Thursday to Sunday October 7 -10, 2010-Happy Thanksgiving Canada!

On Thursday, we packed up and headed for my sister's cottage near Lindsay, Ontario. We stopped several times along the way to take photos. The whole weekend was beautiful, bright and sunny. Some days were warmer than others. In fact, Friday was like a summer day.

We arrived mid afternoon and stopped by Double M Campground to see if Daphne was there but the office was closed so we just went straight to the cottage.

Betty and Garth were getting dinner ready. Ribs!

The GBH (Great Blue Heron) was also there to greet us

On Friday, I started my day with a nice walk on the cottage road. After lunch, Betty and I went shopping in Lindsay for a couple of hours before meeting the guys in the parking lot at Fleming College. The Trans Canada Trail runs behind the college so Betty thought since it was such a nice day we should walk part of the trail. It was indeed a lovely day for a walk.

After that we had dinner at Swiss Chalet. Betty thought that would be a good idea as we know we can eat the food there.

The kitties all came out to greet me

And this is Tiger

On Saturday most of the day was spent getting Thanksgiving dinner together as this weekend is the Canadian Thanksgiving. I did go for my walk first thing and then walked down to get the paper with Betty mid morning.

Garth's daughter and her family arrived mid afternoon and we had turkey, stuffing (I made El Peto stuffing for Gordon and I - it tasted like plastic) and all the trimmings. I love turkey!

This morning I didn't walk, just packed up to come home. It was only 2C (36F) when I got up but it warmed up to a respectable 20C (68F).

It was another nice drive but we only stopped for one photo as we were anxious to get back. I went and picked up some groceries and got everything unpacked then tacked email! Nearly four days without internet, I don't know how I survived! Gordon did go into Lindsay and found some open wifi so he had at least checked email. Actually it wasn't that bad without it!

My condolences go out to George on the death of his son. I have been reading George's blog now for about seven years. I'm very sad for him.


  1. Glad you had a happy Thanksgiving. Your photos are so pretty - especially the fall colors.

  2. I agree with Gypsy. I still remember those fall colours from living in Kingston and Gananoque. I miss the reds here on Vancouver Island. The photos bring good memories. Thanks ☺

  3. I sure enjoyed the fall colors too! Thanks. :)
