HARPES EOLIENNES
WINDHARPS


Connu comme le "passage vers l'Ouest canadien", le Site Historique National de la Fourche (The Forks) préserve et commémore 6000 ans de son histoire. Après que nous soyons sorties de l'hôtel, nous avons visité une petite partie de ce site. D'étranges construction avec de beaux dessins sur leur bases nous ont accueillies. On nous a dit qu'il sagissait d'harpes éoliennes. Nous ne les avons malheureusement jamais entendu chanter.



Known as the "Gateway to the Canadian West", The Forks National Historic Site of Canada preserves and commemorates its 6000 year history. After we got out of the hotel, we decided to take a look at a small part of this wonderful place. We noticed the strange constructions in a circle. We were told that they were windharps. They had wonderful carvings on their bases. Alas! We never heard them play...





Et n'oubliez pas les aventures de Lapin Poulain!!!! :)
And don't forget Lapin Poulain's adventures!!! :)

They're so interesting-looking. It's a shame you didn't hear them play, but it seems like a fun trip. :0)

But where in Canada is this unique structure? I wonder if it requires strong wind?

This is most unusual. I would have to have heard them, too.

I can't comment at Anony's anymore so I guess I'm forced to pester everyone else. See, what trouble she has wrought upon you all!!!
