Every year at this time, we the Durham Handspinng Guild gather to do free spinning
demonstrations at different venues around our region.
This weekend we were invited to
Darlington Provincial Park on Lake Ontario 30 minutes east of Toronto, Canada.
We have been here many times before, and have enjoyed it greatly.
Unfortunately most of our merry band have other engagements this week end so only we two were available.
It was HOT! Slightly cooler in the shade of the cabin where we were set up.
Since we had been last time, reptiles had moved in! (in an aquarium) There was a milk snake, a rather grouchy snapping turtle, and several painted turtles.
At this point in our blogging there will be an eductional pause… fresh water turtles are not actually turtles they are Tarapins! Turtles are only found in salt water and on land are called Tortoises. Just thought this may be useful to you some day :0)
Back to the park; there was a wagon and a team of horses that took families on a short tour around the park and craft activities for the children. Most families brought a picnic and enjoyed themselves at the beach or under the trees playing games.
A really delightful time was had by all!
Watch for Gwen’s post, I’m sure there will be one. She takes great pictures!
