Kleinburg...have the years been good to you?

Spent the day at the McMichael Gallery in Kleinburg, a treat for the eyes and the soul. Topped my gallery visit off with a ramble around the trails in the spring sunshine....squirrels and spring flowers along the Humber... Went time-travelling to the McMichaels' Tapawingo of 1950's ....the Group of Seven's Ontario in the 30's....On the way out, we drove through the village (now gentified and overdeveloped) - caught a glimpse of some very appealing old houses - and the humble storefront painted by A.J. Casson way before the town became a destination.
