It's been a long time since I updated, as my Mum is very good at reminding me... I have an excuse though - I've been on an island in the middle of a lake in the Canadian praries. That's a good enough excuse I think!

My last update was on the way to Winnipeg, I believe. In the three weeks since then (has it really been that long?) I've spent a week at Camp Stephens (where I spent the summer of my gap year in 2003 and have been back every year since... so that's only two years, but it really is in the middle of a lake and I feel that's dedication -, and then a week out at Rob's family's cabin two islands away. Then came the sad day when we had to head back down to Chicago (well sad for Rob, since it meant he was going back to work). The border crossing this time took all of about 30 seconds, which was a miracle, but a much appreciated one! Eventually, after a 14 hour drive, we arrived back in Naperville where Rob's brother Ian and his significant other Alison were waiting for us. This week has been much chilling out with Ian and Alison (well, for me - Rob's been working), staying in the condo downtown and eating out a lot, so everyone is now feeling fat and poor. Oops.

I'll put some photos up at some point, Rob has a fancy new camera so there's a LOT of photos knocking around. Just not on this computer yet.

Anyways, it's off to drink beer and watch films for me. What a good Friday night.

Not to nitpick... but the lake in question (Lake of the Woods) is merely near the Praries, actually in the middle of the Canadian Shield.
