Wallaceburg and surroundings - many thanks to MapArt
Wallaceburg is located at the banks of the Sydenham River which ends in the St. Clair River that connects Lake Huron with Lake Erie. It has a population of approximately 12 000. We have visited friends in Wallaceburg several times. They gave us a great sightseeing tour and we also explored Walpole Island and the .
Again before we could use all the information a and pictures our computer was stolen. All our backups were on a second hard drive. I never will do that again! We can only use older pictures and information until we come back.
Unfortunately, we do not own a boat - Wallaceburg seems to be a paradise for boating because it allows access to the Great Lakes.
We loved little Wallaceburg. Only the closing of many plants was depressing. But we were not looking for jobs, we were on brief vacations at friends.

Because of our friends we had visited Wallaceburg several times. Once they took us on an extensive tour to "Walpole Island" and the reservation. I took many pictures and downloaded them to my computer. Shortly after that we had a break in and the computer was stolen.
My friend passed away and his wife moved. However, we still want to visit this area again to explore the island and the reservation. This time we can stop and have hopefully some contact to the natives.
how our friends lived
As an European I am always interested to learn something about the aboriginal people. So I am looking forward to return and I will try everything to keep my promise.
I was told that about 3000 Objibwa, Pattawatomie and Odawa are living in this reservation on "Walpole Island".
The original name of the reservation is "Bkejwanong", what means "where the waters divides".
Many of the natives still live from fishing and hunting or they work as tourist guides. I will ask again!
I believe that the marsh is their hunting ground and the destination of tours for bird watchers and naturalists.
If possible, Elizabeth, my wife, will participate on such a tour to take pictures.
She is an excellent reporter and her walking is much better than mine, but now she is very sick.
