Manitoulin Island Camping - Haweater Weekend

I was asked to post some information for those who would like to know about camp grounds on Manitoulin Island during Haweater Weekend.

Here is some information:

The best played I EVER stayed on Manitoulin Island was here but be warned - they book FAST and quick - Providence Bay Park. phone: 705)377-4650 or toll free 1 877 269-2018. Ici on parle fran├žais. Email: I say this is the best as I had the best time - the folks were very nice and friendly and we always stayed in the same location (on the South tip of the camp grounds near where the road turns left again. It's very rustic and the walk to the bathroom is loooong but well worth it.

Now to the list - and they are all wonderful. DO make note and ask how far a drive when you ask for accomodations - some of these places are a good 45 min away from Little Current.

Art in Bloom - Sudbury Ontario

What a day it was!

This is only part of the display area that we had - located outside in the General Hospital area of Sudbury Ontario. Art in Bloom is a fundraising event for artisans and crafters to help out the Sudbury Mental Health Society - a portion of all profits that the artists make during this one day sale, go directly to SMHS.

We were located at the main entrance of the show - beside a few other very talented and creative artists who worked with jewelry, stained glass, wood and some wonderfully tasty treats. Situated directly in the sun, with no tent, all the stones just shone like diamonds in the sun beams! The wind blew the chimes we had for sale making soft gentle sounds throughout the day.

The promoters of the show were wonderful! Fully staffed to host a tea for the guests who came to the show, we were treated with generosity and kindness. Volunteers for this event spent many hours in the hot sun handing out water and food for the vendors. I was impressed by the quality of the food served during the tea and delighted by meeting more of the Sudbury Red Hat Society women.

As for the products available? There was a very good selection of artisans - from pottery, photography, gemstone, beads, glasswork, woodworking, wonderfully yummi treats to eat and more, there was something for everyone at this event.

I cant wait for next year!
