Meet Eleanor Himel from Port Washington, New York


Her Statement:

The moods and colors of the ocean beaches and bays of Long Island have been a constant source of inspiration. Memories of watching waves cascading onto the shore and then receding are entwined with the scent of salt water and the carefree joy of a dash into the surf. The emotional essence of each locale is reflected in contrasting layers of bright paint.

Time spent in Japan gave me an appreciation for the simplified design that is indigenous to that country. It has affected the way I look at art, architecture and fashion as well.

The parklands of Ontario with their peaceful flat landscapes and giant uninhabited lakes have been a summer destination for years and have also been favorite subjects of my paintings. It is a pleasure to sketch and be enveloped in the stillness of the woods, rocks and shimmering water. The works of Arthur Dove, Milton Avery and the Canadians, Lawren Harris and Jack Bush have helped me to develop my own interpretation of these beloved areas.

From March 16th entry in Bert's Travel Blog: (

250 km North/East of Toronto is the place you must not, and I mean NOT miss to visit.

It is the only lodge situated almost in the middle of this fabulous Nature Reserve and it offers you a holiday of your dreams. Nature in the raw surrounds you, while the greatest staff tries to pamper you with incredible food and comfortable lodgings.
Let me show you a few pictures:


 It is early Fall and this visitor to Arowhon Pines, marvels at the deep blue waters of Little Joe Lake, on whose shores this fabulous Lodge is situated.


The Rondo of the dining room. Sit down and let expert staff serve you the best food, this side of your mother's kitchen.


 Early morning and the easy chairs are still empty and a hint of fog still lies between the azzure sky and the deep blue waters of Little Joe.


 The Dining Room in which "Delectable" is spelled with a capital "D"


 A young ( this year's ) Loon prepares for its flight South.


 Two Canoeists in heavy morning fog depart for a day's outing.

If you want to experience a truly memorable holiday: Stay at Arowhon Pines, in Algonquin Park. 

Go on ! What's keeping you ? 

Bertstravels has gone there again and again and again. 


Greetings from South Australia!

Hello Theresa, David and Adam,

This is DL from Adelaide, South Australia, writing to you. My dear sister-in-law, EL, has just forwarded to me a lovely email you sent her.  I’d like you to know what a thrill that gave me. In fact, it gave me goose-bumps because, just before opening E’s email, I’d changed the desktop background photo on my computer from the Via Rail cross-Canada train to – wait for it – the Arowhon Pines dining room!!  

I loved reading your message, and seeing the photos of the dining room in snow. What a contrast – and what beauty of a very different kind, too.  My stay with you, though brief, was absolutely marvelous, and I enjoyed staying in my beautifully refurbished room in K and E’s cabin. The meals in your dining room were sensational! 

I took a series of magical photos of Arowhon Pines at dusk, and am attaching some for you. The first one is the one that I’ve got on my desktop now. I hope you enjoy them.

Warmest regards,
