Managed to squeeze in an overnight at the Island this weekend while we had guests staying at our place.
In addition to climbing trees and checking out the beach at Centre Island, we also rediscovered the skate park behind the pirate playground near the Rectory Cafe on Ward's... on our scooters! :D
On Sunday morning, it was time for "church"; today's island service focused on the blessing of the pets, and was held at the Wards Island Association Club house. A number of dogs and even a cat were in attendance with their owners. Apparently, coyotes have moved onto the Island in recent years, and there has been a growing problem with cats being, well, eaten. Over 30 cats missing or killed in the past two years!!
After church, it was back to the skate park for a little more scootering for the boys, while I investigated and photographed a rotting log for my Grade7 Science class! Then we boarded the ferry back to the city to run a few errands before heading home.
After writing for several teacher and multiple birth publications, including ETFO's Voice Magazine, Multiple Moments, and the Bulletwin, Vera turned her written attention to prolific blogging for some years, including BiB, "Learn to Fly with Vera!" and SMARTbansho . Homeschooling 4 was her travel blog in Argentina. She now spends more time on her Instagram (@schalgzeug_usw) than her blog (pictures are worth a thousand words?!)
