My walling friends Gavin Rose (from Australia) and Christopher Barclay (from Victoria British Columbia) have stayed on to work with me on a few other projects here in Ontario after having completed the double arched bridge (along with about fifteen other Canadian and American dry stone wallers) at our Thanksgiving Festival of Stone held in Montreal.
Neither of them had been involved in a dry stone wall project that involved moving all the stone in a barge. Gavin admitted that it was quite a novelty. He has moved stone by sky line and motorized wheel barrows and by helicopter but never by barge.
I was pleased to be able to have them experience the fun of taking a stone boat cruise.
