R E M E M B E R Wear your poppy. Educate your kids. Thank a veteran. Appreciate what we have. Never forget. A special thank you to my Great Papa Baker. Douglas William Baker - a photographer and film developer with the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF). After the cities in Germany were bombed, he would fly over them and take pictures of where the bombs hit, and also photographed daily life while away at war.

B E A C H D A Y S Here is a Walker & Baker BALM BEACH day at its finest. My Nana says that my Great-Great-Nana Walker (in the swim cap) was a woman before her time.

As a member of the Women’s Temperance Union, she went every Wednesday to Willard Hall to get in some swim time - stylish swim cap in tow. Nana needed to add that, “OH MEGAN,...

F R O N T STEPS

F R O N T  STEPS

F R O N T - S T E P S (1989)  These steps have seen teeth fall out, hosted birthday celebrations, been the cause of some falls, encouraged late night chats and have been spilled on more than a bar floor on a Saturday night. They’ve been a seat to the stargazers, the BBQers & their support staff, the marshmallow roasters, the singers, the breakfast eaters and the corn huskers. For almost 4 decades, we’ve been taking pictures on these cottage steps. (1991) (2021) With our second season just beginning, we are so excited to make you your matching...
