Let’s get busy

Published By on June 26th, 2004 in Edge Insider

We’re entering our busiest time of the year at the edge of Algonquin Park this week. We’ve been doing quite a few facility enhancements with new gardens at the kilnhouse, fire circle and dining cabin. Next weekend we’re hosting a large group that is joining us from Union Station in Toronto.

We’re riding in style on the Northlander train right to South River, where we’ll be shuttled out to the lodge for a few days of adventure, creating, and dreaming.

We also host a number of overnight guests who are heading out on a canoe trip into Algonquin Park over the long weekend. Yes, there are a few spaces left, if you would like to join us.

Today, Tim is in North Bay helping out with the Nipissing Stage Company performance at Nipissing University. On our way to pick him up we’re also picking up our refurbished canoes – Martha and Todd’s that is. One pink and one blue that have had their gunnels and seats replaced. We’re also picking up our refurbished canvas for our dining tent. Looking forward to getting that set up!

Also, some friends in North Bay at the Iron Works Cafe have sadly closed their doors. Iron Works was perhaps the best stop in North Bay for a delectible home-made lunch featuring great cuiches, salads, wraps and more. Luckily, Martha stopped by for lunch yesterday and loe and behold Karen (owner) offered to sell us a number of iron-legged chairs, tables and more. We are very happy to be sharing some Iron Works energy at the Edge. We have yet to decide where all the new things will go, but we are looking forward to posting pictures of the new decor soon.

Speaking of pictures, our camera hunt continues after our coolpix bit the dust. My Ebay bidding will soon result in a new camera and a bevy of new images I’m sure.

Time to empty the van of the new Iron Works items so that we can pick up our canoes. Back to you soon.

Happy Paddlin!
