Apples and Art studio tour

 Cornwall Quilters Guild, Salem United Church, Summerstown

Cornerstone Farm, yarn shop and teaching centre, near Green Valley. The owner said he used to raise sheep and make his own yarn but it become impossible to do this, since local wool mills have shut down and it would take too long to make enough yarn on a spinning wheel.

Mural on CSL St-Laurent

" The Sea Keeper/Gardien des eaux" is this mural painted on the forward façade of the accommodations block on the bulk carrier CSL St-Laurent by four Montreal artists, Bryan Beyung, and FONKi, Ankh One, and Benny Wilding of the ASHOP art collective. It's a Canada goose in flight. Millions of the geese nest along the St. Lawrence and Great Lakes that this boat sails on. The banner on the side is for the Canada Games torch relay, which CSL sponsors. 

Kewpie Mayonnaise

Big pile of them in local store. Kewpie Mayonnaise - my Japanese girlfriend would put mayo on rice in a cone shaped nori (seaweed) wrap. I had not seen mayo in a squeeze bottle in 2000 until I went to Japan.
