Every summer, usually a couple days before the final day of school, Ryan splits the Bay Area for the East Coast to visit family.
The main destination is Indian Lake, a part of a chain of lakes called ... the Indian Lakes in Ontario, Canada.
The goals here: achieve an advanced state of chillness to recuperate from the stressful life of a special ed teacher, do some fishing and hang with the kiddos.
Along the way, his naturalist skills continue to develop.
Last summer on a wander, he noticed distinct chew marks on a tree he believed to be from a porcupine. A camera was set up in the area and the result was a new species for the CTC family!
like its summertime neighbour, taking it slow
JK and I look forward to future Canadian dispatches from the horse's mouth this coming summer.
