The Deep River Yacht and Tennis Club held its end-of-season party on Friday. The buffet dinner was by Maven Catering (with live dinner music by Marc Audet and trophy presentations by Evan Graham) and was followed by an Open Mic session arranged by Mike Griese.
Performers at the Open Mic included: bass - Denys Elliot; drums - Greg Hersak; guitar - Mike Gayda, Mike Griese, and Kurt Penney; keyboard - Diana McElroy; saxophone - Rob Carson; vocals - Joanne Bailey, Jodie Primeau, Cicely Proctor, and Christy Wojtaszek. (Not all performers are pictured - we left early because Diana was chilled. And some performers switched roles).
It was a successful and fun event even though the venue was somewhat chilly and the lighting was terrible for photography. But I got some pics.
We have added a new bushlog page to our web site:
Trip diary and photos from a three night trip to Whitson Lake in Eastern Algonquin Park
Diana and Bob recently spent three nights camping on Whitson Lake. One afternoon was spent exploring the Five Mile Rapids Portage. Here are some photos from that trip. A full Bushlog
will follow soon is now avaialable: Three Nights on Whitson Lake.
I bought a new lens and I wanted to check it out. So I went for a short photo drive in the Petawawa Research Forest. It was a squally day, which made for some interesting lighting conditions.
This year's crop of cotton grass is pretty impressive.
