine,<br />

involving several men as well. The<br />

horses are beautiful; the thresher and<br />

steam tractors used to make it run are<br />

huge; the working of it all is ingenious.<br />

No gas engines here—wood and coal<br />

heat huge tanks of water for the steam<br />

that powers the machinery. It’s a<br />

fascinating process.<br />

We see lumber neatly piled ready for<br />

sale. In Paisley, in August you can watch<br />

just what was involved to saw trees into<br />

usable boards. Machinery lined up is<br />

well over 60 feet in length and labour<br />

intensive is an understatement.<br />

A dedicated core group, hundreds<br />

of volunteers, with community and<br />

sponsor support have grown the initial<br />

mandate to preserve, restore, collect,<br />

display and demonstrate antique<br />

tractors, machinery and artifacts to the<br />

113-acre site of today with<br />

purpose specific buildings.<br />

This three day event is<br />

the premier show of it’s<br />

kind and the Bruce County<br />

Heritage Association has<br />

created an accessible family<br />

event of demonstrations,<br />

exhibits, music, food and<br />

entertainment.<br />

Each year focuses on a<br />

particular manufacturer—it’s<br />

Ford this year, along with<br />

lesser known classics. Be<br />

prepared to see 100’s of Ford tractors,<br />

ever evolving over the years. All along<br />

side jaw dropping, operating/running<br />

steam powered trucks, tractors and<br />

machinery—the Rumely Prairie Steam<br />

tractor is a standout. Most pieces are<br />

one-of-a-kind, rare finds. Fresh corn<br />

on the cob is cooked in the boiler of a<br />

steam tractor!<br />

From the time I parked my car for<br />

the 2019 show, I felt catered to. Tractorpulled,<br />

covered, open air coaches<br />

brought patrons onto the grounds, and<br />

from site to site continuously through<br />

the day. Classic auto show, a maze,<br />

tractor pulls, lifestyle & children’s<br />

programs, auctions, parades, live music,<br />

demonstrations, flea market, local art &<br />

creations in the Crafters building, pizza<br />

from a wood-fired oven, homemade ice<br />

cream, Friday Fish Fry (advance tickets)<br />

Saturday BBQ (tickets on site)… it’s a<br />

day remembered always.<br />

It’s a beautiful drive to Paisley, and<br />

a day of fun and amazing sights await.<br />

Reserve a campsite for an extended<br />

stay—every day is a little different.<br />

It was only a little more than a hundred<br />

years ago that there was no such thing as<br />

recorded sound or radio or television or<br />

telephone. These things didn’t exist. And<br />

didn’t exist ever before that either.<br />

Do you know what that means?<br />

It meant that the only human voices<br />

you ever heard were from real people<br />

within range of your actual hearing. ‘In<br />

real time’ as the phrase goes now.<br />

And the only time you heard any<br />

music was from the very actual<br />

instrument that was being played in<br />

your presence.<br />

There was no putting in a CD, DVD,<br />

tape or record into your car (there were<br />

none) or any other device to get instant<br />

sound. There was no television, radio,<br />

or cellphone either.<br />

Right away can you hear the world go<br />

quiet?<br />

Your own voice or someone else’s<br />

that you heard with your own ears at<br />

that moment were the only voices you<br />

ever heard.<br />

Only the piano, or guitar, or violin, or<br />

symphony orchestra, or any instrument<br />

in live performance, being played at that<br />

moment would be heard by you during<br />

your life. This was the only time you ever<br />

A Quieter Time<br />

by<br />

heard any music.<br />

And how often was that? How<br />

quiet was that?<br />

Is it any wonder that people<br />

loved to get together to socialize<br />

- talk, play some music, dance?<br />

It was such a delightful, rare<br />

experience. New and plentiful<br />

voices and music in a coming<br />

together in one small area for a<br />

moment in time - this must have been<br />

greatly anticipated and relished.<br />

The house you lived in would be quiet,<br />

quiet, quiet, except for the voices of the<br />

very people living there. Of course babies<br />

would cry, kids can be rambunctious,<br />

and adults can freely talk away in a<br />

household. Plus there would be sounds<br />

from any animals around. But one can<br />

see the decibel level would be way down<br />

immediately, except in extraordinary<br />

circumstances such as a terrible storm,<br />

