Lughnasa on the Island

Hello friends,

I was very lucky to spend the harvest festival of Lughnasa at our cabin on Manitoulin Island.

The part of the island we have a home on is called Kagawong and it is a very historic and picturesque little village.


St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church.



The Candy Cabin.


This little shop is filled with treasures from Africa!


The history museum on the water.


A giant chessboard!


I am so curious about the history of this house on the main street.  It is very old and I don't know if anyone lives in it.


If you peek in the windows you can see it has all the furniture still inside, along with other bits and bobs like vases and paintings.  I wonder who owned it, it is so big it must have been someone prominent.



I hope everyone had a beautiful Lughnasa or Lammas and is having a gorgeous August.  Halloween is only 87 days away.

Love,
Jenn

Ah, our Little Princess would probably loose her mind in the giant chess board. How awesome!

Glad you had a great First Harvest. Around here we were a bit sickly (and by "we" I mean "me") but all getting better now.

Love the pics!

It looks like a wonderful island, oooo and a mystery house that is intriguing.

I'd love to play giant chess. :-)

I hope you have a wonderful harvest time! We have a giant full moon shining down on us right now. It's almost like it's speaking to me.
