.and we can't forget about Alexis - our newest grandbaby! Here she poses with an Inuksuk (pronounced E-nuk-sook) at the entrance to Beaverland Camp. The Inuksuk is an ancient symbol of the Canadian North and is a sentinel to travellers, guiding them safe passage. Each part of the whole Inuksuk is crucial to its existance. Welcome Alexis and safe passage back to B.C. Posted by Picasa

Better late than never! It was July 1st Canada Day weekend when Albert celebrated his Big 6-0 with a surprize party with lots of family & friends storming the camp for fun, food and lots of laughs and reminiscing. Dear friends Johan Janssens and Luk & Hilde DeSmet from Belgium made the trip to celebrate with us and also take a little tour of southern Ontario where they had worked as exchange students on the Cloet family tobacco farm.
Thanks to our family for taking time to spend the week with us. It really was a great time! Pictured here is the Big Guy himself with his special Birthday/Canada Day hat, our son, Mike from Mackenzie B.C. and Elaina Stidham, long time guest from Ohio, USA. Happy Birthday Al! We luv U!

WOW! A baby moose! This pic was taken by Rick Harrison of Uxbridge, Ontario on Big Marten Lake. The mama was ahead trying to encourage the little one to climb up onto the island. "I'm tryin' Ma, I just need a bit of a breather" Posted by Picasa

It seems like a L-O-N-G time has passed since we saw this out the window. With Spring in the air, it won't be long before the boats will be wet and the anglers seeking their supper. Here Jeff Scheer navigates his boat past the docks and out to the lakes. Not too many sleeps ahead until this will be a common sight once again. Horray for Spring! Posted by Picasa

It was like "old home week" when these guys spent a few days helping to get the wood cut, split and stacked for winter. From left - Albert helped as much as he could, still recovering from shoulder surgery, friends Willy Connolly and Tim Ferrell and our son Jeff Cloet worked hard and even had some great laughs and fun. Thanks a lot for all your help. It is much appreciated.  Posted by Picasa
