The golden hues of a harvest moon shining through a windblown pine, stands testament to a fifty year relationship of love and discovery. Their friendship bloomed as they set their future careers in motion at the University of Toronto. Their commitment to each other began in a small Presbyterian Church in Shakespeare in 1956. A young doctor soon started almost fifty years as a general practitioner in Niagara Falls, and a dedicated nurse played an invaluable and active role in the operation of the office. They were blessed with six children, and now delight in their seventeen grandchildren. Friday night spaghetti dinners are very noisy affairs indeed. Early travels such as their honeymoon in Bermuda, family camping trips in Canada and the United States, and annual trips to Myrtle Beach and Florida, were all capped off with a cruise to the Bahamas fifty years after that October union in a small rural church.
Cottage life at Horseshoe Lake has also strengthened their focus on the family as they welcome everyone within its walls, and to the cooling waters nearby. The windblown pine has also enjoyed the best and sometimes the worst that nature could provide over the past fifty years, but has remained strong and dedicated to its position in the circle of life.

A pine seedling can either view the rock that it is perched on as an indestructible force that is working against it, or take a bold step and set down the first root of discovery. As time passes, all will work out as it should when we handle our obstacles with inner strength.
The closeness we experience grows stronger everyday. Winds of change blow all around us, but the joy we share in each other’s presence never falters. Distance may occasionally find us apart, but like the resilience of pine branches touching in the moonlight, our love is inseparable.
Glittering waters with melding hues of gold, violet, and emerald lay witness to the rising lunar orb as the lake’s inhabitants marvel at the spectacle before them.
This one of a kind sculpture combines the strength of a windswept pine contrasted against a vibrant autumn tree line. A number of white birches surrounded by the calm waters below, seem to be embraced by the stronger pine as they hold firm to their granite base. The pink granite originates from the Utterson area in the heart of Muskoka. Its subtle tones allow the dark roots of the pine to contrast as they make their way to the sustaining waters below. All of these elements combine to create an island setting that dreams are made of.
