How about a pennant for each of the provinces' championship sports teams.

If look over on the left side, you'll notice an ad or notice of some kind for "D. S. Bowlby, MD". I'm directly descended from him via my paternal grandmother.
I noticed your ancestor was also the local coroner.

I would include images from the North Shore of Lake Superior.
I love travelling across and in Canada.

There are things which are unique to Canada. Is great to sit around a campfire in a Canadian national park, and have a "voyaguer" led drama and singalong.

Go canoeing (or rafting) on the Grand River. Simple and easy canoeing can be arranged.

Go to drumheller for dinosaurs and to experience the hikes.
We think the Rockies are pretty impressive, but they may not, but, go to the west coast and get on ferries and travel to Salt Spring Island, or head over to tofino
Jae would drum hell out of that as he is determinate about not going back that far ... tis not in his book!

Hey Mendalla - any chance you're related to Carol Bowlby Sifton - OT & noted contributor to dementia care & research ... one of those 'long shots' I know!

Not sure. We got the Bowlby part of the family tree through Grandad and the info in the hall of fame. I really only know my line well. I don't know much about other branches of the Bowlbys.

What's this Bowlby business? No ads on my w/c page.
If you want to explore common ancestors perhaps start a thread on it!

Back to driving across Canada-I will be travelling East this summer from BC to ON. I last drove 5 years ago.
Remind them that Canada is very vast. Sudbury has the big nickel, Winnipeg "Fort William", Moosejaw has underground tunnels, SK has Kay the curler, AB has the Stampede in July-in Calgary-and chemgal and Hilary, BC, Banff and Radium for hotsprings, Float the channel in Penticton, take a ferry to Vancouver Island-see the BC Provincial Museum I assume they are staying for a month and renting a u-drive motorhome....

Common ancestor? There is a point to mitochondrial functions? Mother lode ... tis out there in myth as an outlander!

Waves on shore ... ensure splash?

We've seen a lot of CanaDream RVs on the road. My husband was excited once to see one with Ontario plates in our BC campground. I told him they were probably from Germany. I was right. Those RVs are really popular among German and European travellers. We've also met people from South Africa in them. You'll need to reserve early to make sure you get one.
