French River 2010

our annual (okay, second year in a row) pilgrimage to the French River -- to a little cabin by the river -- the children immersed themselves immediately in the wildness....computers, television, video-games all forgotten in an instant in favour of fishing poles and river-puddles.

and yes, Savannah is embarking on a dread-journey. after much discussion and research, we are in the process of dreading her hair. she's the coolest kid, ever.

amazing how a fishing pole in the river can ease the tensions of the busy-world. in the time it takes to bait the hook, the worries melt away.

for me, it was sunrises down by the river....pen-on-page meditations and reconnecting with dreams...

and there were walks in the woods....

and, of course....the fish...

lots of fish...

and sky....gorgeous, endless horizons...


it was good.


  1. That looks like an AMAZING time. Rivers do make life infinitely better, don't they?

  2. ~nothing like sneaking away and spending time in the great outdoors...releasing all tensions and simply just being in the moment...your photos are gorgeous as is your family...i wish you well and blessings upon you and yours always~

  3. beautiful days..its so good, deep down, to get away from the bustles of life, like this. love the dreads on your little girl..very cool:)


~~Thank you for taking the time to share in our madness...please, if the mood takes you, leave your thoughts here:~~