or a noisy steam engine, or waterfalls, or<br />

falling trees or rocks, or the pounding of<br />

hammers, etc.<br />

Everyday sounds were caused in the<br />

moment by the actual thing making the<br />

sound. A door squeaks. A floor creaks.<br />

Dinner plates clatter a bit. The sound<br />

of pouring water, the wind in the trees.<br />

These sounds were made when you<br />

heard them. Not before, not sounds from<br />

some other place, not something not<br />

there with you at the moment, such as<br />

recorded sound gives you.<br />

How about books? Almost dead quiet<br />

except for the sound of the page turning.<br />

I think therefore every sound would<br />

be quite noticeable in this world of quiet.<br />

And any unfamiliar sound would stick<br />

Kenneth Lapointe<br />

from <strong>Daytripping</strong><br />

Sept-Oct 2009 issue<br />

out like a sore thumb and probably be<br />

investigated.<br />

The only time I’ve ever experienced<br />

such quiet was when I was in the middle<br />

of a wilderness setting in Ontario years<br />

ago. Myself and four friends were on a<br />

canoe trip, a hundred kilometres from<br />

any human habitation. There was no<br />

one else. There was no sound from any<br />

machine, any car, any road, any human<br />

whatsoever, except from our own selves.<br />

We had no recorded music, radio, or<br />

phones.<br />

I remember at one spot thinking we<br />

must be near a highway because of a<br />

loud whooshing sound. I couldn’t figure<br />

it out. What highway? There were none<br />

around. Then I realized it was only the<br />

wind blowing through the pines!<br />

One could get used to it. It would take<br />

a while though because of all the years of<br />

being accustomed to the modern barrage<br />

of sound we live with night and day,<br />

including ‘white noise,’ which is simply<br />

low-level, indistinguishable, continuous<br />

background sound.<br />

Perhaps we might wonder how<br />

anyone in these older times could have<br />

ever stood it. WAS IT ALL TOO QUIET?<br />

Perhaps we could ask however - what<br />

a different world, maybe a softer, quieter,<br />

more relaxed world, are we missing?<br />

Publisher’s note: I’m in the office by<br />

myself as I read this Kenneth, and if I<br />

eliminate the central air, the truck traffic<br />

outside, the refrigerator compressor, faint<br />

music from another computer and the<br />

sound of my own typing, I’ll be left with<br />

only the hum of 5 computers and a printer<br />

to keep me sane.<br />

SHOP<br />

LOCAL<br />

In the Great Lakes region we can boast of being<br />

surrounded by one of the largest continuous masses of<br />

freshwater in the world. These lakes, shared by Canada<br />

and the USA, have been a source of pride for many<br />

generations. Nearly 150 fish species are considered<br />

native to the Great Lakes. It’s my understanding that<br />

Pickerel (aka: Walleye), Perch and Trout are some of<br />

our areas cherished catches.<br />

What a treasure trove we have in our own backyards. The Great Lakes hold so<br />

much promise and fun. Whether you’re a serious angler, an outdoor fishing<br />

enthusiast or a child with a new pole, our area is rich with fish. The anglers in my<br />

family speak proudly of what they’ve caught and the fun and friendships that<br />

surround their outings.<br />

Personally, I don’t own my own fishing pole, but I DO have a number of cherished<br />

family members who do and they are eager to share their catch (and the stories of<br />

the ones that got away). Fish offers a great deal of preparation versatility. The wide<br />

variety of spice options allows for the creative chef to personalize their meal. As<br />

a rule of thumb, when using herbs and spices, combine 1/4 teaspoon of one or two<br />

herbs or spices per pound of fish. Let’s share our love of the Great Lakes with one<br />

another!!<br />

Oven Baked Fish Fillets<br />

1 lb. (500 g) fresh or frozen fish fillets<br />

1/2 cup light sour cream<br />

2 tsp. Dijon mustard<br />

1/2 tsp. dried tarragon<br />

1/8 tsp. pepper<br />

1/4 tsp. salt<br />

1/2 tsp. dried dill weed<br />

2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese<br />

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Arrange fillets in a single layer in a large oven<br />

dish. Cover dish loosely with foil. Bake fresh fillets for 5 minutes; frozen fillets<br />

for 10 minutes. In the meantime, stir together remaining ingredients, except<br />

cheese. Uncover fish. Drain off liquid. Spread sour cream mixture over fillets.<br />

