Alright, good ol' bleachers!!, do not go to this bar on a Friday night, me and my boys made the mistake of taking a 20 dollar cab ride on a Friday night only to find out when we get there that it's all ages night. Don't get me wrong, the attention was great but i didn't feel like being brought to jail that night for being a pedofile, i'd much rather go to the drunk tank for drinking too much. Also, unless you're with a few friends that are bigger than you, then it's probly a good idea not to start any kind of trouble in this bar. If you're feeling a little ballsy then be prepared to take on the entire town of Midland.
Dress Code: haha!! dress code in Midland yeah right... a wife beater, bandana and ripped jeans would suffice...

Ah the shop to my liking! Lots of stuff packed in too small a room, quite a shame for I couldn t get a proper look at items...things did fall too...and the owner had her eye on us....I sneaked round taking photographs and at a certain point I saw some things to my liking and after I had put them on the counter, we felt more free to photograph.more

I can't describe how beautiful and magical these nights truly are! My favourite time is spent in the longhouse - the smoky traditional Huron (Wendat) community building where, surrounded by tobacco, herbs, and animal pelts, visitors are mesmerized by drum songs and legends. Sitting low on a warm eathen floor to escape the thick smoke above, elbow...more
Every year, in the beginning of December, I attend First Light at Sainte Marie Among the Hurons just outside Midland, Ontario. Although our modern Canadian Christmas holiday celebrations are not even always celebrated from a religious perspective, it is interesting to learn about the melding of culture, religion and positive intent that formed some...more

Make sure that the girl you are trying to pick up at the bar is single. Due to the fact that the town of Midland is so small, everyone is a familiar face. Therefore if you're at a local Cougar bar such as Sha-na-na then it is almost positive that you'll get picked up being a fresh face. Just make sure that the son of whoever's mother you're trying...more
Sainte-Marie among the Hurons is an internationally significant historic site. Sainte-Marie was the 17th century fortress and headquarters for the French Jesuit mission to the Huron nation and was Ontario's first European community. In 1639 the Jesuits, along with lay workers, began construction of this palisaded community that would include...more

This is one page in a series of many pages about Canada. If you are interested in reading more about this beautiful country, you should take a look at my Canada page
In the last travelogue of this page you can find an overview of all the pages I have already written and some ideas of what I will start writing about soon. I have listed them by province, starting in the east in Nova Scotia and working my way to the west to Vancouver Island. Here are some pictures from my other Canada pages.
In these "off the beathen path tips" I want to tell you a bit more about the Wye March Wildlife Centre. I don't think a lot of people know about this place, but it is a really nice place to visit when you are in the area. It's not something to make a big detour for though, but great when you are heading this direction. Wye Marsh is located in...more

Three hundred and sixty-five years ago, the Jesuit missionaries came to the country of the Huron Natives with a passionate dream that if they could teach a simple people from the beginning, they could build a Christian State where the people could live in peace and harmony. . Huronia was to be such a Christian State in Canada.Ste. Marie was the...more
