Come on Down and See Us

  • FIRST connection with QUINTE REGION in 1974; returning at intervals since then
  • Living in beautiful QUINTE COUNTRY since summer '09, presently in Belleville's West hill.
  • Ready to help you with your realty needs, working with outstanding technical expertise of Century 21 and LANTHORN BROKERAGE TEAM.
  • Moving for a new employment opportunity? We have properties in town and about the near countryside to meet your needs and aspirations.
  • Retiring to Quinte county? Waterfront, rural hillside, picturesque small town, or Belleville suburb/downtown-annex locations are all ready to show.

Getting Here

  • High School in West Toronto and Oakville.
  • Schoolteacher certificate from Peterborough Teacher's College.
  • Classroom experience on the James Bay Frontier.
  • B.A. (Geography and Anthropology) from Trent University.
  • Elementary Classrooms in Huntsville and area.
  • Small midnorth organic farm with Farmer's Market vending at Huntsville, Rosseau, Magnetawan and Baysville,
  • Managed mixed forest on 100 acres lot taking off firewood for thinning purposes, encouraging best maple, ash, beech and yellow birch.
  • Growing organic blueberries, raspberries, garlic, salad greens and vegetables, with some maple syrup and small apple orchard.
  • Have spent many days happily searching properties from Brockville to Port Hope, before settling on Hastings-Prince Edward.

Days Gone By

  • Summer up at the lake, with sun and fun and swims and boat trips everywhere... how about the annual hike and picnic on the road to McKellar?
  • The teenage family trip out west to visit the cousins in Edmonton: the legendary BigSky over incredible flat, hot prairie lands and the first sight of the Rockies on the horizon!
  • Early morning Survey class on the Drumlin behind Trent's Champlain and Lady Eaton College (mandatory Gg 201), stumbling through the sumacs for level sightings... why does one have to do these things?
  • Shared reading time with the Grade 3s: applied phonics with Bill Peet or Arnold Lobel (remember OWL AT HOME?) Somnolent afternoons relieved by spirited teacher read alouds from INDIAN IN THE CUPBOARD and such.
  • Learning CHAINSAW BASICS, then cupping out fir and spruce logs Scandinavian scribe style, saddle notching a simple cabin assembled from wood you felled yourself on your own land.

Roaming Quinte

  • A jaunt up #37 to Tweed is incompleye without a visit to the Art Gallery,the Bakery and one at least one of their local eateries...always excellent fare!
  • Looks like salad greens and herbs will be featuring in the Garden again this year. It's hard to look at the tomato seedlings and think of their hulking adult future - but the taste, the taste!
  • Rambles down the County Roads are on again this year. I expect a little wine tasting will frequently form part of the itinerary. The grapes of Quinte!
  • Hard to say if there'll be enough free days together for some family hiking and backpacking. I know Nathaniel wants to get back to Charleston Lake, and I think I hear Frontenac calling!

 

Out and Doing

  • Caught 'Les Mis' at The Empire just the other night: there's a lot of good Offerings in all seasons in Belleville's Downtown.
  • The Garden Club continues to offer seed and plant exchanges, with garden tours and field trips coming up right soon.
  • Earth Day is not too far away. I expect Quinte and Belleville area roadside cleanups will make some goodly loads and leave our waysides looking as appealing as they should.
  • And very close to home, over on Isabel, I expect the community garden effort will once again transform the frontage for the old Public School in the greenest possible way. Kudos to you, Susanne for spearheading the improvement!

 

Living Local

Rosella, Nathaniel and I have all found the West Hill location very convenient for accessing both the Waterfront Trail and Belleville's Downtown. A little wander by the Moira along the shady path provided seems to suit a good many citizens throughout the day and well into the advancing evening. The enticements of the Downtown cafes (ah, the Croissants at l'Auberge de France) and various pubs and restaurants, are not to be resisted. A constant stream of attractions are on offer at the Empire, and plays at the Pinnacle are well attended. Nathaniel frequently gets into STEPHEN LICENCE for both the bicycle accessory and Hobby sections. Those would be the days he's not trading games at Chumleigh's: zombie hunting anyone?

The Occasional Scone

Rosella's Bed and Breakfast, 3 minutes from the Moira Riverside Trail in Westhill, is ready for casual stays or negotiated longer stays. Full hot breakfast (with scone) is offered along with comfortable rooms and lounging areas in a well crafted older 2 story brick home at 33 Catherine St., Belleville. Vacationing couples or families with children (8 or older please) are welcome at this convenient and very walkable location.

Historic downtown's Empire Theatre, Pinnacle Playhouse, Parrott Art Gallery, many cafes, restaurants, boutique shopping, and pubs are all available to you.
