Another Open Mic at Long Shots

2020 January 21

Diana and I attended this week's Open Mic at Long Shots Sports Cafe in Deep River. It was excellent, starting with country and stand up comedy, and finishing with solid rock and roll. Lots of fun! Participants included Andy, Colin, Jim, KT, Kyle, and Mike.

Here are some photos:

Open Mic at Long Shots

2020 January 07

Every Tuesday is Blues / Open Mic / Jam Session night at Long Shots Sports Cafe in Deep River. I have been meaning to attend for a while now and I finally managed it last evening. I had a great time -- a very friendly, relaxed, laid back atmosphere. Good music with the spontaneity of musicians performing in an unrehearsed environment -- so yeah, a few glitches but lots of life.

Musician participating included: Joanne Bailey (vocals), Colin Baird (guitar), Denys Elliot (bass), Mike Griese (guitar), Brian Richardson (guitar), Wayne Renwick (vocals), Big Robbie (drums), and Christy Wojtaszek (vocals).

Some Early Winter Photos from Rapides des Joachims

2019 December 20

We had an early winter storm about a week ago that that coated everything in heavy wet snow, which subsequently froze. I finally got the opportunity to drive up to Swisha and take some photos in the sunshine. I didn't catch things at their peak, but it was still pretty scenic.

Fall: Deep River Waterfront and Rapides des Joachims

2019 October 21 and 24

As we mentioned in a previous post, the fall colours this year strike us as being very vivid. Here are some recent photos from along the Deep River waterfront and from Rapides des Joachims (Swisha). The photos from Swisha are from the boat launch and from the Dumoine Road Bridge (ZEC Bridge).

October 21 was bright with a slight overcast whereas the morning of October 24 had some dramatic mist.
