Heaven in Ontario

Posted on Updated on

Summer has arrived and it feels like paradise here with balmy 30 degree breezes, the scent of lilac and the sweet song of a whippoorwill. Am visiting my dear friend Scott at his comfy cottage mid-way between Toronto and Ottawa.

    Hello Sequoia, Yes, I’m still around. Thanks for sharing highlights of your trip. It inspires me to want to do the same. You are now in my home province of Ontario. I was just back there myself, the first weekend of May to visit my mom who is 84 years young now and to see some of my brothers and sisters. But the weather was terrible, blowing with snow. Ugh! You hit it right. Enjoy the rest of your trip. Gourmee hugs Robert

    SO beautiful. Looks like you’re having a great time. That wonderful juxtaposition of tranquility and life bursting to get out. So good……

    HI Sequoia, Have enjoyed watching your train trip videos, brings back lots of childhood memories of trips made every summer by train Vancouver to Edmonton to be with cousins and summer at the lake. A lake much like Scott’s, it seems. That hammock looked so inviting! Speaking of inviting, did you jump into the lake with Scott? ( Jumping into a cold lake regularly is necessary to maintain your Canadian citizenship, didn’t you know.)
    That was a wonderful Earl’s lunch you treated me to on b’day, looking forward to taking you out on yours (and to chanting with you, same day). Enjoy the rest of your trip and other adventures to come
    Lots of love dearheart,

    Hi Sequoia,
    Thanks for sharing your great train adventure with us! Like others, it brings back memories of train trips with my families between NJ and TX to visit grandparents each year. More recently I took the Coast Starlight from Portland to San Jose and back, and while your train looks like it’s a cut above the old CS, I still enjoyed the trip. Hello also to the two Roberts who responded. Fond memories of times past at Jemez Hot Springs.
    Much love,

    The goddess said “turn up the heat!” Sequoia’s coming to Ontario. We’ll let him know that Ontario can get full blasts of summer before B.C. How else could this man be heralded back to the province of Sequoia-the Canadian – the man who started here as a boy on summer breaks from Brooklyn. “35 degrees” she said, “that should let him know it’s OK to wear shorts here in May”. “You want lush?”. “Then lets have some humidity too”. Iced ginger tea anyone?

    In days afore I was grateful for a traveler’s postcard with its stamp and postmark. It usually arrived after the traveler had returned. Now its being with you on a train in the moment, leaving Vancouver, through the Rockies and at the lake with Scott, but then didn’t I just see you for breakfast this morning? It’s wonderful being with you in Ottawa. Love to you. D
