Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, Canada
and I considered moving to Canada for our retirement. In
investigating this course of action we went to Ontario and spent time
in the Sturgeon Falls area checking things out. We had a
delightful time. Unfortunately, when we talked to an attorney in
Toronto we found out that retirement immigration is no longer available
in Canada, so we could not move there. Here are some pictures
from the trip and the lovely people we met along the way.
stayed in a motel at Sturgeon Falls. Even though it was September
I found it humid. This is a picture from the hotel of the area,
pretty flat. We had a cool little rental car that you can see also.
were welcomed with open arms by the local Lions Club. We got
together a couple of times with them. They are all fluent in
French. Mine was embarassingly rusty.
around the small town Lance spotted this church which was a camera's
trying to organize this trip via the internet, I connected with a lady
who owns a metaphysical store near to where we were visiting. She
was having a pagan fall gathering and asked me to do an intro
talk on kabbalah. Everyone was very nice. There were
lots of mini workshops going on at the event.
We found it interesting, that when driving
throughout the area, we would see small piles of stones...they looked
like some sort of purposeful marker. We went into a store and
found they were called "Inukshuk." Inukshuks stand as
beacons to guide Canada's travelers in the far north. "Inukshuk"
means "in the image of man" and has become symbolic of the brotherhood
of peoples everywhere. An Inukshuk can be any combination
of two or more stones put together to show a direction. But most
are built to look like a man.
