We spent Thanksgiving at my Brothers camp (cottage) in Dunns Valley, ON. The weather was spectacular! (a little cool at night)
It was the "Maiden Voyage of the "EEE". A very good weekend!
|What a cutie!!|
|You can not hide from me & my camera!|
|Trash Can Turkey|
|The turkey...all spiced up & ready to cook|
|The turkey is in the can...cooking!|
|Might as well take advantage of the coals on top & cook other stuff!|
|Waiting, & cooking............|
|Turkey is done!|
The turkey cooked pretty quick. It was not the best though.
It was our first "trash can" turkey, & it was really dry, & had a smoky taste.
I think we had it too hot & it started to burn in spots inside the can & the smoke had nowhere to go.
|The new Lodge Tripod with lunch on the dutch oven|
Love the new tripod! Every outdoor cook needs one!
|Coffee in my PJ's - but it got hot in the sun!|
|My parents camp (cottage) - My favourite place in the world!!!|
The camp is on a remote muskeg lake, over a big hill on a road barely passable with a vehicle,
3 seasons out of 4. If you want to go in the winter, you need a snowmobile.
It is the only cottage on the lake, & just how we like it. (quiet)
Surrounded by towering maples, we tap trees in the spring.
My husband & I will probably be living here, full time & off the grid as soon as the kids are done highschool.
Somewhere behind Mom is where the Yellowstone will live.
|The truck - made it up the cow the cow trail|
The back of the camp & the water tower. Somewhere to the left of the camp is where "Big Ugly" (our 1970's Yellowstone Capri) will have a permanent home.
|Showing off the new doors for the sugar shack - nice smile too!|
|Nice doors Dad!!|