Sprinkle with Parmesan. Bake, uncovered for 5 minutes until cheese is golden.<br />

Makes 3-4 servings.<br />

A Meal In A Package<br />

This easy prep can be modified to feed one or one dozen fish-lovers! Each<br />

diner will have their very own package.<br />

1 fish fillet (4 oz.)<br />

1/2 cup thinly slice carrots<br />

1/2 cup thinly sliced zucchini<br />

2 tsp. lemon juice<br />

1/2 tsp. dried parsley flakes<br />

1/2 tsp. lemon-pepper seasoning<br />

1/4 tsp. dill weed<br />

Place fish on a 15” x 12” piece of heavy duty foil. Add vegetable s and sprinkle<br />

with lemon juice, parsley, lemon pepper and dill. Fold foil over and fold in<br />

edges twice, forming a pouch. Place on baking sheet or barbeque. Bake at 450<br />

degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes or until veggies are tender and fish flakes easily<br />

with a fork. Carefully open pouch to allow steam to escape. Makes 1 serving.<br />

Fish Chowder<br />

1/4 cup salt pork or bacon<br />

1/3 cup onion, sliced<br />

2 cups potatoes, diced<br />

1 1/2 tsp. salt<br />

1/8 tsp. pepper<br />

1/8 tsp. thyme (optional)<br />

1 1/2 cups water<br />

2 Tbsp. butter<br />

2 Tbsp. flour<br />

1 quart milk<br />

Remove skin and bones from fish; cut in large pieces. Cook salt pork or bacon<br />

(diced) over low heat until almost crisp; add onion and sauté for about 5<br />

minutes or until soft. Add fish, potatoes, seasonings and water; cover and<br />

cook gently 15 to 20 minutes or until fish and potatoes are tender. Make a<br />

white sauce of butter, flour and milk. (Melt butter over low heat; add flour; stir<br />

until well blended. Remove from heat and stir in milk). Heat, stirring constantly<br />

until smooth. Add to fish mixture and heat. If desired, sprinkle parsley and<br />

