Memories of living in the North
We lived in Red Lake in Northwest Ontario from 1972 to 2001.
The photographs here, taken from www.northernfleeceweaver.blogspot.com bring back so many memories. We made many trips to Duluth. It was a stop on our summer camping holidays as well as a weekend destination in the winter for cross-country skiing.
The moose was a common sight, sometimes too common as we drove highway 105 from Vermillion Bay to or from Red Lake.
And Northern Fleeceweaver's country near International Falls was a regular destination when I coached soccer. The high school soccer teams played in Fort Frances almost every year. Teams would stay across the river in International Falls where the girls' team members would insist on a trip to the Payless Shoe Store to stock up on shoes.
