Ah, a step back into summer! Judy’s painting shows the St. Charles Mission at Dunvegan Provincial Park. You are looking up from the river below, catching a hint of the northern lights in the evening sky as dusk creeps into the giant spruces. What a welcome sight this small settlement would have been to a weary canoeist or rafting trader. Things would certainly seem to be looking up.
We spent two lovely days at Fort Dunvegan Historical Site on the Peace River, Alberta. We roasted bannock, toured historic buildings, listened to the Grande Prairie and District Pipes and Drums, played old fashioned carnival games and had rides on horse drawn carts. Happy (belated) Canada Day!
