So, I wondered if they liked something
different from the landscape they were used to seeing or you
wondered even if this reminded them of back home.
Yeah. These low hills. It's not really
an Ontario landscape either - maybe a Northern Ontario landscape.
Yeah. We wondered about Ontario. But
you know what? After talking awhile he said, "It's Lake
Oh, that could be.
I said, "Oh, who told you that?"
and he said, "Mama.'"
But I don't think this is Lake Superior.
Do you think it is with those rapids there?
Well it could be a river flowing into
I guess it could.
Yeah. I think it could that because
it does have those lower mountains there.
Does lake Superior have these? I've
driven over the North of it but I've forgotten. I didn't see
any hills that are pretty high. That could be it.
Well I haven't been there in over thirty
years either. Yeah, I think they have low sort of Laurentians.
They're fairly high rocky hills.
Yeah. So maybe that's why she treasured
it then. Maybe they had been to Lake Superior a few of times.
So that makes me wonder if it could have been sent to them from
somebody down there. Then maybe it was an entirely different
painting that my mom saw being painted at the sports day.
