I have never seen it nor photograhed it so it must be taking its sweet time coming up here!
Lanaud on Apr 15, 2006 01:55 (12 years ago)
That photos was taken in Oct 2005 so she should be arriving anyday now! :-P

Very nice indeed!!!
send her back to the upper lakes so we can photograph her.
Lanaud on Oct 21, 2005 23:46 (13 years ago)
Thanks. Took a look at yours. It's just as nice. I'm a little deceived of the results. Sun that is on her is beginning to set. Not perfect, but at least I got my first photos of this one

Very nice, she’s one of my favoured lakers, got her entering the Canal at Pt. Colborne on October 17, 2005 (but not as nice).
