Athabasca

Those of you who were around in 2006 will remember my family reunion in Alberta, Canada. I took my camcorder all the way, but only used it once. These are some of the previously unseen stills I made from the film.


The daughter of the house, Leah, on the treadmill. She's an opera singer.


My cousins Linda and Joyce.


Cousin Lorna.


After she had pointed out that it was nearly midday and they were still in their nightwear,
Linda tried to crawl past the camera unseen.


Then Leah told her the truth!




This film was made after most of the family had gone back home. There were 117 of them! Sadly, there hasn't been another reunion since, though I suppose I should be glad, as I don't think I could have made it.

117 would have been one hell of a 'wide camera shot' ;0)

I can see the family likeness!

LOL! You were your own town for a while. 117 all in one place. What an accomplishment.

I do remember the trip and I cannot believe that it was that long ago. I was in Vancouver that summer and wished that there was a way we could have hooked up, although Athabasca to Vancouver is quite a loooong way.

How is your cousin Don? Is he still blogging?

Lovely photos. Your family seems to be happy and funny!

I guess the advantage of being the one behind the camera is no one seeing you in you pj's eh? smart!
Looks like you having fun.

Haven't been around in 2006 but I like your stills. Looks like you had a great time together!

Wow, and I thought I had a lot of cousins! One hundred seventeen must have been a great time. Nice pics; cool pool table. (It's not snooker in Canada, is it?)

Hell, your family looks like such a fun bunch, hon!!!
LOVE the pics and the facial expressions!

They do look like a happy and funny bunch, Val! Hopefully, you'll get to relive the experience one of these days!
