THE PATH DISCOVERED behind GO SARA setup in site #63, Loop C, Hart O’ Hills Campground on the way to Hurricane Ridge. A young man with a dog on a leash asked for permission to walk around my car to take the path, “a shortcut to my campground,” he said. After dinner, I followed the path, cut through a massive blowdown of trees, which led to the campground theater, then on to Loop B. First night was spent at the Twin Harbors Campground where I followed the trail to the beach as the sun went down. In the morning I visited the Grays Harbor Wildlife Refuge but too late for the annual migration of shorebirds, just one dependable Robin. 05.11-12.2019.

MAE M. BLAKE’S MARKER FOUND in the the Sunrise Cemetery, Duluth, but her William’s stone was not located, even though they were buried side by side, but many years apart. William Smith-Warner Blake was layed to rest in 1934. I was told by the helpful Bart Porter that records do not show if a marker was installed or not.
IT WAS A COLD, WINDY DAY, and I had to return to the office to look again at the large map when Bart came up the idea for a name at the head of the row and it worked.
The only mystery now is who is Mae M. Blake? W.S.W Blake was married to Alice Rood.

Note #3. Camping D’Aoust, Site #199B.
Camping D’Aoust is located 40 minutes west of Montreal. This was the big day, to visit Montreal and travel on to Quebec. The plan was to go from downtown Quebec to the Ile D’Orleans, located in the St. Lawrence River, 30 minutes from downtown. This island, with one bridge, is the place first settled by the French and I had my eye on the map of a campground at the northern end, halfway around. It was closed, a paddle locked gate closed with only warning signs to keep out. Driving on into the falling darkness but what should appear but a small sign with the magic word: “Auberge.” There I met daughter Annable, who spoke perfect English, and her mother Anne who spoke none! No matter, the charming room speaks its own language.06.08.2019
