Queensborough from the air: isn’t that nifty? Complete with pretty autumn colours. This photo comes thanks to Mark Kay and Jos Pronk, whose home/business is the large white building (formerly Bobbie [Sager] Ramsay’s general store) at top right of the photo. The Manse is at the far left, and you can even catch a glimpse of Raymond’s bright-red truck. The home of our neighbours Chuck and Ruth Steele (it was Chuck who alerted me to Mark Kay’s cool aerial photos) is the cream-coloured one with the green roof a bit to the right of the Manse. You can also (unfortunately) see the remains of the lovely old brick home that burned to the ground last spring in about the centre of the photo. (That mess needs to be cleaned up, and I don’t care who hears me say that.) (Photo from the Facebook page of Pronk Canada Inc.)
I love the way our friends in Queensborough keep us posted about what’s new even when we’re not there. This evening I was delighted to open my email and find a note from our friend and neighbour Chuck Steele letting me know that another friend and neighbour, Mark Kay Pronk, had posted some aerial photos of our little village on the Facebook page of Pronk Canada Inc.
, the business that she and her husband, Jos Pronk, run. (Jos is the guy who can do anything, absolutely anything, with metal – and who proved it by building a car, if you please, and an amazing one at that. You can read about it, and see photos, here
Mary Kay and Jos must have been up in a small plane over Queensborough sometime this fall, which would be a cool thing to do. The photos (you can see more here) are terrific and show off our little neck of the woods to great advantage.
It is such a nice neck of the woods! And seeing it from a different perspective only reminds us of that.
