Saturday June 6, 2009

What a beautiful day today was! We could use a few more of these, please! With a low of 13C (55F) and a high of 25C (77F) and a few cloudy periods, it was the best day we've had in a long while.

I did go on my walk this morning and after breakfast we got ready to go in to Ottawa to my sister's for lunch.

We arrived around 11 a.m. and shortly after that, our nephew, Nick arrived (his wife, Becky was working), followed by our niece, Danica who had been refereeing soccer. We saw photos of Margie and John's recent trip to Vancouver, Victoria and Whistler. They hooked up the camera (my old one) to their new 42 inch TV. They had a great time!

Then we had lunch, very good, pasta salad, wraps, cold cuts and bean salad with rhubarb crumble for desert. Thanks Margie & John!

We left around 2 p.m. as Gordon had a doctor's appointment to check his hemoglobin which had been low when he had his medical but it's fine now.

After that we stopped at Loblaws for a few groceries then off to Jack Pine Trail where we saw quite a bit of wild life. Here are the photos.