float a small cracker on top of each serving. Makes 6 servings.<br />

Growing a Lasting<br />

Community<br />

Having grown up in the city, in an<br />

apartment and having parents who<br />

themselves didn’t garden, growing<br />

my own food was just a glisten in my<br />

eyes. The reality I believed was food<br />

essentially came from the grocery<br />

store. I certainly knew, loosely, the<br />

how but the whole concept of it was<br />

still so foreign.<br />

I really began to grasp a sense of<br />

true agriculture when I started staying<br />

with my grandparents in the summer.<br />

I remember cramming into the back<br />

of their truck, sitting knees to chest<br />

in a fold down seat. We finally settled<br />

to their quaint little trailer where<br />

I was free to indulge in the sheer<br />

complexity of their many gardens<br />

and fruit trees that consumed their<br />

backyard. I can still smell the sweet<br />

fragrance of the peach blossoms and<br />

hear the little chats my grandmother<br />

would have with the berry bushes,<br />

while I taste-tested every couple we’d<br />

pick. Or visiting the many rabbits my<br />

grandfather raised in his shed.<br />

It was pure magic. Surrounded by so<br />

much life. I longed to create such a life<br />

for myself. Yet, as I grew, I sheltered<br />

away from it all. Secretly I wanted to<br />

relive the fairy-tale. To absorb the pure<br />

bliss from so long ago.<br />

By Shauna Ward, Petrolia<br />

Here I am, many years later. As I<br />

sit and write this from my kitchen<br />

table, I watch as my pigs roam in<br />

the woods. I am enchanted with the<br />

simple intracity of the homestead,<br />

evolving a plot of land into our own<br />

oasis. I have began a garden of my<br />

own. A place to grow new life to feed<br />

myself and my family. My chickens<br />

soak up the sun and enjoy the<br />

breeze through their feathers. I love<br />

watching the looks on my kids’ faces,<br />

their mouths stained from the wild<br />

raspberries they must taste test. The<br />

farming community I had no idea<br />

existed has welcomed us and helps<br />

us to thrive. It is exactly where I am<br />

meant to be. We give everything we<br />

have to provide the very best for our<br />

loyal patrons. We are grateful for the<br />

many outlets and markets in our<br />

area, where we can create our own<br />

hub of local goodness, a central place<br />

to gather to provide the very best we<br />

have to offer to all who are looking for<br />

local, top-quality food and products.<br />

Places out of the norm to enjoy local<br />

products, from artisans and farmers<br />

alike. To run into old friends and chit<br />

chat or make new friends, right in<br />

our own back yard. Everything grown<br />

with love, and a little bit of magic.<br />

Know of a market that should be on this list? Let them know about it please. Thanks!<br />

In 1978 a local Mennonite lady named<br />

Anna Mae Wagler started our business by<br />

baking pies in her home and selling them at<br />

the end of her laneway. It began as a means<br />

of survival after her husbands health had<br />

taken a turn for the worse. She gained<br />

popularity quickly and soon the business<br />

grew to have 8 employees. In November of<br />

1991, she moved to our current location on<br />

Perth Line 72 after the township ordered<br />

her out of her house.<br />

It was only intended to be a bakery and<br />

small café with about 7 tables and a<br />

counter. One night a guest requested a hot<br />

meal and the rest is history! That was the beginning i of our hot meals and is how we came<br />

to have the selection of homemade Mennonite cooking we offer today. Soon after she<br />

began serving hot meals, she developed a 5 week rotating meat schedule. This rotation is<br />

still used & can be found on our website and guests love that we have this schedule so they<br />

can be sure to come on their favourite day! She also began serving our famous Broasted<br />

Chicken and selling crafts from local artisans.<br />

Anna Mae sold the business to the Herrfort's in 2001 and we have been operating with<br />

a commitment to the same business practices & principles that Anna Mae's was founded on.<br />

In 2014 we were featured on the Food Network's hit show, You Gotta Eat Here!<br />

