Subject: RE: BS: Ozzie Catter coming to Ontario
Well we have been, gone and come home again. We had a wonderful time. Unfortunately wasn't able to connect with Marion as we didn't have a phone, c'est la vie.
We had our Tim Hortons coffee but decided we preferred coffee from a local place on Kingston Road, nice folks who made good coffee.
Toronto has some interesting museums...the Bata Show Museum, the Textile Museum of Canada, the ROM, Casa Loma (I suppose it could be called a museum?) and a quilt shop within walking distance of our accommodation, what more could a crafty girl want. And we got to Kensington Market.
We had our weekend in Niagara and tried icewine, oh my, how yummy. The falls are awesome and the main street is.....well.......hard to describe but I think "tacky" (as mentioned above) has to come close. And we got wet on the boat.
It was lovely seeing Son again and meeting his GCG who is a sweetie and I hope a keeper. We even had a couple of trips to Brampton to meet his friends, we had Thanksgiving dinner with them which was nice and tried pumpkin pie for the first time.
Don't know if I will ever get back but I would like to....but it's such a long way and that flight is a killer. Took 24 hours for my ears to finish unpopping when we came home.
