I know that for most of my southern friends my yearly Festival du Voyageur posts are loved. This weekend past Darlene and I took in all that Festival had to offer. From the fiddle music, and meals packed with Bannock, spit pea soup and fresh ham.
The wood fires to warms your bones against the cold, and of course historical re-enactments of life in the 1700’s when this part of Canada was settled. Any of you who are also using WordPress may have been having trouble with the recient updates in adding pictures.

Such awesome and amazing works of art! I love snow, ice, and sand art like this. That’s true art, to put your effort into something that will just wash away. That’s doing it for the right reasons.
They really do a wonderful job of creating pieces of art. Alas all things must end, one day or another.
