Canada Through My Eyes
A Journey of Stories, Pictures, and Poems
by Martin Groenewoud

Through photo’s, short poems and short personal stories the Author, Martin Groenewoud (Martin), expresses his admiration and his love for this great country called Canada. His personal feelings and thoughts written down reflect his emotional bond with the grandeur nature, beautiful wildlife and friendliness of Canada. If you have ever travelled Canada or have visited the Sunshine Coast you will surely relate to these poems and short stories, and the photo’s might bring back many good memories. This book is based on photos taken by the Author, Martin Groenewoud, or by family members while travelling across Canada’s Provinces and Territories. And primarily based on photos taken by the Author, during the family’s Summer Vacations in Sechelt on the Sunshine Coast, British Columbia.

The Author, Martin Groenewoud (Martin), was born in Amsterdam, the Netherlands on December 22nd, 1954, and grew up in ‘Nieuwendam’, the Northern part of Amsterdam. After finishing High School, he studied Mathematics and Economics at the ‘Vrije Universiteit’ van Amsterdam. Martin worked in the IT Industry for 38 years, of which 12 years at one of the large Dutch Banks and 26 years for IBM, before retiring in 2015. He lives in Ouderkerk aan de Amstel with his wife Jeannette, his son Dennis and his daughter Ronesca. In 1972 Martin visited Canada for the first time and fell in love with Canada instantly. After that first visit most summer vacations were spent travelling across many Provinces and Territories by motorhome. In 2007 they purchased a piece of property in Sandy Hook, Sechelt where they built their own cottage. Since 2008 they call the Sunshine Coast their second ‘home’. A piece of paradise, ‘a home away from home’. Throughout all their travels Martin wrote poems and short stories illustrated by landscape photos and wildlife photos which are reflected in his book. For Martin coming to Canada feels like coming home.
