Old stomping grounds
by Karla ° Thursday, May 29, 2008
My parent’s live footsteps away from a heavily tree-lined portion of the Trans Canada Trail and directly across from a soul-quenching waterfront pathway that winds around the peacefully calm southerly tip of Georgian Bay.

I spent my childhood exploring meandering rivers, rickety old bridges, abandoned train tracks and a haunted British naval base and if there is one thing that I miss about living in Penetang, it’s the historic charisma of this town. Well that and all the juicy small town gossip, like knowing who ate what for lunch yesterday and whether or not they had a pickle on the side.

The self proclaimed World Famous Dock Lunch. In the distance is Saint Ann's Roman Catholic Church, also known as the The Cathedral of the North. The bells on this romanesque style church are rung daily at 8:00 am., noon and 6:00 pm., and if I was religious, this is where I would go to confess my sins, like shopping on Sundays and the time I coveted my neighbour’s manservant.

At least it was your neighbor's manservant you coveted and not his ass.

That commandment always made snicker as a kid.

Beautiful pictures.
