Oh Canada! And Strawberry Jam
How funny to see so many cars around town with Canadian license plates! I even ran in to the ones in the pictures several times. Turns out that the Canadian canoe/kayak team is having some sort of event at the Clarks Bridge Olympic Venue dow the road from us. Of course, my uncle Doug McKown is a world-reknowned Canadian canoe and kayak sensei and the author of several books on the subject.
We finally managed to go strawberry picking today. It rained the whole way there but it stopped just long enough for us to pick strawberries at a place outside Dahlonega. They were tasty. Oops! I guess its a good thing they didn't weigh us before and after picking! We will be making jam tonight.
