Modern Farfarers

Whats this? A photo from Oct 2006. These look like very similar rocks to the photo in the previous post. Hmm. Maybe they are still waiting to be made into something.

Ah yes. Here are some of the modern Farfarers who came ten years ago from far and wide to Port Hope to build the original dry stone boat-roofed house. Out of that seemingly useless pile of rocks, this unique monument honouring one of  Canada's most prominent authors was constructed.

Watch many of these same Farfarers this coming Canadian Thanksgiving weekend in Port Hope for the celebratory 'relocating' of this structure stone by stone onto public parkland.
