Flowers from Tuwanek

One of the first things that Jamie and I found about Tuwanek was how warm it was, very balmy. I don’t know if the past week was normal for this area, but we enjoyed it for sure. I was happy to note several different flowers still blooming, and for the time of year I was impressed that they were not more droopy!






And then there was the Mayor of Tuwanek – if you went to the Tuwanek website that I posted the url for in my previous post you would have read about the Mayor.

Meet Mayor Lexi!

Kass 241

You can read more about Lexi on her page located at 

Let me tell you though she sure was a charmer – she would arrive at our cottage every morning around 9:00 am for her morning cookies, then off she would go to continue on her rounds. Then she would magically appear in the late afternoon, ready for more cookies, and would stay and keep us company, until more cookies, and when Jamie would walk her home about 8:30 pm. She had one of the most happy tails I have ever seen on a dog – it seemed to be forever on the move.

We felt comforted when she was about, as we were sure she would alert us if any bears wandered into our area…. as they did on the 3rd night we were there, after Lexi had gone home. But that is a tale to tell you another day…lets just say that I am thankful it was a friendly bear!
