Wallers and Bridgers

On our way back from the 'Festival of Stone' held in Montreal, we stopped in at an earlier festival site at Landon Bay Park to see the bridge our international crew of wallers (bridgers?) built there during what has now become a regular annual walling celebration in Canada. Christopher and Norman are seen here pausing on Kay's bridge, a structure built in 2010 just off the 1000 Islands Parkway . I thought, as I took the picture, of what Isaac Newton is quoted as saying. "We build too many walls and not enough bridges."
I'm thankful for all the people who take part in our Canadian festivals, from all over North America and further abroad, who devote their time and skill not just to building walls, but to building bridges as well.
