Long Ago They Walked Here

History fascinates me. I hope it's contagious to my children.
We entered the world of the people who lived here long ago and I had to catch my breath for a moment. The foundations of five longhouses were unearthed in this place and reconstructed so we could learn more about the clans that inhabited the very ground we toured.  
The little bit that has been revealed to us through archeological discoveries gives us a hint of their way of life but what we know for sure is that they were people God created, just like us. They lived, built, hunted, rocked babies, and shared stories here. With that knowledge in mind, the history of our Canadian Natives becomes a mystery to be unraveled, learned from and enjoyed.

i sat and looked at the pictures for a while...a different province than the one my heart longs for, but it's canadian soil and just being able to see it does wonders for my soul.
