Martin, Corinne, Matthew, Samuel & Kyla
On my west from Thunder Bay I stopped at the beautiful Kakebeka Falls. In less then a minute of arriving The Tempelman family approached me curious about my fully loaded bike. Pretty quickly Martin noticed my Voortman Cookie hat and made a comment about the founder Harry Voortman. Which is when I told them that Harry was my great uncle. In which Corinne informed me that then I had relatives living in Thunder Bay.
At the falls
The Tempelman’s had lived a few years in Burlington and attended the same church as my uncle Harry and was familiar and friends with a few of Harry’s and Bill’s children.
Very quickly an invitation was extended to their farm about 6 kilometers off the highway from the falls. I instantly agreed. My time with them was so appreciated I actually secretly didn’t want to leave.
