Canadian Creek May 2017

I've been pottering around Canadian Creek, just near Poverty Point trying to match up the mining settlements on the nineteenth century survey maps with what is here now. This spot was full of people and their mining gear and huts 150 years ago.

The land has been mined and lived on and covered with rubbish and cleaned up and now replanted with local trees and shrubs. They are growing well, as you can see when I stand Mr Pip against the last one on the right of this photo.

Hi Elizabeth, what beautiful trees and Mr. Pip looks good! Gilly is recovering from a back injury...she has started barking again and that's how I know she feels better. Although it is not my favorite sound, it is much preferable to seeing her feeling so miserable...and so I'm grateful.
