bugscreen boogaloo

kate maki and nathan lawr, finally arriving to join us in clydesville after being misled by google maps... (which happens to be a 'suburb' of lanark, not smiths' falls, ontario.)
why clydesville?
david was invited to play keyboards with kate at a homestyle music festival in clydesville last weekend, and we were all offered accomodation on the festival site...believe it or not, this lean-to shelter is entirely made of scavenged materials! the fatigued aluminum screen, though, had been lovingly patched by previous guests with candle-wax and fishing line. the four large mattresses on the floor served our family and the maki-lawrs well, however, and despite the mosquito infested night, we woke to a beautiful view. the structure is surrounded by trees, and a mere stumble to the river.

their set started at midnight, and had a few technical problems, but a great experience none-the-less. next year, however, i'll bring the bug-net.

esther's first slumber party.

edgar was a very happy camper.

bug bite girl.
