Father Nicholas McFarlane is a fantastic home baker. His pies are legendary throughout Sylvania and always a favourite at the dinner parties held by the McFarlanes.
Mother Elizabeth McFarlane loves model making. She specialises in origami, the ancient art of paper folding, but is very skilled in lots of other kinds of model building too. Elizabeth recently completed a scale model of the Starry Point Lighthouse at Sea Breeze Cape, it even had a real working light.
Sister Laurette McFarlane has inherited both her parents' creative traits. Laurette is a whizz in the kitchen, and makes the most wonderful 'illusion' cakes. She made the cake for her father's birthday last year, and it looked just like a triple-tiered apple pie!
