We are home now, recovering from the drive, tired but happy. Kate has already left for work this evening, so it’s just me and KD here at the ranch. We left little doggie at the boarding place while we were gone, and when we picked her up this morning, it was WAG CITY! Everything KD could wag, was wagged! She was writhing in happiness when Kate brought her to the car and it took just awhile to get her settled down. And, I guess KD loves even me 🙂
I’ll include some pics on this post so you can see a few faces, a few places. Firstly, you should be introduced to Dick & Judy, our wonderful hosts during our stay in Ontario. They are just the greatest people, fun to talk to, fun to do things with (the 4 of us spent our last evening there singing in the kitchen). They are always smiling, ever helpful, the kind of folks you’d count as good neighbors!
And, I’ll throw in a couple of pics of the house and yard, front and back, just to give you an idea of our surroundings.
I took one more shot of their front yard and street – in the distance, you can see some water, and that’s the St Lawrence River, just 1.5 blocks away (or 2 light years, whichever). They live in the town of Prescott, Ontario.
I actually took this shot from Ft Wellington, a historic site just down the road from where Bret lives. In the photograph you can see across to Ogdensburg, NY.
The guy in the second photo had all these wonderful home-made jams, jellies, and marmalades. I didn’t think I cared much for marmalade, but his was GREAT!!
We went to Merrickville, Ontario, we went to the Spencerville Fair, we went to Ottawa………. more pics to come!
