Across Canada in pictures (+ a new puppy!)

Meet Stout! He is a Presa Canario (Canary Mastiff), a rare giant-breed from the Canary Island, a cousin of the Cane Corso (Italian Mastiff). Yes, he's gonna be big!

Drawing at Buffalo Pound Provincial Park in Saskatchewan. Believe it or not, we found some great mountain biking single track there! And no, it wasn't flat. At all.

The knitting club hits the road!

Exploring the water in Dryden, Ontario.

A girl and her pup!

Dinner stop in Ignace, Ontario.

Oh no! The scary waves are out to get me!

Superior Lake shower

These girls are crazy! It's way too cold...

Can you see the bus across the bay?

We made it to Ottawa and are spending a few days visiting friends!

Farmers' market and the Great Lakes

One of the things I love about living on the road is discovering the local farmers' market. We love our greens and sprouts and supporting local organic farmers is very important to us, so wherever we go, we try to shop at health food stores that carry local produce or at farmers' market when the timing is right. This is a great site to find the farmers' market in every town we visit.

The other night, we stopped to make dinner at one of our usual spot near Pancake Bay Provincial Park (Ontario) and the girls swam in cold Lake Superior while we sat in the soft sand. We looked at them jump in the waves and scream with glee and smiled in silence.

Things felt more right than they had in a long time.
