I've been a little quiet here since the start of last weekend with good reason. Last weekend was the Victoria Day long weekend in Canada - the first big camping weekend of our short summer. This last winter was especially long so I think everyone felt the need to celebrate the good weather we were blessed with for a couple days. The campground was more crowded than I have ever seen it before and we were literally run off our feet. This week I have spent cleaning up the aftermath so have had little time or energy to stitch or write. This weekend is shaping up to be a quiet one though, happily for me if not for the bottom line, so I will continue with the cleanup and resting when I can.

Notes from the Lake
Three kilometers down the road from the campground is the delightful little town of Milo, Alberta - at least I find it delightful! I took this picture of a fence on the main street which blocks the view of a vacant lot I think. I thought this was such a clever and inexpensive way to add a little western charm and pay homage to the ranching heritage of the area. All it would take would be a little research, a router and some fence boards! Cool, eh?
