Pioneer days in the county

Tuesday, August 7, 2007

Just finished a long weekend here (yesterday was a holiday and we took Friday off) at my parents’ cottage in Prince Edward County. We always have a list of jobs to do when we go down there for the weekend; this weekend it included:

  • Installing the Wii and teaching them how to use it
  • Getting the new GPS out of the package and into their car
  • Lowering the docks to match the dropping water levels
  • Finishing a new flagpole, which looked more like a scene from Pioneer Village:

The end result, however, was pretty satisfactory, with the Union Jack (British flag), the Maple Leaf (Canadian flag) and the White Ensign (Canadian Navy flag) flying at the end of it all:
