DanoT, thank you for sharing those photos; went great with the coffee this morning. Those were really good pics for their time.
It is really amazing how often we repeat the activities from farther up on the family tree, and how often it is not intentional.
40 years ago I was very into canoeing and kayaking, like weeks out at a time. 4 years ago while cleaning up some Estate albums found pics from my Grandparents in 1907,way back on Memory Lane. They met and married in Moose Jaw Saskatchewan. There were pictures of them courting on skis, and canoeing white water; I never knew.