We hope that you will join us!<br />

Frances’ Helpful Hints<br />

by Frances Botham<br />

1) If you’ve ever bought an old trunk and can’t figure<br />

out how to get rid of the musty odour even after trying<br />

the baking soda, vinegar and rice remedy, you may<br />

want to try this one. Go to a pet supply store and buy<br />

a box of charcoal chips. Put chips in a plastic<br />

margarine tub and set that in the trunk. Close the lid and leave it there<br />

for a couple of days. You may have to repeat the procedure and leave<br />

a few days longer. It definitely helps get rid of the unpleasant smell.<br />

2) Did you know that when saw blades become gummed up with resin<br />

you can clean them with oven cleaner? Use the same process as you<br />

do when cleaning oven racks or the barbecue grill. However, be sure to<br />

dry thoroughly after cleaning.<br />

3) Candles that you use a few times sometimes become scratched and<br />

dented, tempting you to throw them in the garbage. Don’t do it. You<br />

can rejuvenate them by holding under running hot water, drying with<br />

a towel and buffing with a nylon stocking folded into a handy pad.<br />

4) Did you know that if you zap garlic in the microwave for 15<br />

seconds the skin slips right off? Also, zapping a lemon or lime in the<br />

microwave for 15 seconds doubles the amount of juice? It sounds<br />

bizarre, but it’s true.<br />

5) Do you have floor boards that drive you crazy with their squeaks?<br />

Dust them with talcum powder. Leave for about 20 minutes and then<br />

vacuum. Voila! No more squeaking.<br />

6) Clean your kitchen countertop with club soda, buff dry with a soft<br />

cloth. You’ll be surprised at the shine.<br />

7) Marble sometimes is difficult to clean. Try cutting a lemon in half,<br />

sprinkling salt on it and using it for a scouring pad - but be gentle.<br />

Then wash thoroughly with soap and water, rinse and dry with a clean<br />

soft cloth. Marble cleaning made simple.<br />

8) Are the kids marking up the walls with crayons? Simply scrub off<br />

with toothpaste.<br />

9) To clean antique combs and brushes, first remove any hair, the<br />

swish around in baking soda & hot water. Rinse thoroughly and set on<br />

terry cloth towel to dry.<br />

Where Did All the Corn Roasts Go?<br />

Corn roasts were a regular community<br />

event in the Ottawa valley. It was custom<br />

for the party host to supply and cook the<br />

corn while the guests brought potluck<br />

dishes to share. A tripod would be set up<br />

and a big cast iron cauldron would hang<br />

from a chain over the fire. A fire would<br />

be lit under the cauldron, the water was<br />

brought to a boil, the corn was dropped in<br />

and scooped out with long handled nets.<br />

There was usually a can of melted butter<br />

hanging over the fire to dip the cobs in.<br />

The guests would help themselves to<br />

corn, side dishes and salads.<br />

My mother-in-law and father-in-law<br />

had so many good memories hosting and<br />

attending corn roasts in the Ottawa valley.<br />

For their 50th Wedding Anniversary, they<br />

decided to host a corn<br />

roast, inviting family,<br />

friends and neighbours<br />

to their celebration. I<br />

had never hosted or<br />

attended a corn roast so<br />

it was a really exciting<br />

experience for me. As<br />

a city girl, it was hard<br />

to imagine cooking on<br />

a cauldron over the fire.<br />

However, my husband<br />

put himself through<br />

university by growing and selling corn<br />

and hosting community corn roasts on<br />

the weekends.<br />

We all got to work planning this big<br />

celebration. My father in law welded the<br />

old cracked cast iron cauldrons together.<br />

The tent was rented, the food and<br />

decorations were ordered. On the day of<br />

the party, the whole community pitched<br />

By Andrea Stuart • www.campfireninja.com<br />

in with peeling potatoes, frying turkeys,<br />

and boiling corn. It was so entertaining<br />

watching the turkeys going in and out<br />

of the deep fryer and watching the corn<br />

being cooked over the fire. The food<br />

turned out delicious, thanks to all the<br />

volunteers who made the day a success.<br />

Everyone had such a great time. I<br />

wondered why corn roasts weren’t being<br />

hosted in my area. I wanted other people<br />

to experience it. I began searching for<br />

old, antique, cast iron cauldrons but they<br />

were broken or too expensive. Then, I<br />

happened to stumble upon the Cowboy<br />

Cauldrons. It was exactly what I wanted<br />

to bring to my customers. Now, my area<br />

will have the chance to experience corn<br />

roasts and campfire grilling on a whole<br />

new level.<br />

The Cowboy<br />

Cauldrons are made<br />

of plated steel and will<br />

not crack like the oldfashioned,<br />

cast iron<br />

versions. They can<br />

be used two ways for<br />

cooking. If the fire is<br />

under the cauldron,<br />

it can be used to<br />

boil water for corn,<br />

potatoes, crab or lobster<br />

boils. If the fire is inside the basin, the<br />

grill can be placed on top for cooking<br />

or grilling anything! You can use them<br />

for campfires or for hosting campfire<br />

cooking dinner parties. If you are<br />

looking for ways to spend more time<br />

outdoors, enjoy cooking, entertaining,<br />

socializing and relaxing at home; you<br />

will love this product.<br />

What Is Your Real<br />

Look for the answer in our Fall/Christmas issue<br />

From our Spring <strong>2022</strong> issue...<br />

The Hint was:<br />

Better yet, What Is It?<br />

I’ll admit that we don’t really have much of fahinta this<br />

time, or clue for that matter. This contraption rises<br />

about 80’ above a residence on the east end of a town.<br />

If we make contact with aliens, I know who I’m going to<br />

consult.<br />

The Answer is:<br />

We have this photo saved as “Contraption East of<br />

Kintore”, so that is where it is. We’d love someone to<br />

call and tell us what exactly it is.<br />
