My family and I just returned from a great family vacation at the Ferguson Cottage on the Pickerel River close to Port Loring, Ontario with our cousins on Le-Anne’s side; Janyce and Darin Baigent and their children – Sarah, Heather and Andrew. Le-Anne has great childhood memories of her times there with her family. It was great to keep the tradition going on this vacation with the Baigents.
Fun and adventure were had by all from shooting off fireworks on a homemade raft for Canada Day to seeing a bear on a run to the local dump, to an amazing 1-hour treck into the Ontario wilderness to Little John Lake for a fishing trip to an afternoon down the river for some cliff jumping. Here are some pics that tell some of the story …

We bump into a bear at the local dump
The start of a great fishing trip to Little John Lake
Kyle caught a large Bass. He has quite a “fish that got away” story about this one … this Bass broke his line and stole his original lure and leader … then on his next cast, Kyle caught the same Bass again by snagging the hook of the first lure! I have never seen this happen before in my years of fishing!
The catch …
Cliff jumping …
… and diving.
We arrived back home yesterday refreshed and ready for another few months of work and ministry. T
