Actually, they were forcibly removed by the British,mainly from what are now the Maritime Provinces, after France lost what they called in Europe the Seven Years War, called here the French and Indian War...the most moving account of that momentous event is Longfellow's 'Evangeline'...

Well, yes, of course, should have there was some kind of "French Connection" there. Doh, :o

That's Finn Slough which runs in the Fraser - might not want to eat the fish. However, the mighty Fraser is a great river; it played a big part in Canada's history. It brought the 'coureurs de bois', fur traders and adventurers to B.C. and gold seakers heading to the Yukon. It's also good for shooting rapids - pretty exciting when you get to the part called Hell's Gate. For better shooting rapids it's the Thompson River - especially when you get to Devil's Cauldron. It's lots of fun. Snow Cajuns or what we call the Snow Geese (retirees going south for the winter when it's too cold in our neck of the woods), certainly do have much in common with the Cajuns in Louisiana. When things got too hot with the British, some French Canadians headed to Louisiana - which was once owned by France.

That does look jus' like Boudreaux's house...but then French Candians, or what the folks down here call Snow Cajuns, share a lot of characteristics and affinities with Cajensis Louisianae....

yeah, It looks more like something in the bayou of Mississippi or Louisiana; not in connie's neck of the woods. There is other shots available for those that might be curious.

On a rainy day, you can fish out of the kitchen window...
