Where are we today?
clic on a pic to enlarge itIt was another cold morning, but no frost. We were at my Daughter's in Aurora Ontario for the night. A great visit with the family again. We stayed there last night to avoid the holiday weekend traffic travelling home last night.
But... we waited until 9 am, after the grands headed off to school and the rush hour traffic would be done. Back roads to hwy 400 then south to the 401 and west to Plattsville was our plan. We crossed over hwy 400 and planned to hop on and head south. NOT ! Looking north and south all 3 lanes were at a stand still. No turn here, lets take the scenic route. GPS was not co-operating so back to the paper maps. The way we used to travel. Taking the not busy back roads through a few small towns and villages (roads we have not travelled for over 20 years). We got to practice our navigational skills once again. In preparation for our southern migration in 8 days. It ended up a very nice scenic route and only about 25 minutes longer that the main highway. Sure beats sitting and not moving in the traffic.
|it was a very nice drive today|
and hardly any traffic at all
|love the quiet back roads|
A nice tasty light lunch then I headed off to New Hamburg, First thing to get my hearing aid fixed. In no time at all a new part was installed and I can hear again ! Me happy and Suzie even Happier ! Picked up a few supplies, stopped by Pettigrew garage in town for oil change on the car. As well as have Dale check out the shinny on the car. looks like one of our tires has a belt shifted. So I will pick up 2 new tires tomorrow and we can fix that issue. Canadian tire money for the tires so no cost to us.
Now we can actually sit outside and read for an hour or so, not too bad about 65f, sweater on and the fresh air is wonderful. Then before we know it 5 pm already! Fire up our weber Q, make a salad and grill a tasty salmon fillet for supper.
|ended up not too bad of a day|
|Oh so tasty, and some leftover salmon as well|
Thanks for stopping by for a visit and taking the time to comment if the spirit moves you.
