    • Yes, our original family cottage was called Dodge Inn and it was on 3rd Street North at Seba Beach. It was built in 1919 by my grandfather Norman. I was told it used to take two days to travel to the lake from Edmonton if it rained. I am not sure who mode of transport we are talking about.

  1. Hey David,

    I really appreciated you running in this past municipal election. It meant a lot to vote for someone that I felt represented me well. Keep up your excellent community building work and mindset. I am hoping to get the Dickensfield Community Garden growing this year. The way that you replied to The Local Good survey, on the topic of local food/agriculture in particular, shows that you have good intentions and a wealth of knowledge. Let’s keep make Edmonton the sustainable community we know it can be.

  2. Hi David, I really love your panoramic photo of Seba Beach in the fall. My family has a house on South Seba as well, and I’m the 4th generation there. My great grandparents, the Kennedys, bought the property in 1934. It had a small building on it which they tore down in 1937 to build a two story house. It was originally called the Kensington, and was renamed Osocozy by my grandparents sometime in the 1950s. The house is still what we use and enjoy today, and we’ve added two bathrooms, a metal roof, and done a few other small renos over the years. My husband and I and our three children go out as much as we can throughout the summers. Its absolutely a family gem, and I feel so lucky to have had Seba in our lives all these years.

    I was wondering if you have a high resolution image of your fall photo that you would be willing to sell or provide to me? I would love to get a blowup print of it to put on our wall at home in Calgary. (I would not use it for any commercial use). Thank you so much for your consideration.

    Best regards,

    • Hi Karen, sorry I am so bad at following the comments! Send me an email at and a low res clip of the photo you are referring to. I think I know the one you mean, but just to be sure. I would be pleased to provide a copy. We made a canvas print of the fall shot of Seba Beach across the water.
