Tuesday August 25, 2009 - Looking for a Watch

We had a beautiful sunny, breezy day today with a high of 26F (79F).

When I woke up this morning my watch had stopped at 5:25 a.m. Although I think I just replaced the battery last Fall, I thought it might need a new one. We had to go in to town anyway to set pins for our new credit cards with the chip in them. After that I picked up some strawberries at the grocery then to the Mall to have my watch checked. They don't change batteries they send them out with a 3 week return. That won't work for me. So, she sent me back downtown to Johnson's Jewelers. We could have walked there from the bank! Anyway, it's not the battery. So we drove back to the Mall to see if I could find a new one at Zellers. Didn't like what they had. So we came home and had lunch and headed the 30 miles or so in to Peterborough to Walmart. There I got a watch, not the one I wanted, but it will do. While there I picked up some groceries and stuff. It's not a Superwalmart but has a Grocery Shelf as they call it so I was able to get most of my non-perishable items.

After that we drove to the Riverview Park & Zoo. It's a free zoo and quite a good one considering the price or lack thereof. Here are some of the animals.






Barbary sheep

Two humped camel

A really big yak

This baby yak was just born on August 4th

I took this photo on our way back. We thought it was pretty with the cows in the foreground.

The plan today before the watch fiasco was to wash the RV. Needless to say that didn't get done.


  1. Beautiful pictures of the cute animals. Quite a lovely free zoo, I wonder who supports it?
