090909-Who's 61?

What an absolutely beautiful morning it was for my birthday, bright, sunny 16C (60F) with a light breeze! I had a nice walk and there were lots of blue jays out to greet me. So, here I am, another year older and hopefully, wiser.

After breakfast I sat outside and read for a bit and took some photos. We also put away all the outside stuff that we wouldn't need today in preparation for tomorrow's travel back to Ottawa. I took some more photos around the park.

We left early this afternoon for the cottage. Betty was making dinner for my birthday. We thought maybe since it was such a nice day that we might go for a boat ride but when we got there we found out that Garth was sick so we didn't see much of him although he did get up to barbecue the steaks.

On the way to the cottage I took this photo of the changing leaves. Lots of trees are looking more and more like Fall here.

Betty, Gordon and I did go for a nice walk and took a few photos. We saw this beautiful Monarch butterfly.

It was a great meal and a nice way to spend our last night in Lindsay.

My birthday butter tart!

My sister from Ottawa tracked me down at the cottage to wish me a Happy Birthday also.

Thanks to all the people who sent me birthday wishes via my blog comments, Facebook & email. I really appreciate it!
