Another Wintery Day at the Camp

Here is a beautiful snapshot of the view over the water. Snowmobilers have been trying out the back trails and are lovin' it! OFSA trails still remain closed, but recent snowfalls and colder weather are good signs that it won't be long before the groomers ae out packing the trails.

Winter's Arrived

WOW! We awoke this morning to snow, snow, and more snow! Yippee! This snowfall will be a great beginning to packing the snowmobile trail at our doorstep. It sure looks like a white Christmas.
We'll keep you posted!

Thanksgiving ??

Yes, it's hard to believe but the 2007 Thanksgiving weekend started out with a fabulous Friday. Temperatures were in the high 20's and the kids insisted on getting the paddle boat back into the water. Well, no surprize that they were also able to swim and go tubing! Who would of thought? It's a good thing that everyone took advantage of the great day as the rest of the weekend was rather cool and rainy. This did not slow things down too much, and the pot luck dinner on Saturday was a great success. Thanks to everyone who contributed all the yummy dishes to the table. Well, we are putting the main camp to bed this week and moose hunters are appreciating the cooler fall like weather.

Once again we were fortunate to have visitors from Belgium at Beaverland. Our friends Peter, Marleen and daughter Maryke stayed for almost a week on the first leg of their trip to Canada.

Here is part of what they wrote upon leaving for Ottawa...."We had a most wonderful time at Beaverland Camp, much more than we ever expected. We got to taste a bit of life up North, especially with you showing us around the place. Of course too short, but that's life. We hope that you come over to visit are always welcome in our house and can stay as long as you wish!"

What a great time we all had, especially during a quieter time at the camp. The Marten River Provincial Park's Logging Museum was a great opportunity for our guests to see first hand the history and stories of logging in the area, especially since Beaverland had it's beginnings as a logging camp many years ago. Thanks to Diane at the Park for a personal tour of the museum and a great explanation of all the artifacts.

Early morning on the MArten

Whoa there's already feeling like Fall here! Sorry for being so tardy in keeping the Beaverland site current, but it's good to have it up again. Some new things happening in camp. The row of old log cabins on the waterfront have been removed to open up green space and a beautiful view of the water. Many of the logs and lumber were saved for future use. Not a tire was damaged with nails either!

Pictured here are the crew who worked on the last cabin. Grandson Travis, who spent the summer at the camp, had a rare opportunity to work along side both of his Grandfathers on this day. Grampa Albert is in the driver's seat, Grampa Ray is kneeling beside Travis who is leaning on the tire. Pictured behind is Philip Gagne, our summer helper. It was a bittersweet moment to see the last of the historical waterfront cabins gone.
