Looks great Rapunzel!

Monster post alert! I just got back from 2 weeks of vacation - a day early to avoid all the crazy traffic tomorrow! And I have a ton of photos to share!!

A big thank you to riff, fabgeek and especially laxlife, for being so generous in sharing their photo tips & knowledge!

We were vacationing with family friends - we kids all grew up together, and they have a cottage northwest of Ottawa, near Algonquin park. It's well populated but still pretty wild.

The cottage life!

docksandals.jpg

There's no end of fun things to do! Swimming, hiking, mountain biking, boating, kayaking, and of course - tubing!

tubing1.jpg

That's me - trying to not swallow the whole lake!

By this time of the year, the water does start to get colder, and the evenings can be pretty chilly. I still couldn't resist going for a paddle the evening we got there! So pretty!

ayellowkayak.jpg

One of my favourite times of day is early in the morning. The power boaters are still sleeping off the drinking, the water is very still, and there's a beautiful mist everywhere!

dawn1v.jpg

The evenings are always fun too - campfires & smores!!!

marshmallow2.jpg

smores1.jpg

We had gorgeous weather the whole way through, except for today when it got rainy (another good reason to leave early)

holdingthesun.jpg

We weren't the only ones enjoying the weather!

Mama & family!

chicksandmom.jpg

The dragonflies are amazingly beautiful - and they eat mosquitos - yay! My photo doesn't do him justice!

dragonflyy.jpg

We spent a ton of time in the water of course!

You can see and hear the loons all the time, but it sounds especially nice at night, when the lake is quiet!

loon1.jpg

Yes, there is denim here! I pretty much wore my IH everyday, except while swimming!

Jumping seems to be all the rage in the waywt posts! But I like to do my own thing - I only jump if there's a thrill to be had: skydiving, bungee jumping…. Or high cliffs and deep water!!

jump1v2.jpg

jump2n.jpg

We actually went further to higher spots, but the photos of me didn't come out to well!

It's so hard to capture the beauty of this place, but here is my go at it! I hope you all enjoyed the pics!

Can't rep you anymore sweatpea but that vacation looks awesome! I've been yearning to do a similar trip way up in Wisconsin. Hopefully it'll workout in a few weeks.

Took a long-weekend road trip to Mount Rushmore and other odd assorted places. Drove through some Robbie country, as well.

Started at the Corn Palace in Mitchell, South Dakota. Honestly, just a civic building covered in corn art. Folksy.

Next on to Wall, SD and the 70,000 ft drug store filled with uber-kitsch.

Here lies three bones of foreign cars,

they served their purpose while Detroit slept.

Now Detroit is awake and America's Great.

Made one more folk art stop but camera battery died. Will post later.

Hope you enjoyed this midwest tour.

Found one from our last stop in Lucas, Kansas, where this populist Civil War veteran- Dinsmore -hand built his rock cabin along with some insane concrete sculptures. He is mummified and on display here, also! I will find some more photos from my friend's camera. Couldn't resist this naughty one.

cross post by request, from ConexROY

We've been really lucky the last couple of years and my brother and I have been able to join my parents in visiting my Grandmother and my Aunt/uncle/cousins in Spokane Washington. My grandma moved out there a few years ago from Bartlesville Oklahoma (as Robbie posted earlier, the home of the Frank Lloyd Wright's Price Tower...one of the weirdest buildings I've ever been in).

Last year I was able to convince everyone to go to White's boots to check it out. I ended up getting fitted for a pair of semi dress and this time visited White's again while wearing my pair. This time we went for the tour of the factory.

I cannot recommend this enough. If you are in the area you really should make an appointment and check it out. Really cool. Unfortunately I am an idiot and didn't bring a real camera. I also kinda felt weird taking pictures, so I just used my phone.

this is where I decided I couldn't live with my self if I didn't take any pictures. This is the repair guy. Hes in charge of rebuilds, resoles, etc... In this picture he's ripping up all the stitching like a mad man. very fast.

09f33c87.jpg

these are racks of shoes ready to be repaired.

4b35b111.jpg

this is the room where they stitch the soles on. notice the rapid E machines. Our guide (Rob) told us they snatch these things up any time they can. I saw 4 in the room, along with 1 modern replacement (they dont make rapid E machines anymore).

bf15a446.jpg

this is one of the finishing rooms - you can see a nice semi-dress there in the window. lots of leather dust.

8810c880.jpg

this is in the White's boots room. All the stitching and hand lasting for White's happens in one room. The hathorn guys are also in the room but off in the corner. They're basically being trained to be White's workers eventually. this is a photo of one of the White's workers hand lasting a boot. apparently all the workers in here make their own thread. pretty cool.

these guys are pounding on heels

this is where the loose laces and stuff get burned off before inspection.

Ditto! Very nice Markus!

Meant to post this and forgot…. I was out of town on business for the better part of last week, and never got a chance to update…

We spent a day at the Busker Fest - street acts, jugglers, crowds, and, of course - food!

I visited a soviet submarine from 1976. It looks much more chaotic inside than the WWII submarine I visited last year. You're everytime relieved once you get out of those steel coffins.
