Summer Vacation!

I had the opportunity to take a few days off and enjoy Summer 2012.  I have been off since last Friday and I STILL have a nice long weekend ahead of me back in Toronto.

We began our travels on Saturday- myself and Cdawg, Bolt and Niki.  
We got to the beautiful Bruce Peninsula and of course HAD to go see WILLIE EMERGING for a quick photo-op:


We headed north from Wiarton and arrived just in time for some pre-dinner cocktails, and then dinner at my moms.  Pete made homemade, fried Bass.  De-friggin-licious.   

There have been some moments as of late where I feel maybe I will once again give up fish in my diet (not sure how "right" abot it I feel).  Let me tell you PETE'S BASS was not one of those times.  So.  Good.  

Mom also made (my fav) Spinach Lasagna and we ate like kings.

We then headed back to our sleeping abode (Grammas old house) and had a wee fire.

Also on the agenda was a trip next door to visit Mo.

I have talked about MO before here.  Well Mo's pen has some new additions!  A Jenny and a Baby!

BOLT had to leave us the next day but Lil Kel, Tiffy and Baby D joined us on Sunday for Canada Day.

We hot hit the beach and put a pringle on Lil Kels bum while she rested HOPING, PRAYING that a shithawk may land and take it away:

No such luck though. :(

In the evening we had another nice dinner and THEN
We had a reaaaal big fire!

On Monday we headed toward Port Elgin to see C Dawgs family.  Gladly, we stopped by the Saugeen First Nations Amphitheater on the way to stretch our legs.
This place was so lovely and serene. 

Someone get married there so I can go back

Once we arrived and showed NIKI around the Port (equals poutine and ice cream at the beach) we bid adieu to Niki and spent 3 wonderful days in the Port.

C dawgs sister Tracey and the kiddies came up as well.  There was beach time a-plenty, and a very necessary visit with Clint and Maggie`s fam.  I HEART Clint and Maggie. Such goodness going on there.  Also I want their house.  And their humungo yard..... I`ll take the hammock

During our time in Port Elgin we ate some good food, had some good visits, but my very favorite would have to be riding around the town on these pretty ancient bicycyles like a pair of teenagers.


It is so wonderful to get away ....  But there is something JUST as sweet as coming home.

Especially to a tuxedo cat (who was well taken care of during our absence) rubbing his lil` head against my feets and legs.
