the last pics of haliburton

 this is the last of the photos from the camping trip.
 the first here is a look inside the wall of a straw bale constructed building. 
the description follows

 the next couple of shots are of the road that we took from the camp ground to haliburton each day.
the rocks would be part of the canadian shield
for more info and some more pics look here

 checked out some yoga and qi gong classes here.  she really is an awesome instructor.  she integrated mindfulness and meditation into her sessions.  she rocks.

the next few pics are from the sculpture forest at the haliburton school of the arts.  it was neat.  you just walk thru the forest and find these in random places
we ate here.  excellent soy latte.  

 and we ate in this awesome pizza place near our campground.  i cant remember the name but it sure was memorable pizza!  we went back twice

and last we went to the wolf center.  theres a cool story about this on the website below
when we went, we heard the story of how the center evolved, then walked into the forest and howled.
usually the pack will howl back but likely they were not in close enough vicinity for us to hear them
the guide assured us that they would hear us
it was interesting and fun!

 lastly, above is my little friend.  i call her strawberry shortcake
that pic was taken at the wolf center when we were supposed to be listening....

 so much has happened since this camping trip.
the next post will begin to fill in the gap

all for now...

  1. very cool! I do like sustainable housing.. Funny though, houses here in the 19th century were built sometimes of rammed earth or wattle and daub. They are very sustainable, cool in summer and warm in winter

  2. ahh... Strawberry Shortcake.. perfect name for this little sweetie...

    so... that pizza is making me hungry!!! craving pizza now!! and looking forward to hearing what you've been up to... moving i guess!!!

    take care xxx Julie

  3. Whoa! You guys were busy!!!! Breathtaking, all the things you did. My favorite sculpture is that horse!!! And Strawberry Shortcake is a cutie! the pizza looks like it could be called Tomato Pie.

  4. Sounds like such an interesting and fun time! Love the ancient rocks and the sculpture garden looks very cool....Good pizza is always memorable! I love that the wolves could hear you ....they must wonder about all those crazy howling women!.....nice to see you back! best, Susan

  10. You are definitely in a beautiful camping place.

  11. Amazing campingtrip! Thank you for you comment, happy you liked the jewellry. PEI it makes me think of Anne of Green gables. Maybe I am thinking about the wrong place.

  12. Guess what?
    Surprise, "big time" is waiting for you, next time you enter my blog!!!!

  13. Hi Laura, popping by through sweet Luiza. I love your photos, these sculptures are amazing!

  14. What a great trip! I love the metal moose.

  15. It looks as though you had a fabulous time. There's so much in the world to explore. I can't imagine people who don't want to be explorers, especially in their own back yard. Might have to pop up to Ontario next time I'm in Minnesota! Can't wait to hear what you've been up to :) ?!

  16. Much love for the new week, Laura xxxx

  18. Interesting about the sustainable house and the Wolf centre, hope the Wolves were listening far away. Your camping place was pretty special too.

  19. Pooch ! Thanks for your visit and comment..

  20. That shoe is fantastic! Although I'm not very fond of pizza, I have to confess looking at that one has made my mouth water... :-) And your little friend is so cute!
