November light fading. temperature -1 degrees Celsius, dusting of snow lingering.
A few of these shots are within yards of a 17th century Huron village site. It is debated whether it is the site of the martyrdom of St. Jean de Brebeuf, St. Gabriel Lalemant (French Jesuit missionaries) and many Christian Hurons at the hands of the warring Iroquois in 1649. Whenever I stop and look and photograph these spots, my imagination turns back and I keep one eye out for those Iroquois. This creek with the still water was most likely the water supply for that village.
switched my monthly nephrologist consult from 115pm to 800am in Penetang…. to accommodate an information session by the Jesuits in English Canada re the proposed recycling plant to be built near the Martyrs’ Shrine and Ste. Marie Among the Hurons. In the evening I went to the Huronia Chapter meeting of the Ontario Archaeological Society to hear Jamie Hunter talk about a partial collection of glass beads from the Ball site, a Huron Village excavation conducted over twenty five years by Wilfrid Laurier University.
