Our last full day here in Ontario this year......

Where are we today
clic on a pic to enlarge it
       Woke up to a much cooler damp foggy morning today. But is gonna warm up nicely again. Headed to Pettigrew's Garage for 8 am, glad it is only 3 blocks away, don't want to drive too far in the fog this morning. Got Dale to check the wheel balance on the one tire from last year that we did not check and sure enough it was out of balance. All good now.
pretty foggy here at 7 am
        By 9 am the fog had burned off and all was good again. Skies clearded and temps back into th 70s F again, wonderful.
     We headed to New Hamburg to pick up Suzie's Dad to go for lunch. In the parking lot noticed this interesting car that I have never seen before. And I just had to go check it out. And Audi R8 all wheel drive. With a V8 engine under the back window. It has a top speed of 315 kph (195mph) But for this year it has a V-10 engine top speed 330 kph (209mph) List price starts around $180,000.00. Think for that money we could have a very nice RV, not as fast but something we could enjoy much more.
Interesting?
no trunk a V8 engine
         Well we met her Dad, brother and SIL and the 5 of us did a nice country drive to Anna Mae's Restaurant in Millbank Ontario  a nice article was done by The Food Network's show "you Gotta Eat Here" you can click here to see it. We have been here a few times in the past, one of our favorite places to go for home cooked meals. But our main reason is always for their Broasted Chicken, the best we have had anywhere. They seat 178 people (maybe more with the new additions and there is almost always a line up to get in. 5 minute wait at 11:30 and we were seated in one of the many dining rooms. Always great service and excellent food.
the huge arch is part of the new addition
great idea for old pallets
love this sign
of course we all had the chicken
oh so good
beverage and desert included,
I had raspberry cheesecake
this is a fun table to eat at
home mades pies, desert and breads
       This is Amish/ Mennonite Country and most the employees if not all are Amish. Some ride to work on their Bicycles. Check them out below, no pedals !
Amish Bicycles cool eh?
            While we were gone George from M&G Portables stopped by to pump out our sewage tanks before we hit the road in the morning. Thanks George see ya in the spring.
           Then we home around 3 pm and enjoyed a wonderful afternoon enjoying our e-readers outside. My newest book by Lisa Scottoline  (Think Twice) another interesting murder mystery novel about twin sisters. We read until almost 7 pm in between a couple walkabouts, putter around and stuff. Now getting cooler and dark, time to head inside. Post the blog and relax with our popcorn, apple and a show on tv (Lethal Weapon).
what a wonderful afternoon
         That was it for wrapping up things and family visits. And after that wonderful filling lunch, plus desert, supper tonight is sharing some popcorn and an apple.
        Thanks for stopping by again and tomorrow's posting will come to you from Cambria New York at least that's our plan.

  4. So you going to run back and buy that red car. It sure would be fun to see you running around in it while boondocking in the desert.

  5. Oh that restaurant. My sort of place. Old world charm and fab food. The chicken and cheesecake would have been my choice too. Loved the carriage seating. Was it reproduction? The Amish bikes look like posh scooters. Fascinating post. I'm going to look up that book. I'm still stuck in my chick lit. It's taken ages as I find reasons not to read due to it being uninspiring. I won't move on though and abandon it. I have to see it to the bitter end.

    1. Anna Mae's is a wonderful place for homemade food, and charming. The Buggy table was custom made by the Amish just for this purpose but real buggy wheels and parts. The bikes are like adult scooters would be fun and a nice way to travel about.
      I am enjoying this book a fast read and hard to put down.

  6. Many years since we've been to Anna Maes and it was definitely a favorite place of ours. They sure know how to do things right. I think we're right on the edge of avoiding the nasty winter weather which will be upon this area shortly. All the best in your upcoming travels this winter.
