Trippin' Around!

Hey there Everyone! 

This week I am in London spending time with my son, Colin and his lovely wife Marie.  I couldn't leave Ontario without a little visit.  They drove 7 hours to Ottawa to pick me up and stayed for a couple of days to spend some time with Miss Emily.

We took a family boat tour of the Ottawa river.  The weather here is beyond fabulous with 30 degree temps. almost every day.  There was a lovely breeze on the river and we all had a wonderful day.  The baby is so easy to travel with.  She doesn't cry all that much and while on these activities she is the best.  (yes I am a very proud Nana). 

Here are a couple pic's of our tour.

Our newest little cruiser! 

Since arriving in London, we have been running from place to place and enjoying the fall activities here.  The first day I went to St. Jacobs and the massive open air market.  St. Jacobs is a Mennonite town and it's not unusual to see the familiar horse and buggy on the main road.  We took a horse drawn tour of a working farm and got a lot of information about these wonderful people and how they live.  I took some pic's of course. 

Our transportation.
Our next road trip was to a place called Winter Wheat just outside of London.  Here is a link to the website.  HERE 
This place is owned by a wonderful folk artist named Lucy Ogletree.  Her area is filled with whimsical art using recycled items.  Loved it.  Here are a couple of pic's
Me and a friend. 

my son looking up to see what the wooden man is spying!

This is what he was looking at lol.

This is a little place called the chapel filled with rustic furniture and quiet music and whimsical art.  So peaceful.  Could have spent a lot of time here.
I will be in London until Friday coming and then I am heading back to Ottawa by train.  It is fun playing tourist but I miss the babe lol.
Gotta run - we are heading for the beach ta ta! 
Cool Running hugs!
