This is not about Medicine Hat. Cape Spear. Come By Chance, Joe Batt's Arm, Heart's Content. Hearts' Desire, or Starvation Cove.IT IS ABOUT BRUCE MINES ONTARIO CANADA

The baseball glove was invented in Canada in 1883 but not in Bruce Mines.


The area was named after James Bruce, the Governor General of Canada appointed in 1846.


Canada's largest city is Toronto located on Lake Ontario Not Bruce Mines which is located on the north shore of Lake Huron but both are located in the province of Ontario.

    LUNCH CONSISTED OF :a dish consisting of French fries covered with brown gravy . Poutine is a diner staple which originated in Quebec and can now be found across Canada (Just add the cheese curds). Also, I had the best apple pie I have ever eaten . (Sorry wife) For $15.00 Canadian you can buy a whole pie.


    Saturday mail delivery in Canada was eliminated by Canada Post on February 1, 1969.(Canada is ahead on this but I think we may soon catch up).

    Nice photos...looks like a great vacation. We've traveled Canada quite a bit; Quebec City being a particular favorite. We've been on both coasts, my husband has hunted near the Artic Circle with Inuit and we've been part way across by train. There's a lot to see.

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my buy local post. It's difficult to only buy local but it feels good when you do.

    Stop by again and hopefully become a follower.

    You have some very nice photos from Bruce Mines. I can not figure out which one does not belong, though.

    Joe: Neat shots from your trip.
    BTW: The shot of the water is from the dock on Lake Huron not Bruce Mines.

    Joe Todd said...

    Fishing Guy you are correct. Karen the church in the last picture was taken in Latchford Ont. and the sun was shining. There is an earlier post about Mr. Pottery in Latchford. Thanks to everyone for stopping by Joe Todd. P.S. my wife Linda hasn't said anything to me yet about her pie not being the best.

    Hey Joe -- Glad I found your blog, through your comment on mine, which I'll answer there.

    We definitelly hope to get up North to Canada one of these years.

    One of our d-i-ls grew up in Saskatchewan (sp?) and she and ou son have turned us on to Corner Gas, which we absolutely love. It comes on one of the channels we get on the Dish.

    Again many thanks for the link to your beautiful blog and all the good travel ideas on it
