Summer update

I’m embarrassed to have such a prolonged absence here. I seem to get sidetracked by life in general and work in particular. Not a bad thing!  But it does seem a pity that we have to interrupt living with getting a few hours leep. Such is life.

You’ll be happy to know, however, that the Author! Author! series will resume in September.

Meanwhile, I’m involved in researching/writing several stories throughout Atlantic Canada.

I’ve also taken on the role of Managing Editor (Atlantic Canada) for a travel website titled Chichaku. I’m currently setting up content for Atlantic Canada and expect that we will be launching  this part of the Chichaku site in August.

Trust everyone is having a joyful summer.

The two photos that you see here were taken at Birchdale, one of my favourite places on earth.  Top photo is first cabin close to lodge. Second photo is from my canoe on a stillwater enroute to Second Carrying Lake. If you look closely, you may be able to see the beaver house on the upper mid-left of the shot on the right.

Just completed a 5-day wilderness paddle into “the Barrio” which is close by (above Birchdale), and will be returning for our annual Birchdale women’s get-away September 26-30. Birchdale is located about a 1-hr. drive from Yarmouth, N.S.  We stay in log cabins (no electricity). Heavenly! Great paddling and fellowship. Oh yeah … we take turns cooking and the food is always beyond wonderful. In fact, I’ve heard it said that this trip isn’t about paddling at all. Rather, it’s all about eating. Contact me for information.

    Birchdale sounds lovely! I read your lines and think, ‘My God Sandra is so vital, strong, passionate, joyous. Wonderful to ride the coat tails of your enthusiasm. Thank you.
